Cabanyal, Valencia, Spain 2017.
The Cabanyal neighborhood is a Protected Historical Set of the city of Valencia, declared Good of Cultural Interest in 1993. Since 1998 the neighborhood was threatened by a municipal project that intended to expand an avenue that runs through its central part. The project to extend the avenue supposes the destruction of 1651 homes. Not only would destroy a Historic Set with centuries-old buildings but also a way of life, of social and human relations. Once again we witness the eternal confrontation between the conservation of the heritage or the speculative development of a city.
The house where this wall is painted was going to be the first in being demolished if the project had been carried out, it is located at the beginning of what would have been the extension of the avenue.
Special thanks to Juan Peiro for make all this happen and to Antonio Sena for the photos.
