Preserving collective memory

Boxes and more boxes. As many as 155 of them, full of messages, posters, items of clothing, decorative objects and cuddly toys, lots of cuddly toys. On the night of 28 August, eleven days after the attack, over 5,000 items placed on La Rambla as a tribute to the victims were removed. The enormous volume of tributes is matched by a strong motivation to preserve the memory of the response from citizens, with even the simplest of messages written on scraps of paper forming part of the memory of events which affected the whole city.

Technical staff from the Museu d’Història de Barcelona (MUHBA) and the Barcelona Municipal Archive have started counting and classifying everything left by citizens and visitors at 149 points along La Rambla and which was carefully collected two weeks ago.

The main work being carried out in this first stage, up until early 2018, focuses on cleaning objects and removing wax and paraffin which had dripped onto them. Later on, each piece will be treated individually if necessary. The texts will be flattened out and stored in envelopes and folders, to then be digitalised.

The aim is to have the most complete information possible about the tribute and the response from citizens to the attack. That means an integrated memorial, which has been developed as from the very next day and which includes photographic and video documentation, as well as the signatures and dedications collected in the physical book of condolences and the digital version which was set up.

Good practice to reduce inconvenience caused by tourist groups

Tourist groups are good for the city’s economy but can cause inconvenience for local residents, particularly in busy areas. That means noise, hampering mobility or access to shops and other establishments. In order to minimise these negative effects, an agreement on good practice has been signed with tour guide associations and is a first step in regulating the sector.

In all, a sixteen-point code of good practice has been set out to maintain a balance with everyday life, to make tourist resources sustainable in public spaces, to guarantee safety and mobility and to promote the role of guides as guarantors of the quality of the city.

The Councillor for Enterprise and Tourism, Agustí Colom, asserted: “This agreement highlights the work of tourist guides”, confirming that the move is “a first step in putting together the necessary regulations to guarantee it is fulfilled”.

Two of the most notable measures involve the use of radio controlled systems allowing guides to give explanations to groups silently, thus reducing noise pollution, and limits on the volume of tourist groups, adapting to the space available at places visited.

The declaration will be extended to all tour operators organising free tours in the city so that they can adopt the measures and help to make Barcelona a more sustainable destination.

Health matters most in the process to free the dolphins from the zoo

Over a hundred experts took part in the international seminar on captive dolphins held in Barcelona, between them concluding that the most important consideration in the process to free marine mammals is their health. Agreement was also reached over the importance of establishing a protocol on monitoring animals released from captivity.

The three day meeting was entitled ‘Bottlenose dolphin workshop – An overview of studies, alternatives and criteria to be considered when a captive facility closes’. It brought together international experts to explain their studies on the bottlenose dolphin population in the Mediterranean, programmes to monitor animals from zoos and aquariums and participatory projects relating to their conservation. Alternatives were also presented for dolphin populations which have been in captivity for long periods.

The participants agreed that the most important considerations are the animals’ health and a proper monitoring process, rather than the immediate availability or characteristics of where they live. It is also necessary to guarantee appropriate support and an accurate evaluation of their welfare and health. All the conclusions from the meeting will be summed up in a protocol with steps to follow, regulations, alternatives and decision-making processed for cities who no longer wish to keep captive dolphins.

The seminar, which included speeches, working sessions and a visit to the zoo, formed part of the series of actions being organised in Barcelona since the city declared itself free of captive dolphins in 2016.

Redesignation of building use around the Palau de la Música

The buildings at Carrer Sant Pere Més Alt 13b, 15 and 17, and Carrer Amadeu Vives 2-8, formerly classified for hotel use, have had their use redesignated to match the current needs of the district. Local residents and social entities in Ciutat Vella have consistently opposed the construction of a new hotel in the heart of the neighbourhood.

The Government Commission agreed to change the existing planning classification due to the outright rejection from local residents and organisations to a new hotel in Ciutat Vella. Full Council had already called for the planning use to be revoked on two occasions, in 2010 and 2016. By redesignating the building for use as a teaching facility, the buildings next to the Palau de la Música will be able to meet the future needs of the district better, all parties involved having to respect and adapt to the designated use.

According to the Deputy Mayor for Ecology, Urban Planning and Mobility, Janet Sanz, it’s about urban justice: “There will be no hotel in the heart of Ciutat Vella, just as local residents have been speaking up for and as set out in the Special Plan on Tourist Accommodation, which identifies this zone as a place to live in dignity”. Sanz also underlined the importance of urban coherence. “It means regaining a facility for the neighbourhood and linking it to local residents’ needs”, she noted.

The move consists of a modification to the General Metropolitan Plan (MGPM), changing the use from a previous version (2009) which designated the buildings next to the Palau de la Música for hotel use. That same year, however, coinciding with the judicial intervention at the Palau, the new management at the entity disregarded the construction of an adjacent hotel.

The new MGPM will now go to the Commission for Ecology, Urban Planning and Mobility and Full Council before being definitively approved by the Catalan government’s Sub-commission for Urban Planning in Barcelona.
