THEMED REPORTAGE

VERMOUTH, NOW AND ALWAYS

The classic vermouth is now the aperitif par of excellence. A tradition that has made a powerful come-back as the multi-dimentional phenomena of ‘the aperitif’... musical, poetical and literary — vermouth culture is reborn! Fancy a vermouth? With olives, ice, soda, in a cocktail… and, of course, along with some tapas, cockles, ‘patatas bravas’… In this realm, the scope of our imagination has no end!

UNIQUE EXPERIENCES WITH SOUL. GET UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH SOME LOCAL PROFESSIONAL PROJECTS AND EXPERIENCE THE REAL EMPORDÀ!

We want to tell you about some of the souls who live this land with intensity, so much so that they have transformed their work into a source of creativity. They bring us singular local experiences of gastronomy, wine, craftsmanship, culture, tourism… by their hands we are guided, meeting people and discovering secret places, into the authentic soul of Empordà.

LOOK INTO THE ART AND CULTURE OF EMPORDÀ THROUGH ITS CHARACTERS

Another world is unavoidable

THE CURRENT GENERATION HAS TO MAKE A DECISION

By Ignasi Rifé Photo Il·lustració Daniel Soms

“Every single journal should have a shrieking headline every day saying we are heading to total catastrophe. In a couple of generations organized human society may not survive. That has to be drilled into people’s heads constantly. The current generation has to make a decision (…), and it has to be done quickly, there’s not a lot of time”, said linguist, philosopher and activist Noam Chomsky on a recent interview. He also added: “There’s no way to exaggerate the challenge we are facing these days. Global warming is already the main cause for the extinction of many species at a rate not seen for 65 million years.


Stella Rahola Matutes

VISUAL ARTIST

By Gisela Chillida Photo Consuelo Bautista

A visual artist with a degree in Architecture, her works explore  contemporary symbols from an artisanal perspective. Her main interest lies in representing landscapes and in reflecting the ways utopias and visions from another time are embodied in today’s world. Her work includes drawings, video, photography and installation.

Tura Sanz Sanglas & Esther Pi

AN ALTERNATIVE SCULPTURE

By Eudald Camps Photo Yayoi Sawada

Apart from hailing from Empordà, what do Tura Sanz and Esther Pi have  in common? Both artists openly assume creative narratives alternative to the mainstream, challenging the hegemonic discourse of traditional art history; the work of both women addressing the ethnocentric, patriarchal perspectives that reinforce certain values over others.
