Nixe III Project (1915-2015)
The Mediterranean 100 years after the death of archduke Lluís Salvador. The past, present and future of the Mediterranean sea.
The institutions of Quely, Lottusse and the RCNPP (Puerto de Pollensa Royal Sailing Club) are all associated with this project. The NIXE III Project is an extensive study of 28 Mediterranean destinations. The 28 destinations match 28 works belonging to the Archduke (the website www.nixe3.com will go live on Thursday 10th).
These locations will be visited by boat over the next five years in order to collect information on site. The final aim is to make a comparative study, predicted for 2015, on the Mediterranean Sea.
The lead researchers are Juan Ramis, Doctor of Social Science and Professor of ESADE, Ramón Llull University, and Helga Schwendinger, whose doctorate specialised specifically on Archduke Luis Salvador. The project also has the support of various collaborators who are specialists on various features of the Archduke's work (architecture, gastronomy, sea life etc).
On June 12th the boat will leave the RCNPP on its first expedition and travel to the Aeolian Islands – Lipari (Italy).
Lottusse and Quely, as associates of the NIXE III Project, will donate approximately 15 euros per nautical mile to Intermón Oxfam and Fesbal (Food Bank) respectively. The boat should travel around 6,000 nautical miles in total.
At the RCNPP, Quely, and Lottusse, we would like you to share in what will undoubtedly be a very special moment in the long history of our institutions.
