Editorial Montaner y Simón. A Publishing House with History. Dynamic visit
Dynamic visit around the history of the Modernista building for Secondary School children, university students and students of vocational courses.
Dynamic visit to the building of the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, built by Lluís Domènech i Montaner at the end of the nineteenth century. This building exemplifies the transition from an eclectic architecture typical of the nineteenth century to a new style, Modernisme. It is also one of the few surviving examples of a way of building that has long since disappeared. The activity pays special attention to the original function of the building as the site of Editorial Montaner y Simón – a pioneer publishing house in Spain, known as much for the volume of its production as for the quality of its publications – and to some of the literary personalities who worked there, such as Pere Calders, Jesús Moncada and Josep Soler Vidal.
