    La Roca Village hosts the first exhibition ever put together in Spain dedicated to the "regenerative" Cracking Art collective. 40 large-format multicoloured sculptures of animals featurng snails, rabbits, swallows and frogs will be taking over the Village to the delight its visitors. Cracking Art, founded in Italy in 1993 aims to radically change the future of art, with its strong environmental and social commitment, that uses a revolutionary approach to plastic, a material chosen for its malleable properties that can be melted and reused again and again, a medium to investigate the close relationship between nature and artificial reality. It has already carried out more than 400 artistic invasions around the world (Bangkok, Moscow, Sydney, Shanghai, Tel Aviv, New York, Paris, Brussels or Milan, among other cities).

    Under the frame of the campaign Art meets Fashion Las Rozas Village also includes an installation by the artist Ernesto Artillo inspired by the values and imaginary of some of the most iconic brand names with shops at the Village that will be exhibited in their display windows. These coexist with a small preview of The Fashion Route of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which shows reproductions of some of the works of its permanent collection that illustrate the evolution of fashion through history.
