At the beginning of the semester, in September, in the present serious economic crisis the forecast for enrollment were very pessimistic, but Barcelona’s Basque club, far from being intimidated or to remain idle, decided to take the bull by the horns to maintain the number of students. How? By a special marketing campaign based on the striking images by photographer and graphic designer Igotz Ziarreta. The response was very good and the club has now made those images available to other Basque clubs in case others would like to launch a similar campaign.

The Brotherhood of the Virgin of Arantzazu retrieves historical archives on the 400th anniversary of its foundation
On November 6 commemorative events were celebrated in Lima to mark the four hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Brotherhood of the Virgin of Arantzazu, that has been revived by a group of euskaltzales there after years in oblivion. The anniversary events served to publicize the extensive process of research and retrieval of historical documents of the brotherhood which has already begun to bear fruit. The revived brotherhood is working to digitize these documents and has already reissued texts of the Novena to the Virgin of Arantzazu in Lima in Basque and the statutes of the Brotherhood originally published for the last time in 1851.

A Basque class has been launched in Milan with the help of the ACE Roma and UPTER
Last Thursday Lucia Ezker, a teacher from Pamplona, gave her first Basque class that just began in Milan with the collaboration of the Associazione Culturale Euskara (ACE) and Università Popolare di Roma (UPTER). The class was prompted by a number of euskaltzales in Milan that had had the idea for some time, but thought it was something “utopic,” according Lucia. “When we published the announcement for the class, so many interested people responded that we decided that we had to do it,” she said.
