February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

 "Occidens is a beginning of a discovery. Occidens has an universal scope. We built different narrative levels, so you can choose what do you want.”

The first stop along the journey is the Classic era, marked by the archeological remains of an ancient, pre-Roman Visigoth city.

The Cathedral, the ultimate symbol of Christianity, marks the Middle Ages.

Famed theologist, jurist and economist Martin de Azpilcueta is used as the example of the region's transition to the Modern Age, and is depicted as so for visitors.

The Counter-reformation is showcased as is the expansion of  missionary work, as exemplified by St. Francis Xavier.

"With the sound that involves these spaces, you can feel the emotions, the feeling of this age. The can enjoy with different things, they can play, investigate, and learn and touch. And it is very interactive, there's some things for kids, some things for adult people. It is an emotional dialogue, which is complementary with the main idea.”

The designers, an architect and a film director, hoped to create a different feel and ambiance within the exhibit to mark each era. The goal is to visually explain how Christianity and modern society are tied together, and specifically  how religion influenced Western society.
