We | Antonio S. Río Vázquez

«The only way that we still have to manage to be big, even inimitable if it is possible, is that of the imitation of the Former ones; what someone said of Homero, namely, that to learn to understand it well is to learn to admire it, costs equally for the works of art of the Former ones, especially those of […]

Dead space | Íñigo García Odiaga

The summer, the vacations and the leisure invite to going out to the street, to conquering the public space and to socializing.
