Game of Thrones is a series that has broken all records. It is followed by millions of people, it has broken the limits of computer piracy, it has unconditional fans and staunch critics: the HBO series leaves no one indifferent. And it’s obvious that the magical world devised by George R. R. Martin, captured in the images of David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, is a complex imaginary, complete and worth knowing.
And precisely to get to know it and be able to stroll around, the American chain HBO has set up the exhibition “Game of thrones: the touring exhibition”, which will tour the world and is premiering these days at the Maritime Museum of Barcelona. The organizers’ aim is to offer spectators a multimedia experience of immersion in the universe of the Seven Kingdoms.
A spectacular exhibition
There are more than a thousand square meters of exhibition of costumes, decorations and objects created specifically for the filming of the series. Starting with an introduction to the world of the Game of Thrones and ending with a visit to the emblematic chamber of the Iron Throne, the exhibition aims to bring the spectators closer to the fantastic world of GoT with ten spaces that can be visited.
Barcelona is the first stop of this exhibition, which will travel the world. We have chosen Barcelona as the first city because of its cosmopolitan character’, says Rafael Giménez, director of Sold Out, the local company that promoted the exhibition in Barcelona. Game of thrones: the touring exhibition, which has sold out for the first weekend, will be on display at the Barcelona Maritime Museum until 7 January. This series has had a great impact in Spain, and its recording in San Juan de Gaztelugatxe was one of the most impressive, as it fused the popular Basque enclave with Zumaia. Thus, the place normally visited by tourists became Rocadragón, the fortress of Daenerys.
