Global Learning Adventures – The Steel Industry in Port Sagunto, Valencia, Spain
Global Learning Adventures in Port Sagunto, Valencia, Spain. Blast Furnace Nº.2 is the only surviving blast furnace tower of the three that were in operation at the height of the steel industry’s activity in Puerto de Sagunto. The structure, which is 64 metres high, was built in 1922 and rebuilt in the 1960s. Operating at 1000 degrees centigrade, it was used to create the steel and iron that was employed in the large construction projects of the 20th-century, such as the building known as the “finca de hierro” in Valencia, the Windsor building in Madrid, the Telefonica building in Seville and the Seat factory in Barcelona. Following its restoration, it received the Europa Nostra 2012 (European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage) Award. Visitors to the furnace tower can discover how it worked and find out about the steel-making industry that gave rise to the Port of Sagunto. (http://www.valenciaturisme.org/en/municipio/sagunto)

User: n/a – Added: 7/1/16
The city of Berlin was divided by a wall between 1961 and 1989. Bricks on the streets show where the wall was located behind Brandenburg Gate. Lessons include Germany after WWII, Cold War, German Democratic Republic, the Fall of Berlin Wall, the Reunification of Germany, and role of Germany in European Union. #GlobalManagement #InternationalBusiness #GlobalStrategies
