Snippet: A House of Literature for Barcelona

A 19th century mansion called Vil·la Joana/Quinta Juana, situated in Vallvidrera (Barcelona province) and mainly known as the place where the poet-priest Jacint Verdaguer (Wikipedia article) died, will be reformed and made into a museum, a writers’ residence and a place of literary encounters. The official name will be Casa Verdaguer de Literatura, Ciutat i Naturalesa [Verdaguer House of Literature, Town and Nature]. The construction work is budgeted with 3.2M Eur and will last until the second half of 2015.
