Historian Daniel Giralt-Miracle transfers his collection to National Archive
The academic, critic and art historian Daniel Giralt-Miracle has handed over his personal archive to the Government of Catalonia to be stored in the National Archive of Catalonia, which is located in Sant Cugat del Vallès. The transfer took place last December, although it was formalised in early February in a ceremony with the Catalan Minister of Culture, Natàlia Garriga Ibáñez, among other figures.
The Daniel Giralt-Miracle documentary collection that was transferred represents a volume of 1,803 standard-format boxes in addition to his library, which is estimated at approximately 15,000 volumes covering the period 1960-2019.
Get the Guidebook of Barcelona Modernisme Route
The Barcelona Modernisme Route is an itinerary that takes you through the Barcelona of Gaudí, Domènech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch, the architects who, together with others, made Barcelona the world capital of Modernisme. This Route enables you to get to know thoroughly impressive palatial residences, amazing houses, the temple that has become a symbol of the city and a huge hospital, but it also includes humbler and more everyday buildings and items such as chemists’, shops, lampposts and benches - modernist works which show that Art Nouveau put down strong roots in Barcelona and today Modernisme is still an art that is alive and part of life in the city.
The Guidebook of Barcelona Modernisme Route can be acquired in our centers of Modernisme.
