The City Council of Madrid, to promote this historic enclave, has made available the municipal stand ( No. 1) to cultural groups looking to hold there cultural activities and proposals that attract the general public. For the renewal of the image, Fandom assumed the responsibility of working in such a special place inspired by one of the most original writers of the 20th century, Ramón Gómez de la Serna.
Anchovies and other curiosities
The design and creativity of the stand started from the description made by the great Gómez de la Serna about la Cuesta de Moyano which he referred to as the Boquerón Fair. To this was added the creative requirements of the first cultural collective that was to host the stand: the great organizers of the HUL literary festival (¡Hostia un libro!). A vintage style was combined with the modernity of the City Council proposal, working with a stand as a space to stop and read on the slope and learn about the different curiosities that can be seen on the outside.
The new stand had a very positive influence on the press and it served as a symbol to explain the City Council's plan to revitalize the hill.
