Barcelona, a photo a day


Reflections on the Palau de la Musica Catalana, the Palace of Catalan Music. It is a very interesting building, modernist but with a lovely touch of art nouveau. Covered with glass…
There is much more to say about the institution, as it is unfortunately in the centre of the biggest scandal to shake Barcelona in the last 10 or 15 years. Apparently the management of the Palau used many millions of euros for their own… needs, travels, cars, houses, etc. Are they in jail? No, they just had to surrender their passports… As I said, BIG scandal. And a big loss for the wonderful Catalan culture.

  2. Wow, amazing reflections here. Sorry to hear about the scandal. If the people don't think justice has been served, they will definitely not be happy.

  5. Money and power – it seems so difficult not to be corrupted by either or both.

    Love the building, though. And I love the reflections bouncing every which way. Fine foto!

  7. There is corruption here too…. also by people I never thought would be corrupt!
    Anyway, it looks like an interesting and beautiful “modern” building!

  9. Why am I not surprised? We are quite used to these stories here, but I am beginning to learn that this stuff is not so peculiar to Italy only…
    Great building and excellent reflections.
