MEXICO CITY.- The landscape of Morelos State after Mexican Revolution and the imprints of Emiliano Zapata will be theme of an exhibition, “Zapata in Morelos”, integrated by a hundred historical objects, among them the hat and clothes that Zapata wore the day he died.

Zapata en Morelos will be presented in the National Museum of History “Castillo de Chapultepec” in early July 2010, showing as well 30 contemporary photographs of the landscape where the Revolutionary Movement took place.

The exhibition organized by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and the government of Morelos State is part of the commemorations of the Centennial of the beginning of the Revolution and the Bicentennial of the beginning of the Independence of Mexico.

Salvador Rueda Smithers, director of the National Museum of History, informed that the exhibition will show the geography that transformed the leader, as a way to “get even with Zapata followers”, and not just present a biography of the character. The pictures of Adalberto Rios Lanz and Adalberto Rios Szalay capture the Morelos landscape a hundred years after the struggle.

“These images testify for peoples that were about to disappear before the Revolution burst, and of the haciendas after the struggle: the Morelos of Emiliano Zapata”.

Among historical pieces at display stands out the hat and suit Zapata was wearing the day he was murdered, April 10th 1919, objects that keep the blood of this national hero.

The deck that Zapata tied to his suit, the agate he used as a charm, his bed, his saddle and some weapons, among them the gun that Francisco Villa gave him when they met in Xochimilco, are exhibited.

Other important pieces are the presidential chair where Emiliano Zapata never wanted to seat; a photograph in his childhood and another in his youth that is said was given to a girlfriend. Work created by contemporary artists regarding the Caudillo del Sur is exhibited as well.

Historical pieces are part of the heaps of Tlatlizapan, Anenecuilco and National of History Museums. Historian Salvador Rueda Smithers curated the exhibition based on the book Zapata en Morelos, edited by Lunwerg, Planeta and the Morelos State Government.

Zapata in Morelos is complemented with another exhibition, “Charros a Galope y la Revolucion”, which gathers 30 pieces part of Charreria tradition and 15 paintings created by Ernesto Icaza with the same theme.

Both exhibitions will be open to public visit during July and August 2010 in the National Museum of History “Castillo de Chapultepec”, Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 to 17:00 hours.
