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

Masters of wood

published on 16 02 2016

The reporter Pere Renom knows a guitar maker and attends an authentication of a guitar theoretically built in 1867 in Sevilla by a man named Antonio de Torres, the equivalent of Stradivarius in violins. Renom also participates in the construction of a wooden house, greener and quicker to make than conventional homes. And he visits the only workshop of the world where wood is used to make a genuinely Catalan boat: beach catamaran. In addition, it is explained the art of drying wood, and the saw a tool more similar to an abrasive file than to a knife.
Speakers Joan Pellisa guitar maker, Isidre Tebar and Richard Balboa from House Habitat and Rafel Figuerola from Club Beach Catamaran Barcelona.
