Olga Sala, lyrical singer and New Acropolis Sabadell volunteer, gave a lecture-performance about women composers in history.
Women have been silenced for centuries in many areas, and music has not been an exception. Women such as Santa Kassia (9th), Hildegarda von Bingen (11th century – 12th) and Maddalena Casulana (16th century) are examples of women composers who were underestimated in their time and recovered centuries later.
By commemorating International Women’s Day, once again this year, we gave a voice to their works.
A wine tasting is more an art than a science, since it requires a sensitivity and subtlety in the language which can transmit a fleeting impression in an exciting way. Trying to achieve this goal, the evening began with an explanation of the different wines that participants would have the opportunity of tasting, accompanied by a tasting of different delicious dishes.
And all this with a perfect combination, reciting poems to wine and to love, along with the wonderful music played by a great Brazilian pianist and the warm voice of a singer.
Dr. Granada is a professor at the University of Barcelona, specialist of Giordano Bruno, member of the international team editing the complete works by Giordano Bruno (Les Belles Lettres, Paris) and Vice President of the Centro Internazionale di Studi Bruniani.

For the third consecutive year, in the month of February, Dr. Miguel Ángel Granada brought all his knowledge about Giordano Bruno and Renaissance Philosophy to New Acropolis Barcelona.
On this occasion we examined the ideas of Copernicus, Digges and the investigations of Giordano Bruno, and discussed the implications of the ideas of these three philosophers and astronomers of the 15th and 16th centuries.
Karina Senatore inaugurated the exhibition entitled: “Bare Skin”. The author, together with her collaborator Nerea Urdangarin, gave a talk on the reasons that led her to create her work and what she wants to express in her creations. The work of Karina focuses on alopecia in women and the artistic treatment that can address this issue. This young woman and Fine Arts graduate discussed how art allowed her to undertake a journey of self-awareness and personal growth.
Social aesthetic stereotypes, in the case of women, give special importance to hair and this may lead women and girls to have difficulties interacting with others if they experience hair loss. The artist shows us that there are ways to face this situation with strength and also with beauty.
The Book Club that promotes and organizes the Seneca Library, presented the book entitled: “The Trail of the Dragon. Nature and Symbol in Alchemy, Mythology and Christianity” by its author Saulo Ruíz.
The Trail of the Dragon is a remarkable text about mysteries that have lain hidden for centuries, forgotten in their own obscurity due to the loss of the esoteric meaning behind them. Now a path to their understanding opens up before us, clarifying a very significant era in the history of thought, dispelling the mists of the origin and future of the cosmos, transforming our conception of the world and furthering the sublimation of the individual.
Sharing some moments of the great visit we made to the archaeological site of Castulo by its director, Marcelo Castro. There we were able to contemplate the portico of Trajan, the Mosaic of the Amores, Paleo-Christian construction, and the Punic tower.
A group of volunteers from New Acropolis Sabadell spent a recent morning cleaning up an area, made up of forest and trails.
This initiative is part of the Heket project for the conservation and cleaning of the surroundings of Sabadell (forests and trails). On this occasion we also talked about the diverse trees and plants that can be found in the area, and their usefulness for health and for everyday life.
This program complements the Ríos Project, which examines the quality of water and collaborates to the cleanliness of a stretch of the Ripoll river.
