Inauguration of the exhibition “Documents from Girona, 922-2014. Archives, memory and future”

13/10/2014

At half past six on Sunday 12th October, the Cultural Centre in Girona inaugurated the exhibition ‘Documents from Girona, 922-2014. Archives, Memory and Future’, organised and hosted by Girona Provincial Council, attended by the first Vice-President of Girona Provincial Council, Miquel Noguer, Carles Puigdemont, Mayor of Girona and Martin Berendse, President of the International Council on Archives (ICA).

It is the main complementary activity of the International Conference on Archives and Cultural Industries, which is being held in the city from 11th to 15th October, drawing over 900 specialists from around the world. The exhibition presents a selection of great documentary wealth taken from the 12 archives in the city of Girona – rightly named the ‘City of Archives’, covering a period from the year 922 to the present day.

During his speech, the Vice President, Miquel Noguer, mentioned that among the 138 documents selected by the General Archive and the Image Centre, INSPAI, there is a map showing the roads and railways in the province, dating from 1870. This is the first evidence of the territorial structuring initiative carried out by the Provincial Council, as well as a telegram from March 1914, in which Eduardo Dato, President of the Spanish Government, informs Agustí Riera i Pau, President of Girona Provincial Council, about the Government Cabinet’s approval of the Confederation of Town Councils, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
