Anthem of the Escola Europea de Short Sea Shipping

2E3S.eu Escola Europea de Short Sea Shipping.Music: Eduard Rodes «A Walk around the Port» follows a route from the beginning of the Moll de la Fusta wharf at Barcelona’s harbour to the site of the «European School of Short-Sea Shipping» on the Moll de Barcelona wharf. The walk symbolizes the journey that we must all make to reach our goals and obtain what we want. The sculptures that punctuate the walk correspond to the values with which the School identifies itself and that it tries to cultivate and defend.

Cap de Barcelona - Roy Lichtenstein

Imaginatio

Creativity, seen as the ambition to search for new ways to make things that enrich their accomplishment.



Roy Lichtenstein
Cap de Barcelona , 1992
concrete lined with ceramics, 14.21 x 5.5 m
(Barcelona City Council)


Sculpture by North American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. It is found at the crossing of the visual axis of Via Laietana and the Moll de la Fusta. Cap de Barcelona (Head of Barcelona) belongs to a series of heads of reduced scale entitled brushstrokes, made by the artist in a stage of maturity. These heads are structured with enormous brushstrokes and of surfaces covered with relief points that have their origin in the extension of the plot of the impression. Whereas the traits of the feminine face are solved with an enormous gesture outline, the bottom is covered with chromatic points that evoke the mechanical reproduction of comics. The ceramic lining is a tribute to Gaudí.

Dialogus

Parella - Lautaro Díaz Silva

Dialogue, to help find ways of collaboration to make things better for society and people

Lautaro Díaz Silva
Parella , 1998
1.72 x 2.44 m

At the Moll de la Fusta, the sculptural work titled Parella (Couple) by artist Lautaro Díaz Silva, evokes a couple of lovers seating at the end of the promenade, contemplating the waters of the port. The 144 cm from the base to the head and the 100 cm from the knees to the feet allow the piece to be contemplated from a distance. Two slender characters coloured with a greenish patina are the eternal lovers who watch the steps of the passers-by.

Monument to Joan Salvat-Papasseit  - Robert Krier

Libertas

Self-determination, based on freedom to decide and to construct our future and to express our ideas without restrictions.

Robert Krier
Monument to Joan Salvat-Papasseit , 1992
Bronze and basalt , 4 x 1.95 m
(Barcelona City Council)

At the Portal de la Pau there stands a sculpture dedicated to the Catalan avant-garde poet Joan Salvat-Papasseit, a person with strong links to the city’s sea life. As a young man he worked at the Moll de la Fusta as a stevedore. Salvat dedicated many poems to the sea, like his famous Nocturnal for Accordion, a fragment of which is reproduced at the base of the monument. The project installed in 1992 is by Luxembourger architect, city planner and sculptor Robert Krier, who made a figurative bust of great expressivity, whereas the basalt base was designed by Leon Krier, the brother of the sculptor.

Vosaltres no sabeu
què és
guardar fustes al moll.
Ni sabeu l'oració dels fanals dels vaixells
-que són de tants colors
com la mar sota el sol:
que no li calen veles.


You do not know
what it is
to tend the timber on the dock.
Nor do you know the prayer of the boat lights–
-which are of as many colours
as the sea under the sun:
that does not need sails.


Monument a Ròmul Bosch i Alsina -  Robert Krier

Opus

Work and joint effort, necessary to take our project ahead




Robert Krier
Monument to Ròmul Bosch i Alsina , 1992
Bronze and basalt , 4 x 1.65 x 1.95 m
(Barcelona City Council)

The monument to Ròmul Bosch i Alsina again by artist Robert Krier and brother Leon, who designed the basalt base, was set up in 1992. It seeks to pay tribute to one of the promoters of the reconversion and extension of Barcelona harbour. Doctor, Member of Parliament, Senator and Mayor of Barcelona, he presided over the Port’s Works Council from 1900 to 1904 and from 1906 to his death. The old Moll de la Muralla is currently known as Moll de Bosch i Alsina, thus named in his honour. This sculpture acts like a symbolic nexus between the sea and the inhabitants of Barcelona, represented by this illustrious personage.

Ones - Andreu Alfaro

Fides

Commitment, with nature and society in a logistic development respectful with the environment and the people.



Andreu Alfaro
Ones , 2003
steel

At the entrance of the Port of Barcelona, between Drassanes square and the World Trade Centre complex, stands Ones (Waves), a sculpture by Valencian artist Andreu Alfaro. It is a stainless steel tubular sculpture formed by seven arcs whose undulation suggests the waves of the sea. The successive superposed pieces that raise themselves over the avenues and the central access promenade to the Port of Barcelona represent one of the most singular public installations in the city.
