The aim of this conference is to discuss the role of national and international exhibitions, academies of Fine and Decorative Arts and polytechnical schools for the global diffusion of the Moorish Revival in the 19th and early 20th centuries. As recent research has shown, the display of the Islamic heritage of al-Andalus and its appropriation for exposition pavilions, together with the training of artists and architects, were significant in the spread and affirmation of the neo-Moorish style.
These and other questions will be the object of the international conference, to be held at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (ETSA-UPM).
