THE QUI­TE­ÑO AND HIS BA­RRIO

Nan Magazine - - EL QUITE ÑO Y SU BARRIO / THE QUITEÑO AND HIS BARR -

Qui­to es guar­dia­na de sus tra­di­cio­nes, y re­cep­tácu­lo de és­tas son sus ba­rrios: co­lec­ti­vi­da­des que re­su­ci­tan el pa­sa­do con la vi­da mis­ma, la vi­da de to­dos los días. Es una re­la­ción de dos: los ba­rrios de Qui­to son te­so­ros de la ciu­dad, y Qui­to es el te­so­ro pre­cia­do de sus ba­rrios. Man­tie­nen vi­va la lum­bre de su es­pí­ri­tu com­par­ti­do.

Qui­to is the guar­dian of its own tra­di­tions, and the re­cep­ta­cle of the­se are its ba­rrios (neigh­bor­hoods): com­mu­ni­ties which keep the past ali­ve th­rough or­di­nary, every­day li­fe. It is a true re­la­tions­hip: the ca­pi­tal’s neigh­bor­hoods are Qui­to’s treasures, and Qui­to is the neigh­bor­hoods’ pre­cious trea­su­re. Both sus­tain the fla­me of their sha­red spi­rit.

Faus­to Sa­li­nas, za­pa­te­ro y ve­la­dor de la se­gu­ri­dad de su que­ri­do San Blas / Faus­to Sa­li­nas, shoe­ma­ker and sa­fety su­per­vi­sor of his lo­ved San Blas.
