The impact of tourism in preserving the Modernista heritage

CX La Pedrera (Casa Milà), Barcelona
Organised by The Réseau Art Nouveau Network with the support of the Culture Programme 2007-2013 of the European Comission & the Obra Socila CX CatalunyaCaixa

"Tourism and preserving the Modernista heritage: a source of funding... a source of problems?" that is the issue up for discussion at the Historical Laboratory II to be held at the Auditori CX La Pedrera on 4 June. These conferences will feature discussions on the sustainability of buildings and the solutions that can be applied to buildings that attract large numbers of tourists. The speakers, who come from all around Europe and beyond, will be discussing the cases of La Pedrera (Casa Milà) in Barcelona, the Museum Horta in Brussels, The Glasgow School of Art in Scotland, the Palau Cueto in Havana and the Crespi d'Adda planned industrial colony in the region of Lombary, among others.

The Réseau Art Nouveau Network is currently made up of sixteen cities and six institutions that promote academic and educational activities, to disseminate and study Art Nouveau through the support of the European Commission's 2007-2013 Culture Programme.

The network is noted as much for its enterprise and commitment as for putting the case for a rigourous and vigilant scientific approach for keeping professionals informed and shaping public opinion on the cultural importance of this heritage we have so near at hand. Which is why these two days of talks will be open to the public.

Free participation with compulsory registration before 27 May.
