From 20.00h. to 21.30h. - Welcome reception at “Museo del Traje”.

Access by “2, Juan de Herrera Ave.“


History

The current Museo dates from 2004. The museum, despite being a newly created institution, has a long and curious history. Its origin lies in the Historic Costume Exhibition, held in 1925. In the keynote address at this event, the Count of Romanones raised the idea of making the temporary exhibition permanent. Two years later he created a Board of Trustees of the Museum who would take charge of the funds of the exhibition, receiving them from the state, and form them into the new Regional Costume Museum and History (1927–1934).

The Building

The architect, Jaime López de Asiaín, was awarded the National Prize for Architecture in 1969 for this project, construction beginning in 1971. The building was completed in 1973 and inaugurated in 1975. The building was built as the home of the Spanish Museum of Contemporary Art (MEAC), later to become the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía. After the MEAC left the building in 1992 the building lay unused. A restoration of the building was carried out at a cost of 21 million euro in 2005, allowing the building to become the home of the Museo del Traje. The building takes to form of a tower set upon a large horizontal element containing the museum section. All are elevated above the surrounding landscape allowing visitors to walk beneath the building into a shaded courtyard containing a large monumental staircase. Several glass pavilions are set between the ground and the building above.

From 20.30h. to 23.00h. – Banquet and “Flamenco” show in “La Masia de José Luis” Restaurant

Access by “Avenida de las Provincias”.


La Masía has a cosy Mediterranean-style restaurant that offers a delicious menu of traditional, renovated cuisine, with succulent dishes that you can enjoy in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.

The restaurant is located at the entrance to the largest public garden in the whole city, “La Casa de Campo”. It is also called the lungs of Madrid. Covering 1,722.60 hectares, the history of the Casa de Campo began with the decision by Philip II to move the Court to Madrid. The King built a manor house linking the Palace to the hunting area called El Pardo. Later additions involved, farmland and fields bought from the surrounding areas.

It was declared a Royal Forest under Fernando VI. As a result of the hunting and country atmosphere of the farm, as well as its proximity to the Palace, the original country house belonging to the Vargas Family was enlarged to host the Royal Family for such activities. Carlos III gave it a new twist when he introduced livestock and agriculture as one of its purposes, which would be continued by Queen María Cristina. During the Spanish Civil War, many battles were fought there, and the numerous bombings affected its antique construction, giving rise to new military constructions, which can still be seen.

For those guests staying in other areas of Madrid, the best way of reaching the restaurant is to take the subway to “Puerta del Ángel” station (line 6 – grey colour) or also “Lago” station (line 10 – dark blue colour).

Special dietary requirements (e.g., vegetarian and vegan meals) should have been ordered on your registration form, but please inform the staff at registration of any special needs, as well as your waiter in the restaurant itself.

Staff will be checking dinner bookings upon arrival, so please wear your ID badge Four courtesy buses for shuttling participants and their companions will be departing from the Restaurant after dinner. These buses will return delegates to the “Argüelles” station following the event (about 23.00h).
