Next saturday will be inaugurated at 12:00 am the Ninot's Exhibition 2014. With a lot of satire and ironic humor, the falleros artists have portraited the political actuality of Valencia Region. The close of Canal Nou, the public regional television, seems to be the star topic of this year.
Like last years, the beginning of Fallas start with the inauguration of Ninot's Exhibition. This special exposure shows together all of the ninots that are candidates to be saved from the flames. Ninots are characters made from cardboard that form the Fallas monuments. Each fallas commission presents one scene, made of one or several ninots, that considered deserves to be reprieved because of there simbolism or beauty. The ninot who achieve more votes from the visitors will be the ninot indultat (reprieved)
From 8 febrary to 14 March everyone who come to our city could visit the exposhition and vote his favorite ninot. It is in the explanade of Nuevo Centro mall, in the downtown of Valencia.
Last year the reprieved ninot was from Plaza de Na Jordana with 7839 votes.
Since 1934 we celebrate this tradition who shows ninots from each falla of Valencia. This year the visitors can see more than 800 ninots from adults category and childs category. Thanks this Exhibition everyone can figure out how will be the monuments that will be exhibits in the streets in fallas.
This initiative was promoted by the fallero artista Regino Más, who proposed reprieve the ninots by popular voting. The first Ninot’s Exhibition took place in the basements of Mercado Central of Valencia. The first reprieved ninot in the history of Fallas was the piece of Vicente Benedito from Plaza del Mercado commission.
