Fallas 2010: Exposición – 9th Place

A free-fall in the final standings for Exposición-Mícer Mascó, who finished in 4th place last year, and 3rd in 2008. And what can you say… they didn’t deserve much better than 9th, with a monument lacking in humor and ripe in sentimentality.

“We can give you confidence, but…” was the motto, and the figures were concentrated on abuses of confidence. The monument featured two over-stressed grandparents and a number of demanding, mischievous children — taking advantage of them.

Although the main monument didn’t fare so well with the judges, the Infantil did, and took home the top prize. A lot of the ninots were really fun, and Exposición was honored to have the one ninot which is saved from a fiery death by the public this year. So it was far from a total wash for the commission.
