On the first day, the session is scheduled for 10 am, and is aimed at the public of the 00st cycle of education. The session on November 1st takes place at 1:15 pm and is open to families and the general public.

In the synopsis it can be read that “Almaradentro” questions the distance between the realities of the interior and the coast, the urban and the rural, the foreign and the home, what is outside and what exists inside.

The research reflects on the standardized vision of different identities and how to merge them, «in order to deconstruct what we understand as separate realities and open new perspectives on the region's fragmented identity, from a contemporary vision».
