Port of Barcelona approves license for Hermitage project

Description

Barcelona, May 27 (EFE).- The board of directors of the Port of Barcelona has approved a license for the development of a museum and cultural center promoted by the Hermitage Museum of St. Petersburg and the Catalan capital’s Teatre del Liceu. The city council, which voted against the proposal because it wanted more time to consider the project, is already considering legal action. The construction of the cultural center promoted by the Hermitage in the area known as Nova Bocana, designed by Japanese architect and Pritzker Prize winner Toyo Ito, would involve private investment of some 50 million euros and generate some 380 jobs, according to a study by the Municipal Institute of Culture. The concession will create “a new, international meeting point for art, design and culture,” according to a press release.
