Mètode’s new monograph is titled ‘La cala encantada. Ciencia y cultura alrededor de la cala mediterránea’ (The enchanted cove. Science and culture on the Mediterranean cove). It is about the Mediterranean coves and its geological, morphological conditions, their relation with literature and painting, or the effects of tourism on them. The monograph is coordinated by professor emeritus of geography at Universitat de València Vicenç M. Roselló.
The Mediterranean cost is full of small coves. Strictly speaking, the coves are defined by its calcareous component, which is a feature of the Migjorn coves in Menorca and Sa Marina in Mallorca.
This monograph has been inspired by the painting by the Catalan Joaquim Mir, La cala encantada, as long with the different interpretations of the work by the Valencian artists Eva Mus, Rosa Torres and Anna Sanchis.
It includes several articles on topics as the Red Weevil pest devastating the Valencian palm trees, the 140th anniversary of the first natural park in the world, Yellowstone, or the essay about Marie Curie by Pilar Goya and María Luisa Jiménez.
