Pianist Alessandro Martire unveils new music video inspired by and filmed at lighthouses of Formentera

foto 2023v pianoThe Office of Tourism of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce that pianist and composer Alessandro Martire released a video of his new song "Faro de la Isla" today. Martire says that not only was the music inspired by Formentera lighthouses, they are also where the video was shot: La Mola lighthouse at sunrise, and Es Cap de Barbaria lighthouse at sunset.

Video for "Faro de la Isla"

Martire traced his decision to his love of "these inspiring places and their incredible nature". For the occasion, he brought the same Waves piano with which he gave a concert in Sant Francesc's Plaça de la Constitució last summer. The Office of Tourism Promotion has supported this project that associates the island with creativity, music, nature and tranquility.

Since 2021, Alessandro Martire has cultivated an original format with his Waves piano and shot video clips in natural locations like glaciers, frozen lakes, rivers and 3,000-metre-high mountains. Some of his other creations can be seen here.

The pianist and composer was born in Cuomo, Italy in 1992, and composed his first song at the age of 15. Inspiration for his songs is drawn from both classical and contemporary music.

Calendar of activities and events for month of May

foto 2023v agenda activa CThe Office of Tourism of the Consell de Formentera has put together a brochure of all the cultural, sports and active tourist activities on the island during the month of May. "In this way, we give visitors a guide where they can quickly find everything Formentera has to offer in the low season", said Alejandra Ferrer, vice president and tourism councillor.

A forthcoming activities calendar will focus on all the leisure options offered by the island's administration, associations and businesses--not to mention details on open accommodations and restaurants--toward the end of the high season. As Ferrer put it, "the ultimate goal is to have a programme with proposals covering 365 days a year". All this information will be included in a section of the Office of Tourism website and will be available at tourist information offices, as well as on social media, fairs and other promotions.

Activities agenda
The Consell's May tourist agenda features information and contacts with companies specialised in bicycle excursions, wine tasting, scuba diving, sailing boat rentals, horseback riding, wellness and health activities, birdwatching and environmental walks, gastronomic circuits, and more. It also includes the cultural and sports agenda.

"The idea is to foment year-round activities related to the natural environment, sports and culture; activities that promote the circular economy and diversification, and, at the same time, encourage local businesses to grow this offer. Programming like this is the best way to raise the island's profile", concluded the councillor.
