newsletter GO BACK TO LA RAMBLA newsletter
newsletter
newsletter Twenty-five years ago, a Centre for Olympic Studies in the city's Autonomous University of Barcelona as it hosted the 1992 Olympic Games. In the years since it has amassed a considerable documentary fund of various Olympic Games. Particularly noteworthy is a record of almost every television broadcast worldwide of the opening and closing ceremonies. To be more precise, these are actually the images provided by the public television channel in the hosting country of each Games with the commentaries on the respective local or national stations, which constitutes an outstanding anthropological document. For the Barcelona Games, the images that Spain sent out to the world interspersed the most significant moments of the ceremonies with real-time images of places around the city, including La Rambla which was invariably full to overflowing. The most frequent commentary on channels in Anglo-Saxon countries often picked on the fact that despite the ceremony going on at that time, this unique street, where pedestrians are given twice as much space as vehicles, was constantly crowded with people ambling up and down.

"The nicest street in the world," (Somerset Maugham), "The only street in the land that I would never want to end," (García Lorca), "Barcelona"s ballroom," (Josep Mª de Sagarra) has been, is and will be an extremely fragile ecosystem, highly resistant to regulations and by-laws and even to going by one single name: Rambla de los Estudios or Rambla de las Flores? Rambla de Santa Mónica or Rambla de San José? Rambla or Ramblas? It is a street almost devoid of residents, furtively occupied as it is by authentically fake shops. It stirs up mixed feelings of love and hate among Barcelonans. It is surely no coincidence that local people were a tiny proportion of the victims of the recent attack.

Go back to La Rambla: we, you and them; and show that one of the highest forms of civic life is occupying public space. Go back to La Rambla, and highlight, even beyond what is possible, that cities are the primordial expression of human intelligence. Go back to La Rambla, and do it without fear, mindful again and again that only risk saves.

Eduard Miralles, President of the Board of the Interarts Foundation
