The inner city

Teatro de los Sentidos
  • To mark the 80th anniversary of the first bombing of the city of Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War, Giovanna Pezzullo presents The inner City
  • The project is a collaboration of Teatro de los Sentidos with the Asociación Inefable and the Museum of History of Barcelona (MUHBA), and was advisored by the European Observatory on Memories

The Inner City is conceived as a sensory journey through the tunnels of the Shelter 307, one of the 1,400 bomb shelters built in Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War to protect the population from the indiscriminate aerial bombing. This particular place is transformed by the company Teatro de los Sentidos in a live territory that hides flowing memories, emotions and feelings. A poetic experience aimed to trigger a reflection about the past, the present and the future, by asking: Why should we protect today?
