The death occurred a few days before the 2020 Fallas begin.
The president of the Falles d’Oliva Federation, Vicente Pérez Bernabeu, died suddenly last Friday morning at 57. The whole city is saddened, since it is a well-known person, especially for his fallero role in this city of the Costa Blanca, but also for being a manager of a citrus company.
Vicente Pérez Bernabeu, who belonged to the Barri de Sant Francesc commission, had been leading the Falles d’Oliva Federation for several years. He assumed the position when the economic shortage forced them to eliminate the figure of the Fallera Mayor. The last act he presided was last Thursday, when the Falles d’Oliva Federation presented the llibret that the entity has published for this year.
This death has occurred just a few days before the 2020 Fallas officially begin. The Councillor for Parties, Yolanda Navarro, has declared herself in shock. Since the news has been known, condolences have not stopped.
