UV presents the first ‘intangible falla’ in history at La Nau
- February 6th, 2017
Due to the recent statement of Fallas festivity as UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the UV School of Engineering presents the ‘intangible falla’ at Cultural Centre La Nau. This is the first intangible falla in history. The presentation of this project, an open event, will take place today Monday, 6 February, at 11:30 am in Aula Magna.
The event will count on the interventions of Antonio Ariño, Vice-Principal for Culture and Equality; Pere Fuset, Councillor for Culture and Festivals of Valencia; Maria Oliver, Councillor for Youth, Cultural Activity, Education, Home and Heritage; Raquel Alario, Fallera Mayor of Valencia; Francisco Grimaldo, Assistant Director of the UV School of Engineering, and Emilio Soria, Director of UV Master’s Degree in Data Science.
The intangible falla is an artificial intelligence project that suggests public involvement to build it daily until 19 March. The initiative will become a reality in the form of several monuments and actions that will be explained during the presentation ceremony.
The intangible falla will be built earlier, although this usually occurs in early March. The assembly of the first intagible falla will begin 6 February during the open presentation ceremony.
This monument has the institutional support of Universitat de València (Cultural Centre La Nau, Language Policy Service and Chair for Scientific Dissemination); Central Board Fallera, Valencia City Council (councillorships for Youth and Festivals), Valencian Institute of Tourism Technologies, EMT Valencia and the Guild of Falleros Artists. Furthermore, it also has the financial support of Arròs Dacsa, Destilerias Tenis, Datomedia, NEV Coaching, Grupo CAPS, TopRun.es and Taberna Alkázar.
