PROFILE OF THE MONTH (PREVIOUS)
Félix Moracho is an easy-going, articulate man, who speaks knowledgably and swears at just the right moment in the conversation. He invited me into his office for a short presentation and in the end my recorder showed an interesting chat lasting an hour and 50 minutes. On finishing, he handed over the CDs by the latest guests at the Huercasa Country Festival: The Mavericks, Sam Outlaw, Ryan Bingham and Whitney Rose.
Like a fish in water
Fabio Zoboli was born 48 years ago in Módena, but he lives in Cesena, a city on the Adriatic coast. This allows him to enjoy his hobbies, water sports: surf ski, canoeing or standup paddleboarding. My interviewee has the particular bearing of an Italian. That little something which turns them into elegant men with just […]
Toni García, the will to succeed
Toni (his real name is Jesús Antonio) is married to Pepa, who is also an executive at Consum. Born in Cuenca 46 years ago, his feeling of being a Valencian runs so deep that, following his land’s tradition, he is in charge of cooking the paella on Sundays. And if that is not enough, he […]
Laurence Maillard: living with passion

Laurence was born 57 years ago in […]
Enrique Guío: hitting the bull’s eye
Enrique Guío is 43 years old and was born in Madrid. After over ten years of being a biker, he left his Kawasaki behind and took up a new hobby, archery, which he has been practising for over three years now. A film-lover, he says he likes films that are not too intellectual and confesses that he went to see ‘Star Wars’ the day after its premiere.
José Gandía, the magnetism of age
José Gandía was born in Tavernes de Valldigna, Valencia, in 1945. He is an unusual Valencian because, due to the political circumstances, he has never lived in his homeland. His childhood is linked to memories in the French Protectorate of Morocco and Marseilles, places where his family lived. He spent his teenage years studying in […]
Josep Presseguer, the passionate historian
Lawyer and history-lover, Josep Presseguer Gené, was born in Bellpuig (Lerida) in 1966. He met his wife at the Law Faculty and they have two teenagers. He is a very eloquent man, although at times his children say he rabbits on too much. From a Republican family on both sides, he is a committed Europhile. […]
Raúl Calleja, with music running through his veins
Being born in a town such as Aranda de Duero (Burgos) gives people character; let’s call it a gourmet character. Raúl Calleja confesses to be a lover of good food and of the lamb reared in the area, although his tastes go way beyond wood-burning ovens: for our appointment he chose the trendiest Asian restaurant […]
