By on 13 September, 2023

The cover of the April Fair in Seville 2024 will pay tribute to the Mudéjar Pavilion located in the María Luisa Park.

The Mudejar Pavilion, designed by renowned architect Aníbal González in 1914, It is currently the home of the Museum of Popular Arts and Customs, and its elegant regionalist façade has served as inspiration for this exceptional cover.

The ephemeral work of art that will welcome visitors at the next April Fair has been created by the Italian architect Davide Gambini, that has managed to capture the essence of Sevillian regionalism that characterizes the Mudéjar Pavilion and its surroundings, formed by the Plaza de América, the Archaeological Museum and the Royal Pavilion.

The presentation of this magnificent cover took place in the Colón Hall of the Seville City Council, where Mayor José Luis Sanz emphasized the importance of this celebration, which is approaching its bicentennial and plays a vital role in the city's daily life. Sanz described the cover as a “wonderful ephemeral installation” which acts as the gateway to the fairgrounds, only one in the world, and that this year it is integrated into the exhibition of the 29, a celebration that will soon reach its centenary.

The Mayor also highlighted the historical value of the Mudejar Pavilion in the history of Seville, highlighting it as a “icon of Sevillian architecture and Museum of Popular Arts and Customs since 1973”. This building, designed by Aníbal González, It is located in a unique way in the Plaza de América next to the Royal Pavilion, the Paseo de las Delicias and the Archaeological Museum. Sanz stressed the need to preserve this architectural heritage and recalled that the Mudéjar Pavilion has been a witness to international events and the scene of the daily life of Sevillians over the years..

Sanz expressed his gratitude to the Italian architect Davide Gambini for exceptionally capturing this emblematic place in Seville on the cover of the Fair. Also, praised the efforts of the Major Festivals delegation in organizing the Fair of 2024, ensuring that this edition promises to be an unforgettable experience for all Sevillians and visitors.

Regarding the cover design, Davide Gambini explained his desire to do it immediately recognizable as a representation of the Mudejar Pavilion, focusing your attention on the façade that faces the Plaza de América, the most iconic part of the museum. Gambini has managed to capture the rich ornamentation and vibrant colors that characterize this Mudejar façade, adapting them to fit perfectly into the joyful spirit of the April Fair.

The cover is made up of two side viewing towers with hipped roofs and a central body divided into two levels. On the lower level, there are three arches, the central one being the largest and sporting the city's motto, flanked by two smaller side arches. The upper level features three central arches surrounded by decorative details that culminate in a hipped roof.. Also, Arches inspired by the museum's side galleries have been added to give it a lighter and more colorful appearance.

Gambini chose to keep the diversity of colors that characterizes the building, replacing the darker tones of the brick with brighter colors. Its objective was to create a representative and colorful image that reflected the regionalist architecture of Seville and that would be liked by the people of Seville., the true protagonists of the April Fair.

Mayor José Luis Sanz announced that, despite this exciting news, the model of the April Fair 2024 It will remain the same as in previous editions, but a consultation will be carried out with the people of Seville to evaluate possible changes in future editions. The Seville April Fair remains an iconic event that celebrates the city's rich culture and tradition, and the new cover, inspired by the Mudejar Pavilion, promises to be a jewel in its long history of splendor and joy.
