Valencia from the Huerta to Leisure

Abstract
On the occasion of the commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the 1957 flood, the MuVIM wanted to offer not only a documented exhibition -La riuà que canvià València-, whose catalogue contains a rigorous, and sometimes novel, narration of the events that took place -including the background- and their immediate consequences. As on other occasions, the MuVIM also organised a series of conferences, where the main objective was to analyse some of the determining processes of the transformation experienced by the city in the fifty years following the flood. This book, the result of those conferences held in November 2007, aims to open up new perspectives for discussion and contrast that will help to define, in the most consensual way possible, sensible and efficient urban policies.
