“The air is serene and clothed in magnificence and unused gentle, Salinas, when divine music sounds, ruled by your divine hand.” Fray Luis de León. I have to confess at this level, that the photographs of Pablo Millán’s newest undertaking in Porcuna have captivated me since I first noticed them: the brightly white arches, with easy white ribbed vaults on two flooring make up two sides of an exquisite courtyard in Porcuna.

The opposite two sides are the dividing partitions that, deliberately painted in white, work as an ideal complement to the arcades additional including worth to them. For any architect, The EUR of Rome by the architects Giovanni Guerrini, Ernesto Lapadula and Mario Romano instantly involves thoughts. Right here, with much more content material and with proportions able to relocating us. I’m additionally reminded of Giorgio de Chirico, the Italian surrealist painter, together with his collection “The Enigma of a Day” that a few of us carry in our hearts.

However, Romano and De Chirico apart, the work of the very younger Sevillian architect Pablo Millán is of the very best order. It transmits to us the spirit of the verse with which I began this writing. Serenity, magnificence, gentle, divine music. And, as soon as once more, depicted within the very correct photographs of Javier Callejas.
