Farewell to the 29-meter Aztec pyramid: Nacho Cano now plans to take his controversial festival to Ifema

New script twist. On September 16, the residents of the Hortaleza district of the capital appeared on all the news and newspapers in Spain. Stunned, they did not believe the news advanced by the neighborhood newspaper Perió, which had the following headline: ‘An Aztec pyramid with theater and parking: this is Nacho Cano’s project in Hortaleza’.

Urban Planning sources assured then that it was a provisional use authorization for a maximum of four years, as established by law. The producer, they explained, would have to pay a fee to the City Council of the capital, which is the owner of the plot, of 450,000 euros per year. “After four years the authorization will end and it will be delivered again to the City Council in the same conditions in which the authorization was produced,” they stressed.

Aztec Empire

The Aztec Empire was one of the great pre-Columbian civilizations in the Americas. It began in the early 13th century, when a group of semi-nomadic people migrated from present-day northern Mexico to the center of Mesoamerica, where they established a new home. These were the ancestors of the Aztec. In the space of less than three centuries, the Aztec people would build an empire and civilization that rivalled those in Europe, including a capital city that was bigger than many European cities. But like many pre-Columbian civilizations in the Americas, the Aztec Empire fell after the arrival of Europeans, who destroyed the great civilization and many of its people so that they could colonize its territory.
