Exhibition on immigrants who arrived in Sitges between the 1940s and 70s

60 years after the publication of ‘Els otres catalans’ (‘The other Catalans’), a reference book by Paco Candel on immigration that arrived in Catalonia, the town of Sitges has launched an exhibition in the style of ‘Els otres Sitgetans’. The exhibition is called ‘D’immigrants i sitgetans’ (‘From immigrants to Sitgetans’).

The exhibition portrays a new Sitges through immigration from the 1940s to the 1970s, prepared by the Sitgetan Studies Group on behalf of the Catalan Department of Culture and which can be visited on a tour through different public locations in the town.

The exhibition opened last week in the Plaça Antoni Batlle, in Poble Sec, displaying a summary of the immigration phenomenon that includes, among other elements, the statistics of the municipal register of 1945, 1955 and 1965, where the incidence of newcomers to Sitges can clearly be appreciated, and even their origin. It also shows geographical references in a local key, such as Vallcarca.

The exhibition can be found in Sitges in Poble Sec (3 March to 10 April), Cases Noves (14 April to 1 May), Garraf (5-28 May) and Baluard Vidal i Quadras (1 June to 16 July).
