I have found with similar attitudes in other places of my vital vicissitudes. I have also known the contrary: those of an exclusionary and excessive ethnocentrism which leads to underestimate what comes beyond hypothetical and unrealistic borders. By conviction, I prefer people full of uncertainties that certainties, I identify more with those who admire the alien that with those who overestimate the own. This is therefore another reason to feel at ease among Valencians. Why, I repeat, Valencia doesn’t have to be place of passage to any other party, but a magnificent destination. Few communities as ours I linguistically apropie it since the first day can boast of both equilibrium and much complementarity: in the landscape, the climate, the economy, culture community has the best beaches in Spain, protected natural spaces, in mountainous regions with continental climate its productive structure is dealt with harmony among the three sectors, ranging from traditional agriculture to a highly developed service sector.

There is a territorial balance unthinkable in other Spanish regions, with comparable equipment from North to South in infrastructures, industrial equipment, cultural investments there is a reasonable combination between tradition and modernity that can be exemplified, on the one hand, in the exhibitions of the religious heritage of the Luz de las Imagenes, and, on the other hand, in the risky and innovative biennial of Valencia. I can criticize, at this point, claiming that I have the enthusiasm of the neophyte and up to the fanaticism of the convert. He is arguira, even, that we don’t live in the best of all possible worlds, as it said Leibnitz, and that we have still a lot to improve. Of course. But let me have wanted to draw an impression that is shared by many with that modest pair of thick brush strokes foreigners that you have made Valencia, to conscience, our current homeland of adoption.
