The art of meeting
October 28- November 1, 2011
Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
Barcelona, Catalonia, the Mediterranean, these three realities in one greeted us at the heart of their common history, their art and their culture to permit us to live the call that moves us from the origins and St. Augustine, inspired by his contemplation of the Trinitarian mystery, summed up in these words: “a person is completed by another person...”
First evening: Catalan dances for all
Immersion in history: Dolors Llipart, anthropologist and Amadeu Matosas, Architect.
At the meeting of the Catalan genius: from the barrio Gotico to work of new art, Las Ramblas to the vitality of the Fort Pienc, the Mnac at the Tapies Foundation, discovering the frescoes of the Oratory of Badalona... listening to the heartbeat of things and beings.
