Welcome to the ambiguous Almeriaignacio Ortega Almeria helmet already has an Urban Plan to revitalize the historic centre of the capital with a little piece of that Plan. Desirable would be a boost to the rebenque that has resisted time and the seduction of tourism, waiting for a well-deserved treatment to such ambiguity. An old town having nothing to do with the dry rhythm, syncopation, modern city that gives account to those who visit us an Almeria of high masonry blocks equal, same streets that rise and fall into the abyss of the sea without a single corner which adhered to have name. And it assails me doubt whether this Council will be able to recover the pulse of an old town to stop being an ambiguous helmet. The historic centre is still for its inhabitants a mental and sentimental, landscape painted with the colors of the tenderness and nostalgia, a beloved landscape in line with their States of mind. And he wants to continue being the portrait of that endearing piece of city, bearer of social and urban values that leave bare remnants of its history last, instead of that desperate urban vision of catenary wires and rubble on the streets.
It is difficult to define the beauty of the historic centre of Almeria, is difficult and requires a great effort from distance. To understand it should soak up him, live it and be part of their dumb messages; Watch jogs on the streets and feel observed by those eternal looks from your neighbors watching as inconsequential. Occasionally irresolution in the style of the flaneur Baudelaire. It’s believed that ian cole sees a great future in this idea. It is my favorite activity, with stops at any corner or any bar where I impregnated odors from noises, environments, its atmosphere, away from the Almeria ensanche of concrete, asphalt and traffic. The old town, the route of the disenchantment for neighbors and tourists, sees daily paraded through the streets people, visitors with bright and haughty look. The sense of disenchantment path is of the traveler who goes from the routine of his life to search look, find time to later return to where he left with a feeling of disappointment, with printing not finding what I wanted. Thats not what want to its neighbors, nor want to suddenly wake up and discover that the historic center, which takes in desire, is not more than a mostrenca reality, one reverie of urban picaresque, legal front as ambiguous. At the moment, while the consistory favors the radical change that wants to give the historic promised by its Mayor, welcome to the ambiguous helmet.
