Museo Valenciano de la Ilustración director steps down

Follows censorship controversy


Roman de la Calle, the director of the Museo Valenciano de la Ilustración (Museum of Enlightenment) in Valencia, has resigned after a row with politicians over images he refused to take down. They showed politicians implicated in a corruption scandal. A 500-strong demonstration gathered at the museum under the slogans, “We are Roman”, and “Culture without censorship”.
