The illustrious philosopher María Zambrano and the Foundation that houses her legacy in the Palace of the Marquis of Beniel de Vélez-Málaga continue to be a key piece of the cultural heritage and tourist attraction of the capital of Axarquía.

The mayor of Vélez-Málaga and president of the María Zambrano Foundation, Antonio Moreno Ferrer, explained that on Wednesday morning he held a telematic meeting with the employers of the institution in which the annual budget of 2020 was approved, worth €207,800, which will be used mainly for communication actions to reinforce the promotion of the legacy of the universal philosopher, the organisation of conferences on her figure and the publication of new volumes of her complete works. Moreno Ferrer reported that the image of the Foundation’s website will be renewed, the edition of the magazine ‘Antígona’ will be resumed, with the publication of number 7, and new conferences and congresses will be organised around to the figure of María Zambrano, among other actions. “Much of the meeting focused on the three volumes of Zambrano’s complete works still to be published and on the idea of ​​being able to edit small-format works aimed at schools and all kinds of audiences,” he added.

The veteran councilman and president of the Foundation wanted to thank the great disinterested work carried out by the employers so that the institution to which the philosopher gives its name lives on and is a benchmark in the life and work of the illustrious thinker from Vela. He also recalled the great struggle that María Zambrano carried out to defend with her thought a more just society, of rights and freedoms.
