After confirming on December 28, the approval of the economic financing of the future Carlo Simi-Sad Hill film museum, the journey has officially begun, which will begin by presenting what will be the finishing touch to all these years of work. This initiative was born from the proposal to recover the fictional Sad Hill cemetery promoted in 2014 by a group of volunteers passionate about cinema, 10 years of full effort and dedication, reflected in the award-winning documentary 'Unearthing Sad Hill'.

After this journey, this museum proposal emerged, a dream that exceeds all the expectations of those people who, with just a shovel in their hands, but with a lot of effort and enthusiasm, managed to place Burgos and the Arlanza region on the international film scene.

The Simi-Sad Hill Museum is being promoted under the express wish of the Simi family itself by the members promoting the project to recover the Sad Hill cemetery, together with the City Council of Covarrubias and in collaboration with the UBU (University of Burgos), and that as objectives the creation of a Chair of Cinema together with different European Universities is already proposed.

The Carlo Simi-Sad Hill Museum will house a permanent exhibition on the lower floor and a temporary exhibition on the upper floor. It is worth mentioning that this museum will be nourished by material from various countries, which will serve as a springboard to publicize the museum outside our borders and bring foreign audiences to take the essence of the museum to other countries.

The future Carlo Simi - Sad Hill Museum will offer even more, pretending to be a "living museum", hosting the possibility of giving conferences, presentations, screenings in the open air (Outdoor Area, in the so-called Garden of God) also responding to other diverse cultural initiatives and that, after their pertinent evaluation, can be promoted based on our means. The location of the Museum will be established in the so-called Casilla de Santo Tomás, located next to the church of the same name, in the municipality of Covarrubias, and although it will be the village of Rachela that houses it, the location will be defined as 'located in the Sabinares del Arlanza-La Yecla Natural Park.
