The Community declares Well Cataloged for its cultural relevance the Fuente Álamo bowling school (24/08/2017)

The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Environment has declared the Well-being of an intangible character, due to its cultural relevance, the Fuente Álamo bowling school, in order to guarantee its preservation and dissemination.

The official resolution has already been published in the Official Gazette of the Region of Murcia (BORM).

The statement is based on the relevance of the bowling school established in Fuente Álamo since the late nineteenth century, and continues to this day.

From Pedro Leandro Hernández, Bolero teacher of Fuente Álamo, different modalities of the bowling school were extended by the Region, giving rise to a repertoire integrated by simple malagueñas, sevillanas bowls of three, cartageneras, malagueñas of the vineyard, jota bowling, Bolero, double malagueña, La Mancha and bullfighters.

The Director General of Cultural Heritage, Juan Antonio Lorca, stated that "as evidenced by documentation from the Ministry of Culture, the school has a significant presence in the Region of Murcia throughout history that justifies His declaration as a Cataloged Good. "

Lorca added that "in this way, this intangible good of ethnographic value of the Region is given adequate protection as a way to ensure its protection, conservation, study and revaluation, to ensure its transmission to future generations."

According to the resolution, the Fuente Álamo bowling school has been studied by researchers and ethnologists such as Manuel Sánchez Martínez, who has compiled the history of the family of Bolero masters established in Fuente Álamo at least from the middle of the XIX century.

The Leandro have been teaching their dances on a walking tour through many points in the Region of Murcia for several generations.

The brothers Mariano Leandro Legaz (1928-2012) and Anastasio Leandro Legaz (1940-2014) were the last Bolero masters who, as a youngster and following their parents, lived from the teaching of dance towards the end of the 40's. His part, Pedro Leandro Baños (1930), cousin of the previous ones, also learned the trade since childhood and was the one who reactivated the Fuente Álamo Cuadrilla and everything related to the Bolero dance in the locality, where he formed a school in the 80's Of the past century that continues at present in the hands of his nephew, Pedro José Leandro Navarro.

Since the bowling school is not an exclusive or original manifestation of the Region of Murcia, but shares the great majority of its features with this manifestation in a large part of the national territory, it is considered that the circumstances of exceptionality or singularity that do not exist Advise its cataloging as a Property of Cultural Interest.

Nevertheless, its relevance in the configuration of the regional folkloric collection does advise to establish the cataloging figure adequate to guarantee its recognition, diffusion and conservation, reason why it is a record of the declaration as a Cataloged Good because of its cultural relevance.
