Randa dedicates magazine's 79th issue to Formentera

Randa2Randa, a magazine published by Abadia de Montserrat and supported by the Formentera Council, has dedicated its 79th issue to the island of Formentera.

The issue, for which the twice-yearly magazine dedicated its 200 pages of content to Formentera, includes articles by Artur Parron about the communist party's conference on Formentera in 1976 —the third of its kind in the islands— and Ángel Navarro's text about Formentera's hard-fought autonomy as both a geographical area and a public authority.

In the current issue there is also an article by Esperança Marí Mayans on recent arrivals to the island and what it means to incorporate in a new society. Isidor Torres Cardona writes about the gestation of “La COP de Formentera”; Jaume Escandell Guasch looks at the intangible heritage of the Formentera and Eivissa Christmas choirs known as caramelles; Maria del Mar Joan i Marí teams up with Bernat Joan i Marí for an essay on generational transmission and attitudes towards language among Formentera's young people; and Marina Mayans Marí contributes understanding about the medicinal uses of plants and the ethnobotany of Formentera.
