Open reading of poems by Joan Maragall on the year we celebrate the writer’s 150th birthday.
Representatives from Barcelona’s township and Catalonia’s government as well as students from all schools with the poet’s name filled the afternoon of Saint George’s day with verses and poems. And from poem to poem, the stage was filled with poetry, in front of Antoni Tàpies’ speaking mouth, specially painted for the occasion, thus creating a real ‘Garden of poems’.
