Artistic avant-garde

The pictorial work of Remedios Varo (Anglès, Girona, 1908 – Mexico City, 1963), the subject of the Heritage section in this issue of La Fundación, conveys the presence of a precise revelation, whose broad range of suggestions lies hidden beneath a layer of mystery. What do her pictures mean? What is her enigmatic visual universe telling us? For the first time, this book provides us with the five keys that open the secret box of this painter’s magical world: the esoteric key, the Surrealist key, the literary key, the key to the dream world and the key to the architectural world.

Cinco llaves del mundo secreto de Remedios Varo Various authors. Editorial Atalanta, 2015. 215 pages.

The Documentation Center launches its website in English and Portuguese

The Fundación MAPFRE Documentation Center, which works daily in the search for current and relevant information for the insurance industry in a number of different languages, has recently translated its website into English and Portuguese, which together with Spanish are MAPFRE’s official languages. It is free and not only specializes in insurance, but also in risk management, safety and health promotion. The site offers visitors the possibility of consulting all the publications produced by Fundación MAPFRE.

Innovate to educate

The collection of literature for children and young people from Fundación MAPFRE’s Prevention and Road Safety Area is designed to foster the transmission of knowledge and values through reading, thus initiating boys and girls in the concepts of prevention and road safety. This year we have incorporated new interactive reading material with augmented reality images, book trailers and audiobooks. Associated with these is a series of activity booklets, the perfect complement to be able to exercise all the concepts learned with the reading material.

These contents are adapted to each educational stage, for children aged 3 to 16: nursery, elementary, junior and senior high school. All these materials are free and are available at:
