Making of:

WHY CURRO?

'Curro, 25' is inspired by the personality of CURRO, the mascot of the 1992 Universal Exposition of Seville, Spain: it is cheerful, participative and for all ages and audiences.

The mascot's creator, Heinz Edelmann, is recognized primarily for being the artistic director and character designer of the film Yellow Submarine, where The Beatles appeared in a psychedelic and lively vision.
