In addition, the audience will understand the particular resources of a profession, whose work depends on technical improvement and on the development of a series of personal values that range from a high degree of training and experience to characteristics of their own personalities such as courage or reaction capacity that allow and boost the success of each work.

A before and an after

The building that currently houses the installations of the Provincial Fire-fighters Museum of Alicante, was built in the mid 19th century in order to fulfill the functions characteristic of a textile industry. Initially the industrial space was destined to the production of the cotton manufacturing, later it was transformed into a felt factory and finally becoming a spinning mill until in 1985, when a large fire destroyed most of the building.

The building is part of the industrial complex that is developed along the Barxell and Riquer river basin. It is a linear building with a ground floor and two floors, with a structure built entirely of pine wood. The closing walls of the main facade were made with sandstone and rough stone and tuff in the remaining ones. These walls are interrupted by openings forming windows that maintain the same order on all three floors, they are splayed windows to allow the passage of as much light as possible. Stylistically the facade adopts certain neoclassical elements. The chimney is subsequent and is built in brick with a truncated cone shaped shaft.

The building has now been object of a huge renovation. The exterior maintains the structure described but the interior has been adapted in order to hold the large number of artefacts that are part of the exhibiting discourse about the industrialization of Alcoy and the history of fire-fighters.
