Xian warriors take up positions in the MARQ
The eight warriors and the horse of Xian that from next March 28 can be seen in the MARQ, in addition to 120 pieces from nine Chinese museums, have begun to leave their boxes and packaging where they have spent the last weeks since they left China.
It has been done by one of the terracotta soldiers who already looks inside his showcase in the third temporary room of the Alicante museum, where he will soon share space with his other colleagues. This has been one of the first pieces that have been unpacked from the exhibitionThe legacy of the Qin and Han dynasties , China. The warriors of Xian and has been made in the presence of the president of the Diputación, Carlos Mazón, and the until today deputy of Culture, Julia Parra, accompanied by the delegation of post that have moved to Alicante of the borrowing country.
Another terracotta figure has also been unpacked, which has been installed in the second room, but which is not part of the army of thefirst emperor of China of the Qin Dynasty, Qin Shi Huang.
Unpacking and placement
After their arrival at the museum premises last Friday, the pieces had to pass a period ofacclimatization and adaptation to the new environment. Once that time has elapsed, specialists from MARQ and the nine participating Chinese museums and institutions have begun the process of unpacking and placement, following strict compliance with theprotocols for handling and conservation of this important material, which also includes replicas of two carts.
The Warriors of Xian, which can be visited until January 2024, is the first exhibition on the legacy of the first emperor authorized by the People's Republic of China after the pandemicand is also unique for the number of pieces and the selection made.
The May Fair says goodbye until further notice of its traditional location in the port, next to the traditional amusement park. The works of the new leisure area that are called to give a new impulse and greater attractiveness to the maritime façade of Torrevieja will leave this celebration of exaltation of Andalusian culture in a "tribute", as announced on Wednesday by the City Council.
The event that brings together a multitude of visitors from the province and the Region of Murcia will be reduced this edition to just seven booths. All of them with their colorful striped prints and that sky of bulbs that will illuminate a space this time somewhat more constrained.
According to the Councilor for Fiestas, Concha Sala, this tribute to the May Fair will be inaugurated in the Parque de la Estación from the afternoon of Thursday, May 11, and will run until the early hours of Sunday afternoon, May 14.
The facilities, details the mayor, will be decorated in the Andalusian style "by the local groups that usually participate in the Fair and have wanted it not to pass by this year without making a nod to this popular party that has so much roots in Torrevieja".
In this sense, Sala highlights the importance of the local world of dance academies and schools that will be able to offer the assemblies and choreographies of the fair that they prepare every year. For this, a stage will be installed that will host the performances of the schools 'QK', 'Arantxa Blanco', 'Paya's', 'Mery Dance Academy', 'Souldance' and the Municipal School of Dance.
The Station Park will thus have the same musical atmosphere that will sound the entire enclosure, as well as a decorative lighting is also prepared, added the City Council.
Mecano, at the Municipal Theater
The fair will also coincide with the arrival of the musical Cruz de Navajas at the Municipal Theater. The City Council announced last month that Torrevieja would be the first Spanish city to host after Madrid and Barcelona this function that reviews the trajectory of the Mecano group.
The musical, which brings together a team of more than 100 people who will perform 35 of the best known songs of the people of Madrid, will thus be the other great claim that will host the salt city those four days. Tickets are on sale on the website www.culturatorrevieja.com
With a semi-desert climate – around 280 liters per square meter of rain and 325 of sunshine on average per year – it is normal for Torrevejenses to point to the sheets of hypersaline water of their lagoons, with 2,100 hectares, next to the sea, as the origin of their "microclimate". A supposed meteorological anomaly without scientific endorsement. Useful both for builders to have sold houses in the last 40 years wielding this unproven uniqueness, and very practical to explain situations in which the showers that arrive directly to the city are diluted like a sugar.
The Councilor for the Environment, Fanny Serrano, the manager of Agamed, José Manuel Nadal, and Ruben Torregrosa and Pablo Samper, from Proyecto Mastral, presented yesterday a climatological study project with which it is intended to clear the mystery of that influence of the salt flats: the climate of the Natural Park of the Lagunas de La Mata and Torrevieja. Television Torrevieja and the Natural Park itself also collaborate. Torregrosa, from Proyecto Mastral, explained that "popular belief has attributed to the lagoons the particular microclimate of Torrevieja and La Mata, although it is something that has not yet been studied." And he added that "with the implementation of this project begins a collection of data in different parts of the natural park to observe differences and to be able to offer in the future data with which to establish the influence or not of these two large areas of water in the climate of Torrevieja".
For this, there is the information provided by a total of six weather stations located in the center of the city, in the area of Aguas Nuevas, another in the Interpretation Center of the Natural Park, another at the southern end of the Torrevieja lagoon, next to Los Balcones, another at the northwest end of the same lagoon, already in the municipality of Los Montesinos and another in the Chaparral that naturally separates the two lagoons.
Torregrosa clarified that to offer "serious and contrasted" data of a study of this type requires a long period of time: "Five or ten years to start intuiting data, but to be able to make an analysis in conditions we must wait a minimum of 30 years".
This has not prevented first impressions from being made at a very preliminary level of data that were not known. "In these first months of testing, the park station has registered significant differences, especially in precipitation values with those registered in Torrevieja. For example, on November 19, just over 100 liters per square meter fell in Torrevieja in a few hours, while in the park area barely exceeded 25 liters. Something similar is happening with minimum temperatures. The new station of Los Balcones, located next to the southern shore of the Torrevieja lagoon registered 0.6 degrees on January 12 when in the rest the thermometer did not fall below 3.5 degrees. Differences that have occurred in other cold days. A quick explanation for this phenomenon, which requires much more verifiable data, is that this area of the term is located below sea level, in a trough, which in periods of winter stability would "concentrate" the cold.
All the information of the project will be visible on the website of Proyecto Mastral and also on a screen that will be installed in the Interpretation Center of the Natural Park, so that "any visitor will be able to see in real time the weather situation at the time of their visit to the park". The initiative also has a webcam that shows images of the surroundings of the lagoon of La Mata and a manual rain gauge that offers data for the State Meteorological Agency.
Pablo Samper indicated, for his part, that "perhaps it is the most exciting project in these 9 years and that the collaboration with Agamed is being very productive, increasing our data network and new stations and collaborating with them, some of them already giving surprising data". Serrano thanked Proyecto Mastral "for the commendable work they do", while explaining that "what is going to be done is a detailed and scientifically based study to offer more and better information about the climate of our Natural Park".
The manager of Agamed, José Manuel Nadal, explained that "this type of initiatives are included in the collaboration agreement with the Department of Environment that was signed a year ago" and that "one of the initiatives that we saw clearer was precisely to give contrasted and scientifically based data of the weather in Torrevieja, and that is why for two years we have been collaborating with Proyecto Mastral".
Torregrosa clarified that in the city there is a contrasted series of daily meteorological data, linked to the salt activity since the late 20s of the last century: rain, wind and temperature of the air and water of the lagoons are variables that directly affect the production of salt. These data mean that it rains the same as a century ago but there is a gradual increase in the average annual temperature.
