Tras Julia | Julia the University Student, Madrid

Julia the University Student, Madrid

This innocuous statue on the Calle de Pez, outside the Palacio Bauer, is called Julia. Antonio Santin, the artist, has said that “After Julia” is a tribute to the Old University of Madrid.

Others think it should be called Concepción, since Concepción Arenal was the 19th century heroine who disguised herself as a man in order to study in the Central University of Madrid.
