Exhibition, lectures, music and video testimonies shed light on Second Republic on Formentera

expo 2a republica1The Formentera Office of Heritage is pleased to report that at 7.00pm Wednesday 1 December, Centre Antoni Tur "Gabrielet" will host the opening of "La Segona República a Formentera" (The Second Republic on Formentera). Running parallel to the exhibition on 9 and 10 December are a series of programmes at the "Ajuntament Vell" Exhibition Space. In addition, the opening of the exhibition will feature the participation of Aires Formenterencs.

Raquel Guasch, Councillor of Heritage, framed the project as "an exercise in historical memory championing local values". "Formentera deserved a display like this with material, witnesses and even songs that help us to remember and give visibility to a key part of our island's history". The councillor also applauded the involvement and research of all those who made the project possible. "It has been months in the making", she asserted.

The exhibition is curated by Manolo Oya and a special historical advisory team was formed to steward the initiative. The team's efforts were two-fold: gathering material for the exhibition and sending documentation to Formentera's Historical Archive and Archive of Image and Sound. The following individuals were part of the advisory team: Santiago Colomar, Artur Parron, Carmelo Convalia, Toni Ferrer and Adrià Tur Homar. Raquel González and Alfredo Montero collaborated in the research work as well.

The showcase of Second Republic-related graphic material and documentation will be on view at Centre Antoni Tur "Gabrielet" until 15 January 2022. The gallery is open from 10.00am to 1.00pm Tuesday to Saturday, and 6.00pm to 8.00pm Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The gallery is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

The following screenings and talks will take place at the "Ajuntament Vell" on 9 and 10 December:

From 6.30pm on 9 December, as part of two screenings which will also feature audio recordings, attendees can hear valuable contributions to research including: Sonya Torres Planells, who will highlight testimony about the library of Joan Colomar Torres ("Joan Peret") and a recitation by Josep Escandell Ferrer ("Pep de Jaume des Camp") of the first two couplets of a song about the Second Republic, which several sources attribute to Bartomeu Castelló Mayans ("Xomeu des Cafè").

At 7.30pm, Santiago Colomar will talk about the Plànol d'en Cinnamond urban development plan in La Savina and its links to the beginnings of local tourism.

And in two lectures scheduled at 6.30pm on 10 December, Isidor Torres will highlight the importance for Formentera of schoolteacher Lluís Andreu; and Adrià Tur Homar will talk about the origins and relevance of libertarian thought on Formentera as well as local trade union movements.

Councillor Guasch and Mr Oya thanked Sonya Torres Planells and the families of Vicent Serra Mayans, Josep Ferrer Tur ("Pep Andreuet") and Bartomeu Castelló Mayans ("Xomeu des Cafè") for their collaboration and contributions.

Consell explains project to designate Molí d'en Botigues as historical heritage site to residents of La Mola

foto 2021 reunio BIC la molaToday Raquel Guasch, Councillor of Heritage, as well as two technicians from the Formentera Office of Heritage, sat before a dozen La Mola residents at the Casa del Poble to explain plans to initiate proceedings to include Molí d'en Botigues ('Botigues Windmill') on the local list of cultural-interest monuments.

Councillor Guasch and the two technicians used the meeting, which was requested by the residents of La Mola, to give details about the project and possible knock-on effects, as well as related processes of public consultation and permit requests. The councillor welcomed the chance to explain the project first hand and address concerns among area residents. Molí d'en Botigues represents a crucial part of Formentera's ethnological heritage and is one of seven flour windmills that once existed on the island. It conserves part of the mechanics which were once used to grind and turn grain into flour.

El Consell s’adhereix a la celebració del Dia Europeu de les Llengües

foto 2021 dia europeu llenguesEl Consell de Formentera, a través de l’àrea de Política Lingüística, s’ha sumat a la celebració del Dia Europeu de les Llengües, que es commemora avui dia 26 de setembre, que promou el respecte a la diversitat lingüística, d’acord amb la Carta Europea de les Llengües Regionals o Minoritàries i la Carta de Drets Fonamentals de la Unió Europea.

Aquesta efemèride va néixer l’any 2001 de la mà del Consell d’Europa i la Unió Europea amb la intenció de fomentar la diversitat lingüística, l’aprenentatge de llengües i, en definitiva, l’entesa intercultural entre els milions de ciutadans europeus. Enguany, per tant, fa vint anys d’aquest compromís per la defensa del tarannà lingüístic i cultural divers d’Europa, un territori amb més d’una setantena de llengües.

La consellera de Política Lingüística, Raquel Guasch, ha destacat que “amb aquesta adhesió es va posar de manifest la importància de vetllar per la supervivència de les llengües i la normalització lingüística”. Guasch ha subratllat que “les llengües representen l’essència de les diferents cultures i, a la vegada, són el principal canal de comunicació. Per tant, preservar una llengua és protegir una manera de mirar, de comprendre i d’interpretar el món”.

En aquest sentit, la llengua catalana, com a pròpia del territori, és la contribució de les Illes Balears, juntament amb la resta de territoris on es parla, a la diversitat lingüística i cultural europea. Amb deu milions de parlants aproximadament, és la llengua sense estat més parlada a la Unió Europea i, de fet, té més parlants que algunes llengües amb estat.

Experiències d’alumnes dels cursos de català a Ràdio Illa

Per tal de conèixer algunes de les llengües parlades a Formentera, el Servei d’Assessorament Lingüístic, emetrà a través de Ràdio Illa al llarg de la setmana que ve una sèrie de breus entrevistes realitzades a alumnes dels cursos de català perquè parlin de la seua llengua. A més, cada un d’ells llegirà les primeres estrofes de la cançó “Visc a Formentera” en la seua llengua materna
