The Seville Fair.pptx

  3. 3. On August 25, 1846, two businessmen settledin the city, Narciso Bonaplata (Catalan) and José María de Ybarra (Basque), drafted a proposal that they took to the Municipal Council asking them to authorize them on April 19, 20 and 21 to hold an annual fair
  4. 4. It was inaugurated on April 18, 1847 located in the Prado San Sebastián. In those times, this space was on the outskirts of the city, although today it is one of the most central places in the capital, close to the Tobacco Factory, now the University of Seville.
  5. 5. The fair had a total of 19 booths and the success obtained was so great that a few years later, in 1850, it was necessary to separate what was the cattle merchandise and the space for entertainment. The number of head of cattle in 1850 was 60,000. Licenses were also issued for 15 donut stalls, 34 nougat and hazelnut stalls, and 93 for taverns and water. In 1864 the first fireworks are launched and in 1870 the fair was exteded for two more days.
  6. 6. The fair came to coexist until 1868 with the so- called Gate of San Fernando of the old wall.
  7. 7. In 1896, the so-called Footbridge was located in the area, an iron structure, which served as a flyover over the fairgrounds. It had four access stairs and a central kiosk at their confluence that was adorned with white light globes during the days the feast lasted. ….as a souvenir from the catwalkan entrance gate to the Fair began to be installed annually.
  8. 8. For the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, the Spainish Square was also placed the monument to Cid Campeador, Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar

  10. 10. The fair was held for a while in the Charco de la Pava, currently used as the Fair's car parks, the biggest problem being that it is a flood zone. The Fair is now held in the Park de la Vega de Triana in 2010.
  11. 11. The Grand Entrance Gate
  12. 12. Each year the Entrance Gate is dedicated to some important event, monument or building in the city, and can reach a height of nearly 50 m with arches and towers, with a certain touch of regionalist architecture, and can be seen both day and night.
  13. 13. The night When night falls, the streets of the Real are lit up with Venetian lanterns and light bulb decorations. The fairground attractions have their own lighting.At night there are no horses or carriages.The booths also serve food and it is common to have dinner, tapas and drink until late at night. The food stalls also remain open, which also usually sell churros with chocolate at dawn.Every day of the fair the lights go out at 3 in the morning, except on Saturday, when they remain until 6, and on Sunday, when they are turned off at twelve at night, coinciding with the fireworks show.
  14. 14. The total number of bulbs that illuminate the fair amounts to approximately 350,000 made up of Venetian lanterns in green, white and red colors.
  15. 15. The Fair was later extended to in the neighborhood of Los Remedios, an almost rectangular area with a measure of 1.5 km by 600 m, with the name of "Real de la Feria", with streets that were baptized with names of bullfighters of all the seasons and adorned with lanterns.
  16. 16. View over the Triana neighborhood towards the center of Seville
  17. 17. THE HOUSES - In the early days of the fair, as it was related to the sale of cattle, what was described as a house was the equivalent of a stable. In the one corresponding to the year 1849, the City Council set up the first booth as the term is now understood. Its style was that of a tent, with the intention of monitoring and maintaining public order, which changed shortly due to the festive atmosphere that existed there.
  18. 18. In 1850 other booths were placed with various elements of leisure, food and other utilities.

Most of the booths only have one module, although if there is more than one, several covers could be placed or one that fits all of them. The tarpaulins of the booth must be listed in red and white or green and white.
  21. 21. Families and some institutions wanted to enjoy more time in this space, which caused the number of booths to increase, each one adorning it as they pleased, leaving everything very picturesque, acquiring Moorish, circular, military forms...
  22. 22. There are about 1040 booths in the Fair. The booths usually have a board for those who dance sevillanas. The ownership of the booth is controlled by municipal license.

From the very beginnning, the public moved to the Fair in buggies to negotiate over cattle.
  26. 26. Since 1983 in the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza, a Carriage Exhibition is held, organized by the Royal Andalusian Carriage Club since 1984, where carriages of all times, from the Andalusian aristocracy and bourgeoisie, are exhibited.
  27. 27. Men's fashion The horsemen are dressed in the traditional short suit and the wide- brimmed hat typical of Lower Andalusia with a lower crown and wider brim than those of the Cordovan hat. It was also a field work outfit and therefore the one used to deal, sell and buy.
