They will be the writer Màrius Serra –presented at Plaça Major because he later donated a lecture–, the Montblanc cartoonist Joan Vizcarra, and the journalists Txe Arana and Candela Figueras –also from Montblanc–.
Serra li is going to say that the request had to have «plantejament, nus i desenllaç». I així he ho va fer. She will remember how she has seen Sant Jordi for the longest of years, since she was petita that her peers had to buy a book of hers for five years, when she was going to write her first. One of the councils that she is going to donate was that she lives both “temps” to get to know the town, the landscape and that gaudís de l’aire pur.

Mònica Usort delivered a special hydrometer. Instead of having the typical frare, she had the face of the Sant Jordi dragon. “He is like a little meteorologist”, she affirmed. He teas an ore of hair that, depending on whether it grows or grows long, is sap, with 24 hours of anticipation, if he plourà, farà sun or wind, etc. The act ended with the ball of Banderes, Dúcties, Faranduleres, Donzelles and finally dels nobles.
