After a two-year hiatus made mandatory by the pandemic, Madrid Fusion 2022 outdid itself, breaking its previous records on participation, public attendees, and accredited journalists.

You simply can’t give these a miss! Not when they cause fresh breezes from exotic lands to blow into the scalding heat of Madrid summer! We are referring to the two garden exhibitions courtesy of Casa Asia: THE BLACK ZEN GARDEN and THE LAUGHTER OF THE FLOWERS.
On 17 December 2021, the Madrid Symphony Orchestra is offering a very special solidarity concert for the victims of the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the island of La Palma, the Canary Islands archipelago. Here's your chance to show your concern for the people of La Palma. Be at the concert!
“Please don’t bury my bananas” is the collective prayer of the planters on La Palma where the Cumbre Vieja volcano is still spewing molten lava that devours houses, schools and banana fields as it plows its sinister way down to the Atlantic. It isn’t just that the lava buries everything that gets in its way. The ashes not only settle on the fruit but on whole plants and kill them off. Who can foretell what measly number of bananas would be harvested now, in view of the eruption? And to think that over 10,000 of the island’s 85,000 population depend on banana employment!
The Cumbre Vieja volcano in La Palma, one of the most active volcanos in Spain's Canary Islands, has been erupting since 19 September 2021. By 20 September around two hundred houses have been destroyed by the lava. The alert remains at the highest level—red. The Bishop of Tenerife has celebrated a Mass at the Sanctuary of Nuestra Señora de las Nieves in La Palma to pray for the end of the eruption.
