Presentation of the book "EL MODERNISME A LES TERRES DE TARRAGONA. L'arquitectura emblemàtica dels anys 1885-1928"
This book offers a visual tour of modernism and the disappeared noucentisme (1880-1928) of the Tarragona regions through some 200 images, some more than centuries old, and also photographs that are impossible to take now. Why? Because its environment has radically changed, therefore, I dream the witness of a bygone era.
Thanks to the images from the publisher's archive, those donated by individuals, entities and regional and local archives, and the texts that accompany them, you will learn about the architectural heritage of a period, the Belle Époque. At the same time, the book reflects urbanism and social life through buildings, industries, establishments, entity headquarters and, above all, streets and squares that have been spaces for our ancestors to live together and that will make you claim the present, know and cherish this heritage and fight to protect its future.
I invite you to take a journey in black and white complemented by captions of brief photographs, which allow you to contextualize and interpret an already intangible past. A trip to the memory of an enriching past, immortalized thanks to the art of photography.
