[ENG-SPN] Arcade / Soportales

in Photographylast year


It could have been these same arcades, the same ones, in which, during that happy state of grace, which is adolescence, I had my first love affairs and also, how could it be otherwise, my first disappointments and failures, in a time in which these, either by intensity or by immaturity, could become synonymous with the end of the world. In reality, and if we are to be fair, it did not stop making sense, if we consider it from the point of view of those fantasy worlds that we internally imagined and that collapsed like a house of cards when the girl whom loved told you that I did not share your feelings, at that crucial moment, in which you had found the necessary courage to confess them, baring your heart, without the intervention of Fernando de Rojas's professional Celestina, who, coincidentally and at that time, was also one of those books that you had to read, yes or yes, in the sometimes tedious subject of Language and Literature.


I imagine, above all, when I go under the scenes that take place under one of them, that all of us, deep down, carry a portico burned into our souls, which, in some way, has become an eternal judge. and part of those first and intense dalliances in Love, which the great Italian poet, Petrarch, glossed over, in the poem 'Triumphs and Failures', which some researchers consider to be the European origins of the Tarot.


Podrían haber sido estos mismos soportales, aquellos mismos, en los que, durante ese feliz estado de gracia, que es la adolescencia, tuve mis primeros escarceos amorosos y también, como no podía ser de otra manera, mis primeras desilusiones y fracasos, en una época en la que éstos, sea por intensidad o sea por inmadurez, podían llegar a ser sinónimo del fin del mundo. En realidad y si hemos de ser justos, no dejaba de tener su sentido, si lo consideramos desde el punto de vista de esos mundos de fantasía, que, interiormente nos imaginábamos y que se derrumbaban como un castillo de naipes cuando la muchacha a la que amabas te decía que no compartía tus sentimientos, en ese momento crucial, en el que habías encontrado el valor necesario para confesarlos, desnudando tu corazón, sin que interviniera la Celestina profesional de Fernando de Rojas, que, casualmente y por aquella época también, era uno de esos libros que tenías que leer, sí o sí, en la, en ocasiones, tediosa asignatura de Lengua y Literatura.


Imagino, sobre todo, cuando paso por debajo de las bambalinas que se desarrollan debajo de alguno de ellos, que todos, en el fondo, llevamos grabado a fuego en nuestra alma un soportal, que, de alguna manera, se ha constituido en eterno juez y parte, de esos primeros e intensos escarceos en el Amor, que el genial poeta italiano, Petrarca, glosó, en el poema ‘Triunfos y Fracasos’, que algunos investigadores consideran como los orígenes europeos del Tarot.
