Madrid is already in the Fiestas de San Isidro, after Antonio Resines officially announced the start of the festivities with the traditional proclamation from the balcony of the Plaza de la Villa. Together with the mayor and part of the municipal corporation, the actor assured that “living in Madrid is a pleasure and luxury”, and called on the people of Madrid to “celebrate the holidays of San Isidro in style”, enjoying them “with head and caution”, because “these are the days to throw the house out the window, collect the Marimorena and be cooler than the eight.
The 67-year-old Cantabrian actor listed the places in Madrid that have marked his personal and professional life and stressed that “without a doubt, the best thing that Madrid has to offer is the people of Madrid: cats, cats of us, who, like me, come from childhood or those who live here for a long time. All of you who make this city the most sociable and generous, and those of you who cooperate so that no one feels like a stranger, even if he has just arrived. He also had words of recognition for public health work in the region after being in intensive care for more than a month due to the coronavirus: “I take this opportunity to ask for a round of applause for public health.”
Antonio Resines, renowned film, theater and television actor, was President of the Spanish Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (2015–2016) and recipient of the Goya Award in 1997 for Best Actor in La Buena’s Star.
The day was animated by four giants from the Comparsa de Gigantes y Cabezudos de Madrid, restored between 2018 and 2020: Julián “El de la Verbena”, Maripepa, Manolita Malasaña and Mayor Móstoles.
