On the afternoon of Thursday June 15, two guided tours of 2 hours each, in groups of 20 people with an official guide, will be organized (Included in the registration fee). If you are interested, please indicate it when registering to the Conference.
Tour 1: Barcelona Modernista
At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, architects such as Gaudí or Puig i Cadafalch, among many others, made the city of Barcelona an open-air museum unique in the world.
One example of the so-called Barcelona architectural modernism style is the Trencadís, a nontraditional type of mosaic made from nonuniform pieces of broken tiles and chinaware. Trencadís is thus a form of bricolage, found object art, or recycled art.
Tour 2: The old Barcelona
This is a tour through the oldest and most monumental area of the city (the Gothic quarter), and will include the discovery of Roman vestiges, medieval secrets, recent recreations, and endless details that go unnoticed by those who are just walking around.
Knowing the old legends will provide a new vision and experience of the city's history, vocabulary and customs.
On the night of Thursday June 15th, the IWCN 2023 delegates will celebrate the conference Gala dinner at Palau Requesens (Included in the registration fee). If you are interested, please indicate it when registering to the Conference.
Palau Requesens, the largest Gothic palace in Barcelona, is built on top of the (more than 2000 year-old) Roman wall of Barcelona.
Today it is home to the Reial Acadèmia de Bones Lletres de Barcelona.
During the gala dinner, the following invited talk will be given:
A final show will recreate a medieval night as Isabel de Requesens, who was Viceroy of Naples and lived in the palace during the 15th century, would have offered to her most illustrious guests.
