The Portuguese neurologist António Damásio won the Prize Prince of Asturias of Scientific and Technical Investigation. Damásio, of 61 years old, is one of the most well-known Portuguese investigators, specialized in the study of the neurology of emotions and cerebral cartography.

His work has been centred in the investigation of decisive problems in the basic neuroscience, and also on diseases like Parkinson and Alzheimer.

According to the jury, Damásio is recognized as one of the most important scientists, "whose contribution is essential for the knowledge of the mechanisms of the brain" and whose divulging work facilitates "the access of ample branches of society to one better understanding of the human conduct". All these ingredients make possible that the work of Damásio enjoys "an extraordinary prestige among the international scientific community", and the best-seller Décartes' Error is world-wide considered a fundamental text in this area of studies.


This is the fifth award already announced to the fifth edition of the Prizes Prince of Asturias that will take place in October. Until now, there were announced the names of Simone Veil (International Cooperation), the great European cultural institutes (Communication and Humanities), Nélida Piñon (Letters), Giovanni Sartori (Social Sciences) and António Damásio (Scientific and Technical Investigation).

The Princes of Asturias celebrated yesterday the Annual Meeting of the Patronage of the Prince of Asturias’ Foundation, on its XXV anniversary.

Princess Letizia, who already shines her pregnancy, was dressed in a cream suit with fuchsia shoes and her glowing appearance raised more than an expression of congratulations, from the assistants.

It is the second time that the princess attends this event, whose first appearance took place just one year ago. Once surpassed the normal annoyances of the first trimester, Doña Letizia still accompanies her husband to the acts he presides over, as the future sovereign, although she’s already entered in the fourth pregnancy month. She surely did not want to miss these prizes, since they are granted in Asturias, the Land where Doña Letizia was born, and whose affection to the Royal Family was already expressed in so many different occasions.

For the second time since the wedding of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia, the Princes of Asturias received, yesterday at the palace of El Pardo, the members of the patronages of the Prince of Asturias’ Foundation, who presented the Prince with a detailed report of the work developed during the last year, as well as the financial and patrimonial situation of the Foundation.

The Young Choir of the Prince of Asturias Foundation closed the act, performing a series on Asturian songs, like «Has de venir a verme», «Con tomillu y romeru», «Soy de Verdiciu», «Noche de San Juan en Asturias» or «Chalaneru», under the direction ofJosé Ángel Émbil, with adjustments of Fernando López Blanco.

The Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer accepted the order to project the Museum and Cultural Centre of the Prizes Prince of Asturias.

Niemeyer, of 97 years old, is one of the most prominent figures of the modern architecture, and he considered the projec to be an honour, specially because it will be his first work in Spain.

The construction of the Museum and Cultural Centre of the Prizes Prince of Asturias is planned within the celebrations of the XXV anniversary of these awards, which are now among the most important in the world.
The General responsible for the commission in charge of the XXV Anniversary celebrations, Natalio Grueso, said to EFE that Niemeyer was chosen because of his world-wide importance and because he is one of the three architects who were awarded with the Prince of Asturias' award.

According to the general commissioner, the architects who work with Niemeyer will travel to Asturias during the next couple of weeks, to choose the place where the Museum and Cultural Centre shall be constructed.

Famous for the governmental palaces of Brasilia (the Brazilian capital), Niemeyer have made works in several parts of the world. In 1947, along with LeCorbusier, he formed part of the team that projected the headquarters of the United Nations in New York.

The commemorations of the XXV anniversary since the creation of the Prizes Prince of Asturias will extend throughout 2005, until October of the next year. Before the anniversary, UNESCO, which is supporting the commemorations, has already decided to recognize 'the exceptional contribution of the Prizes Prince of Asturias to the Cultural Patrimony of the Humankind'.

From La Nueva España:

Models of Paris

Twenty-one "meninas" created by the painter and Valencian escultor Manolo Valdés "walk" their bronze these days by the Garden du Palais Royal (Real Palace) of Paris. In October, that same exhibition of monumental figures will be in the stroll of the Poplars and the seat of the Escandalera, of the hand of Cajastur, that celebrates thus his 125.º anniversary and contributes, at the same time, to the commemorative acts of the 25 years of the Foundation Prince of Asturias. It is predicted that the sample of Oviedo inaugurates Princes de Asturias.
