Ninot Exhibition: art in papier mâché.As the days go by, we can see a small sample of the Fallas monuments, some of which are exquisite: creations that blend art, satire and social criticism in large polystyrene, wood and papier mâché structures. Each Fallas committee chooses a "ninot" (puppet) for their falla to display from early February to 15th March in the exhibition which is held on the esplanade of the Nuevo Centro shopping centre (Avenida Pio XII, 2). From this collection, by popular vote, one adult ninot and one children's ninot are pardoned; both are saved from the flames and will become part of the Museo Fallero (Monteolivete, 4). In addition to all these ninots, the centre shows images of the best fallas from each year. It is open Monday to Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and tickets cost 2 euros; Sundays and holidays (from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) admission is free.
Throughout the preceding week, there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy a paella callejera. On day 7, for example, there are two options: at noon, at the falla of Vicente Sancho-Tello Chile; and, at night, at the falla of Archduke Charles-Chiva. The registration fee, for those without fallas, is 5 euros. Here a magical phenomenon occurs: the rice always turns out well, no matter how huge the dish.
