“El somni” is the first of 250 Barcelona Cards we are publishing. They will be the image, the icon of this great project, the dream. It is not the first card in a deck of playing cards, it is the first in a set of concepts, an invitation to think, to reflect.
The 250 Barcelona Cards have been created by Franc Aleu and the illustrator Peret. It is they that must set the tempo, provide the central idea of this intense dream, this exhilarating opera in 12 acts with a prelude.
Barcelona City Council, with a clear ambition to go further, to move towards a prosperous and culturally enriching future, is using these cards as a vehicle to enhance Barcelona’s position in the world as a symbol of commitment to the culture of innovation, stimulating thoughts, ideas, commitments and realities, always at the forefront.
