A different and innovative format in the world that will allow you to discover this masterpiece of Gaudí from a very different perspective than usual.
One night 100 years ago, new story and soundtrack
Fermina and the 5 children she took care of star in a fictional story full of magic that is also a tribute to the women of the last century. One night 100 years ago takes us back to the origins of everyday life at Casa Batlló, highlighting the role of a woman who, without being part of the family, left an indelible mark on the childhood of the grandchildren of Mr. and Mrs. Batlló.
To develop the story, which takes place in the 1920s, an extensive documentation process has been followed: unpublished images have been recovered and different people from the family who lived with Fermina have been interviewed. In addition, Una noche hace 100 años has a musical proposal composed exclusively for the experience, which has been conceived as the soundtrack of a film whose mission is to enhance the emotions that the visitor experiences during the tour.
Juan Carlos Marimón, great-grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Batlló says: "After the death of her husband, Fermina had to go into service in a house to earn a living. For me and my siblings she was like a grandmother. I remember her telling us stories and making a legendary Catalan cream. My father adored her. She was like a second mother to him and he was very fond of her. Fermina was an institution in the house. When she retired, she stayed to live with us. She didn't consider anything else. In fact, when she died in '77 she was buried in the family pantheon."
