Yesterday the celebration of the second anniversary of Els Magazinos, the leading gastronomic market in the Marina Alta, took place. In it, what will be the poster that commemorates this birthday was uncovered, whose design is in charge of the illustrator Carla Fuentes.
If last year Els Magazinos had the collaboration of the Eisner-winning cartoonist Paco Roca to give an image to its first anniversary, this time the Valencian illustrator Carla Fuentes takes over. For the poster he wanted to represent a couple, "to reiterate the 2" as the years that are fulfilled, in a position that indicates "very Mediterranean", with beach clothes at a table enjoying a cocktail and dessert, leaving the sight of the empty paella of what has been his food.
Fuentes has declared herself to be in love with the municipality, assuring that letting herself fall for it is "enjoying the gastronomy and the sun." "Dénia is the heart of the Marina Alta, and the Marina Alta is the best region in the world," declared the artist enthusiastically.
The market faces its new year by consolidating the projects that already existed, such as the Cuina del Territori and the Taller Turia exhibition hall, and betting on new ones in a very exciting way, as they say, such as the INCLOU-ME bar, which will be the first Hotel establishment in the country where everything will be run by people with functional diversity, CEE Raquel Payá students, who will not only serve dishes and drinks, but will be in charge of designing the image, deciding the direction of the business and anything else. that involves the bar.
It is not the first or the last collaboration with the students of Raquel Payá, because during the presentation of the poster, he took the opportunity to announce that starting next week Els Magazinos will have three of these students who will act as ambassadors to explain to visitors the history of the market.
In the same way, they wanted to thank Aprosdeco for continuously participating in the decoration of the entire gastronomic space, having also commissioned the colorful image that it now shows for its second anniversary.
