Salvador Dali Square in the centre of Madrid was designed in 1984 by the famous Catalonian artist and was named after him. It is a complex of great architectural importance. There is a granitic dolmen and a statue of a human creature on a cubic pedestal. The name of Dali’s beloved wife- Gala- is written on the pedestal. There is a large drawing on the pavement of the Salvador Dali Square- a circle around the monuments, which represents the Sun and its beams that light up the whole square. Salvador Dali Square is Salvador Dali’s last work and the only artwork of its kind in the world. The history of the architectonic complex in Madrid is truly intriguing. The Madrid Council decided to reconstruct the Salvador Dali Square in 2002. The reconstruction works demanded the demolition of the art complex. However, an association of inhabitants of the G. Goya’s quarter- art critics, experts in Dali’s work and other cultural personalities, was founded. This association made a great effort in the oncoming months to save and promote this masterpiece under the open sky. In the end, it was decided that the art complex will remain at the Salvador Dali Square. Unfortunately, the work has been saved only partially. The pavement with the Sun beams and its lighting has been changed and the dolmen was made shorter due to the new pavement.
