Lecture presented by José Miguel de la Viuda Sainz, aeronautical engineer and aviation enthusiast, author of the book “Hergé, Tintin and the Planes”.
Hergé, Tintin’s father, was a fan of airplanes. Passionate to such an extent that planes in some cases become protagonists of Tintin’s adventures. This passion and Hergé’s obsession with detail make Tintin an exceptional witness to the evolution of aircraft. Between the first and last album, aviation will move from the canvas to the titanium and from the piston engine to the jet engine. An excuse to reread them with another look.
On this occasion, a bookstore will be present to offer you the book “Hergé, Tintin and the planes” and will set up a signing session ofMr.José Miguel de la Viuda Sainzfor those who wish.
Free admission in the limit of available seats.
