Chipiona celebrates from today and throughout this week from 23 to Sunday 29 August, the XII Rocío Jurado Cultural Week, which this year will commemorate the 78th anniversary of her birth, with a program adapted to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic.
In the Castle of Chipiona, the presentation of the poster announcing the Cultural Week took place, presided over by the mayor, Luis Mario Aparcero Fernández de Retana and other members of the municipal Corporation and representatives of the Cultural Association "RJ La Mas Grande" that presides Gloria Camila (daughter of Ortega Cano and Rocío Jurado) and the Chipiona Business Association (ACITUR).
A VERY SPECIAL PROGRAM FOR THE PANDEMIC
Organized by the Chipiona City Council, it includes the musical setting, throughout this week, of the central and pedestrian street, Issac Peral and the Plaza de Abastos, places where Rocío Jurado's songs will be played. The installation of a "Photocall" in the Plaza de Andalucía. The exhibition of six large digital prints designed by Manuel Barragán in different parts of the historic center of the town and finally the municipal Radio TV will broadcast during the week a special program on the life and legacy of Rocío Jurado, by the Official Chronicler of the Villa, Juan Luis Naval Molero.
ROCIO JURADO ALWAYS TOOK OFF A FEW YEARS
The Civil Registry and especially Rocío's own family confirm it and they never had doubts about Rocío's true age. She always liked to take some years off her age and the gossip magazines that knew it, in their struggle to achieve the real age of the universal chipionera, always published a biography with the wrong dates. Rocío Jurado was actually born on September 18, 1943, so this year, on September 18, 2021, she would be 78 years old. He was not born in 44, 45 or 1946 as has been repeatedly pointed out by biographers who have erred with their dates, even last Saturday, in a program on Canal Sur, talking about Chipiona and the singer, they announced that Rocío Jurado was born in in 1940 and they put her at 81 years old, the data from the Canal Sur biographer are also wrong.
ABC de Sevilla in September 2016, from Chipiona, published a statement by Amador Mohedano, in which he confirmed that the real date of Rocío's birth was September 18, 1943 and it will be 78 years that he would now turn in September.
A PORTRAIT OF ROCIO ON THE FACADE OF HIS HOUSE "MI ABUELA ROCIO" IN CHIPIONA.
Two years ago, the young portrait painter from Malaga, Quique Postigo, was working on Rocío, on the facade of Rocío Jurado's house "My grandmother Rocío" on Avenida de Regla in this Villa. The public did not respect her and they painted over the portrait of the artist that Quique made. Gloria Mohedano, Rocío's sister, has returned to speak with the artist from Malaga, and has invited him to make a larger portrait of Rocío and as you will see, the result has been spectacular. Gloria thanked the painter from Malaga for the nice detail of coming to Chipiona to immortalize the Biggest with his painting.
