The National Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia (mNACTEC) has inaugurated the exhibition “40 years committed and ready for the future” by Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC). The exhibition provides an overview of the 40-year-history of the railway company through one of its most characteristic features, its capacity to adapt to the extremely diverse Catalan territory. The exhibition is part of the programme of events commemorating the 40th anniversary of the establishment of FGC, which aims to be an examination of the company’s future, rather than a retrospective.
The president of Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya; Ricart Font; the mayor of Terrassa; Jordi Ballart; the director of the Catalan Agency for Cultural Heritage; Josep Manuel Rueda; and the director of the National Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia, Jaume Perarnau were in charge of hosting the event.
The exhibition “40 years committed and ready for the future” was first held in the Palau de la Generalitat, to coincide with the official commemorative event for the 40th anniversary of the FGC. It was later on display at the Catalonia Railway Museum in Vilanova i la Geltrú. After its stint in the mNACTEC in Terrassa, ending on 3 May, this itinerant exhibition will visit Pallejà, Ripoll, Ribes de Freser, la Pobla de Segur, Sant Vicenç de Castellet, Sant Boi de Llobregat, Sant Andreu de la Barca and Cerdanyola del Vallès.
