Perform Restoration Actions at Enramadas

536x402x1.JPG.pagespeed.ic.Yt5Ek0PqATA brigade of 14 construction workers belonging to MILART Group (thousand ways of making art), perform restoration work on the Heritage Corridor Las Enramadas, the main shopping street of the city of Santiago de Cuba.
One of those responsible for the task, Benjamin Bujam Manzanares, states that the task is to repair some parts of slabs made through the technique trencadis, placed in several segments of the 1.5 kilometers that make up the pedestrian corridor.
They are going to repair small fragments of 60 slabs trencadis (90 square centimeters each), damaged mostly for offenses committed by some irresponsible people who do the transfer through this area with vehicles and trucks. We are trying to restore them to continue serving its purpose: to beautify this street, "said Bujam Manzanares.
The trencadis technique is a kind of ornamental mosaic made of ceramic fragments, basically tiles, together with mortar, very common in the Catalan modernist architecture.
It was applied rightly in the ambitious transformation to be held in Enramadas from July 9, 2015, when the emblematic street began to "change skin" with the replacement of sidewalks and traditional pavement adocreto and printed pavement project rectory by the Office of the Curator of the City.
