    Education in freedom Barcelona and the school 19081979

    The exhibition begins in 1908, when Barcelona City Council approved the Extraordinary Budget for Culture, a plan for the comprehensive reform of education in the city, emphasizing education that was of high quality, public, free, in Catalan, secular, and with both boys and girls sharing the classrooms.

    Feeding Barcelona City provisioning and health

Feeding the population has always been a major concern of municipal governments and Barcelona has been no exception. The exhibition traces the beginnings of this issue, with the constitution of the Consell de Cent in 1249 until today, when the municipal government manages Mercabarna, Barcelona's great pantry. It is a rather remarkable story, that was not repeated in other major European cities.
