This proposal contains my suggestions for the participation of my country in the international festival in London.
Art and historical buildings
Aswe have plenty of world-wide famous museums in Spain, such as “el museo del prado” or the “Guggeheim”, we should get profit of that and show the best works of eachmuseum in the festival, so as every single visitor can appreciate our art.
Besides, we could organize a photographic display of the most important sights in thecountry, including, obviously, Burgos´ cathedral, the Alhambra palace or the “Sagrada familia”.
According to the “restaurant magazine”, Spain has threerestaurants in the top 10 of their ranking, and, what´s more, the Spanish chef Ferrà Adriá has been said to be the best chef in the world for the last 5 years.Apart from that high-level cuisine, any region of Spain has its own traditional recipes, like paella in Valencia, cod in Bilbao, “pintxos” in San Sebastian, and soon.
Therefore, it would be awesome if we could have our best chefs (Adriá, Arzak, Berasategui…) cooking dishes in the festival, accompanied by more local and amateurchefs, so that our visitors could “taste the real flavor” of Spain.
Customs and traditions
We should bring representatives of the most famous “fiestas” inSpain, like the “San Fermines”, “the Fallas of Valencia” or “the Tomatina”, accompanied by live performances of “flamenco” and “jotas”, for example, in order to makepeople conscious of our traditions.
My proposal would give visitor a whole view of Spain´s culture, and I hope it meets with your approval.
