Estigues al dia de tot allò que envolta la Casa Navàs

Casa Navàs is extending the exhibition “Barça ‘Més que un Club’, Montjuïc, ‘un estadi refugi'” until 7 March.

Casa Navàs is extending the exhibition “Barça ‘Més que un Club’, Montjuïc, ‘un estadi refugi'”, which can be visited free of charge in the former fabric shop until 7 March. Reus is the second stop of this exhibition that intends to be itinerant, produced by Barça Foundation and UNHCR, right after its debut last October at the very Lluis Companys Stadium. The exhibition explains the key role played by the Barcelona venue in welcoming refugees during the Spanish Civil War.


Between the autumn of 1936 and the spring of 1937, in the middle of the Spanish Civil War, the Lluís Companys Stadium in Montjuïc hosted more than 21,000 displaced people from different parts of the country. The Polish-born photographer Margaret Michaelis recorded the daily life of the thousands of families who passed through this sports stadium. Today, the Montjuïc stadium is the provisional home of FC Barcelona and the club, through its Foundation, wants to vindicate the role of the stadium, which welcomed thousands of people fleeing the Civil War.


The exhibition, which is intended to be itinerant, opened last October in Montjuïc and makes the second stop in Reus, in the old fabric store of Casa Navàs. Precisely this store already has a link with FC Barcelona and is that the current window of this space is the work of Francesc Mitjans, the architect who designed the Camp Nou.


“Barça ‘Més que un Club’, Montjuïc, ‘un estadi refugi'” can be visited from Monday to Friday from 11 am to 2 pm and from 5 pm to 7 pm, and on Saturdays from 5 pm to 8 pm. With this exhibition, FC Barcelona, its Foundation, UNHCR, and Casa Navàs want to help making visible the situation suffered by more than 110 million refugees and displaced people in the world today.
