The women and the gastronomy in the Don Quijote de la Mancha’s book
Mrs Martín was interviewed by the staff of the Bioengineering and Communications Department, both involved in the Agement project (Adult seniors awareness on Active Ageing: connecting cultural heritage with elders empowering). The interview took place at her home, on February 27th 2020, in a room full of books, as she is an expert in Spanish Literature and with 83 years old she gives lectures for citizens and public-private institutions around Extremadura.
Mrs. Martin gets up early in the morning to go swimming, a sport she loves, as well as cooking. When retired from teaching literature, she devoted his time to spread humanistic knowledge to the citizens. She became prominent in the 17th Century Spanish literature and especially in the women condition and the gastronomy treatment described in “Don Quijote de la Mancha”’ s book, by Miguel de Cervantes.
The message she launches to older people is not stay at home, participate in the cultural life and make relationships in the humanistic-scientific field you wish.
The participants on this proposal are The Centro de Cirugía de Mínima Invasión Jesús Usón (CCMIJU) from Spain, the Instituto Politécnico da Guarda (IPG) from Portugal, the Fundación GERON from Romania and the Centro Sportivo Educativo Nazionale (CSEN) from Italy.
