Consell de Formentera Archive receives 18th-C. map and 19th-C. marriage contract

foto 2022xii arxiuToday Ana Juan, president of the Consell de Formentera, and José María Ortiz, signed into effect the donation of two additions to the historical archives: a nineteenth-century marriage contract and an eighteenth-century map of the island. President Juan and Raquel Guasch, councillor of heritage, who was at the ceremony as well, expressed gratitude for the gift, which will be added to the Consell de Formentera Archive and illuminate a part of local history.

The two-page notorised contract, dated 31 May 1817, codifies an agreement between Francisca Guasch Juan and Josep Riera. The document details the bride's dowry and sets the terms of inheritance on the death of either spouse and future children. The map of Formentera is the work of 18th-century cartographer Joseph Roux. Both documents are in good condition.

Consell de Formentera revives volunteer language exchange

The Language Advisory Service (SAL) of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce that it has reactivated "Shall we talk?" (Parlam?), a language exchance programme which consists in putting people keen to share their Catalan in contact with people keen to learn it better, gain confidence or simply practice it.

Whether volunteers or beneficiaries, participants need only be 18 or older, have one hour available per week and commit to meeting a minimum of five times. The first encounter is always arranged through the Language Advisory Service and takes place, after the first contact, in a local bar. In fact, the first round at this meeting will be paid for by the SAL.

Raquel Guasch, councillor of language policy, remarked that this initiative is about "creating new spaces for conversation where learners can use Catalan with more confidence".

To register, interested parties should send an email to sal@conselldeformentera.cat and a first meeting will be arranged with the language partner based on availability.

Consell performs upkeep and conservation work at Sa Senieta

foto 2022xi senieta AThe Formentera Office of Heritage is pleased to report on recent work to maintain and preserve the Sa Senieta building.

In late August, part of the flat roof of this listed building was waterproofed, and in recent weeks, crews applied lime mortar in targeted consolidation work and whitewashed facades with lime to protect and preserve the walls.

These operations, part of a technical proposal prepared and led by a specialist in cultural asset restoration, were supervised at all times by the Formentera Office of Heritage. The approximate cost of the operations is €33,000.

Raquel Guasch, councillor of heritage, cast the actions as "necessary to maintaining and preserving Sa Senieta" and "a key step before we can draft plans to convert the former home into the future headquarters of the Museum of Formentera".

Funding is expected to come from the Balearic government, which currently has use rights to develop plans to convert Sa Senieta into one of three future headquarters of the island's museum.
