Pere Renom

“We have given you, O Adam, no visage proper to yourself, nor endowment properly your own, in order that whatever place, whatever form, whatever gifts you may, with premeditation, select, these same you may have and possess through your own judgement and decision […] We have made you a creature neither of heaven nor of earth, neither mortal nor immortal, in order that you may, as the free and proud shaper of your own being, fashion yourself in the form you may prefer.”
Oration on the Dignity of Man – Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

Learning to write

published on 25 01 2012

Gal·la, a girl of 4 years, start learning to write. His father, the reporter Pere Renom, makes monitoring for 7 months and records her progress in identifying syllables, phonemes and graphemes represented in the letters of the alphabet. In the studio, Jaume Vilalta explains the curious history of letter B from the Egyptian hieroglyph which represented concepts, to the Latin alphabet that represents sounds.
