Throughout La noche en blanco, we will celebrate the centennial of Gran Vía. To commemorate the feast day of San Isidro, what is probably the prettiest street in Madrid will be carpeted in blue. That gigantic carpet has been cleaned, trimmed and manipulated to turn it into thousands of “pitch-in rubbish bins”, a multipurpose item (we suggest, for example, magazine rack, planter, clothing basket, etc.). To get one, all you have to do it throw a paper ball into one, the classic office game.
