The exhibition consists of nine roll-up panels in Catalan and a scale model of a Montseny newt. It is also accompanied by small panels with texts in Spanish and English.

More than twenty thousand visitors

Since it opened in May 2018, more than twenty thousand people have already been able to visit "My name is Calotriton and I only live in Montseny!", which during three years of itinerancy has been exhibited in thirty municipalities in the counties of Barcelona and Girona, including the eighteen municipalities of the Montseny Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve by the end of the year.

Now, this new tour of the municipal libraries of the Maresme region will give impetus to the dissemination of the reality of the Montseny newt, which will reach a very wide and diverse range of audiences.
