This project counts with three fundamental pillars: To promote Gran Canaria as a touristic destination through literatura, to promote environmental heritage and to revive the editorial sector on every part of the process, from the initial idea to the final print.

As Alexis Ravelo says (the coordinator of every detail during this editorial process) “Is an intimate trip and collective at the same time. A piece of art from 10 different authors from different generations and aesthetics orientations which have chosen to tell the story of the island from many aspects of reality far away from the informatic applications, because these are completely incapable of suffering, enjoying, loving or be loved, to perdure a feeling in powerful words or a picture to be gifted to the world”.
