After a difficult year for everyone, we are back with our batteries recharged. Today we come to present a new project of BarcelonArt of Travel, the specialized training on Antoni Gaudí for official guides.
This course has As a main objective, to teach and learn about the beauty of cultural heritage and artistic activities of Antoni Gaudí, discover his working and research methods and give the importance that the architect’s constructions deserve in Barcelona and its surroundings, which are part of the Heritage List Worldwide.
That said, we would like to recommend 6 specialized readings on the architect, from Gaudí’s Royal Chair. The works are as follows:
“Antoni Gaudí. My itinerary with the architect” by Juan Matamala Flotats. This is an extensive work of about 800 pages. The author wanted to authenticate each of the pages with a notary’s signature and seal. Avoiding repetitions, unifying the narrative style and subtitling the text to make it easier to read, it was the task of condensing and reducing the original so that readers can rigorously obtain the story of Antoni Gaudí as seen by Juan Matamala Flotats and no one else.
“ La mort de Gaudí i el seu ressò en els diaris i revistes de l’època” by Lluís Bonet i Armengol (CAT).

“ De la Piedra al Maestro ” by Etsuro Sotoo and José Manuel Almuzara.
