Four orators of recognized international prestige will participate in this opening ceremony: Lord Norman Foster, Frank O.

Her Majesty the Queen will preside over this act, which will be attended by representatives of the three institutions that have declared this celebration and the other institutions, organizations, and companies that have made it possible to carry out the Gaudí Intenational Year through their collaboration.

Later, in the Saló del Tinell of the Museu d’Història de la Ciutat, the exhibit Gaudí.

This show has been prepared by the Ajuntament de Barcelona with the collaboration of the Sociedad Estatal para la Acción Cultural Exterior (SEACEX), with the scientific advice of the Centre de Transferència de Tecnologia of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
