The president of the Paraliament of Catalonia visits the Pau Casals Museum The president of the Parliament of Catalonia, Mr. Ernest Benach, visited the Pau Casals Museum and the temporary exhibition "Pau Casals and the Exile" on the past January 9th. The president was accompanied on his visit by the mayor of El Vendrell and by the director and various members of the Board of Trustees of the Pau Casals Foundation.

The president of the Parliament praised the figure of Pau Casals as an unquestionable referent of the Catalan spirit and of humanism, and he presented to the Pau Casals Foundation a sculpture by Manel Llaurador which draws its inspiration from Pau Casals. This work of art forms part of the Parliament of Catalonia’s institutional gift, together with a book and music by the Maestro. President Benach stated that the figure of Pau Casals was chosen to spread the knowledge of Catalonia round the world because no one like him symbolizes the internationalization of the Catalan reality.
