Redován 6/7/2018. The City Council of Redován, through the Department of Culture, has launched an initiative that aims to continue in the line of promoting among local residents and literary works of local authors. If last March the Consistory published the verses of the poet from Redova, Miguel Ruiz, who died a few years ago, now he has decided to take his verses to the street.
The mayor, Emilio Fernández, explained that “some of the banks in all the parks and squares of Redován have been labeled with phrases taken from Ruiz’s work”, except for one that carries a verse from another author “and that since the City we challenge to discover to those who realize this literary route by our parks “, has specified the mayor. In fact, he announced that those who discover it can go to the Town Hall, where they will be given a book by the writer from Redova.
Fernandez and the Councilor for Culture, Clara Ezcurra, have been responsible for presenting this initiative today in the Plaza de la Paz, and have encouraged “especially in the face of summer nights, which invite you to leave home and take a walk , to have everyone in Redován take a look at this initiative, “said Ezcurra.
The City Council of Redován reissued a few months ago two poems by Miguel Ruiz, ‘Boria de la inheritance’ and ‘La peña que me ampara’, with a thousand copies distributed among the public in schools, social centers, “to try to reach the greatest number of possible people, “said the mayor, who added that” now what we do is that poetry reaches even more through public spaces and awakens among the people of Cordoba the concern to know more about our writers, who after all, they are the literary heritage of our municipality. ”
Redován 2/3/2017. The Municipality of Redován has proposed to publicize and promote the work of local authors among their neighbors, and to begin, will reedit two poems by the late poet Miguel Ruiz Martínez (Redován, 1956-2009). This is ‘Boria de la inheritance’ and ‘The rock that protects me’, works that today have been delivered by the mayor, Emilio Fernandez, and the Councilor for Culture, Clara Ezcurra, to the family of the writer as a tribute to an act celebrated in the Redovanense Consistory.
Emilio Fernández, recalled that Miguel Ruiz “was always very attached to the culture of Redován.” The poet studied teaching but never exercised it, “but decided to devote himself to agriculture, to the land, to the dew, to the mountains, to the elements that accompanied him every day, and that are the protagonists of everything he wrote.” The mayor explained that the City Council has been behind this project for seven years, looking for the necessary funding for the edition in different institutions, “but being such a local author, it was very difficult to find who would suffice it”. That is why, finally, an economic contribution of the City Council itself has been made available to cover the costs of the edition.
In this way, a thousand copies of the poems will be published in the street, which will be distributed free of charge to the public in different parts of Redován, “because what is involved is to vindicate our writers and to know their work and vital and literary career. among its neighbors, “said Fernández. Miguel Ruiz Martínez came to have provincial repercussion and relationship with other contemporary authors, and his work is clearly influenced by the universal poet Orionno Miguel Hernánez, who dedicated, especially the first part of his literary life, to writing landscapes of orchard that surrounded him.
After his death the City Council decided to make it known and now a project that the mayor expects to continue with other artists from Redova is coming true, “because we have to reclaim what is ours, and at the local level these poems have a great value”, concluded the mayor of Redován.
