Congrats, Paco!  I cannot read Spanish but downloaded the PDF anyway.  Carmen Amaya is great!  I have a CD/DVD set of her performances with Sabicas and footages.

Thank you!

  She is not related to the Amaya family but to the Pericet family, big tradition. In the interview she is talking about the show, the creative process, the figure of  Carmen and how everything came to be.

  Akira, that cd/dvd should be very interesting!

Sure!  Some of the same footages can be found on YouTube now.  Like this one.  I''m sure you have already watched it, though.

Carmen Amaya was born on November 13th 1913. I have been in charge of the visual material and today I have learnt that one of the images is used for the front cover of the magazine "Artes Escénicas".
  The 13th issue  :o :o :o

I will add that there are 13 red pieces in this photo (#386): 12 letters and 1 accent  :)

The thread continues to be fascinating!

The image of the motorcycle with 13 all over is unbelievable , as well as the magazine cover

Massimo!

  Bruno that´s a great catch, where is it?

  Thanks Armando. there are more but I only share here the ones with an image. Recently I went to the supermarket and after taking many random items, the amount was a perfect 13.00 euros  :o

I was born in Torino, Italy.

Torino is reputedly one of the vertexes of two triangles connecting six cities, one for black magic and the other for white magic (for those who believe it...)

Anyhow, people in this area are sometimes very superstitious.

Many hotels don't have room 13 and room 17 which are considered as bad luck numbers. They will have room 12-bis and room 16-bis instead...
