Catalan government presents Miró-Picasso exhibition to consular corps
Excluding capitals, Barcelona is the fourth city in the world with the largest diplomatic representation
The Catalan government presented the Miró-Picasso exhibition to the consular corps of Catalonia on Monday.
The visit - part of the second edition of the Catalan Cultural Day - is intended to allow diplomats in Catalonia to experience Catalan culture first-hand.
With this plan, the Catalan government also aims to strengthen diplomatic relations with foreign governments through their consuls.
Barcelona holds a prominent position on the international stage, being the fourth city (excluding capitals) with the most consular representations, after New York, Hamburg and Hong Kong.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Meritxell Serret, and the Minister of Culture, Natàlia Garriga, welcomed representatives from 25 countries, along with the president and director of the Joan Miró Foundation and the director of the Picasso Museum.
The exhibition features more than 250 works by both artists from public and private collections around the world.
