20171205-elkanolegatua2017/12/11 > 2018/02/18

The 4th Centenary of the First Circumnavigation of the Globe Committee felt a strong desire to create a large sculptural group in honour of Elcano, but this proved impossible. However, far from throwing in the towel, the same Committee promoted a series of actions (conferences, exhibitions, pictorial and performance commissions), which have survived until today.
