Zu Funchals Türen/About Funchal’s doors/In merito alle porte di Funchal

Als wir durch die Altstadt von Funchal (Madeira) schlenderten hat man uns gesagt, dass Künstler nach dem schrecklichen Unwetter von 2010 begonnen haben die Türen zu bemalen oder zubeschmücken, um die stark mitgenommenen Häuser wieder zu verschönern und die Stadt zu beleben.

Hier ist ein Link zum Tagesschaubeitrag auf DRS vom 20.02.2013 zu besagtem Unwetter/

Da mich diese eindrücklichen Arbeiten, die in kürzerster Zeit gemacht wurden, begeistert haben, möchte ich hier einige davon vorstellen. Sie haben oft mit dem Leben auf der Insel zu tun.

Gib einem Menschen einen Fisch und er hat für einen Tag zu essen, zeig ihm, wie er einen Fisch fangen kann und er hat ein Leben lang zu essen./Se dai ad un uomo un pesce, egli ha da mangiare per un giorno, se invece gli fai vedere come si pesca egli ha da mangiare per una vita.(Foto M.Ramsauer)

As we were strolling across the old town of Funchal, the capital city of Madeira Island, we were told that after the terrible flooding in 2010 artists hae started to paint and ornament doors in order to embellish the battered houses and to give life back to the city. This impressive artistic works, open to everybody, which have been executed within a short time, have really  got under my skin, I would like to present some of them. They are often in connection with the daily life of the citizens.

Dunbar sagte noch einmal zu Clevinger. “So lang.” Er schnippte mit den Fingern.” Vor einer Sekunde hast du mit Lungen voller Luft die Universität begonnen. Heute bist du ein alter Mann.”
