Presentation of the book Germans Sàbat, 50 anys d'un poble (Germans Sàbat, Fifty years of a city neighbourhood)
This volume's presentation ceremony was held last Friday, January 16th, with its authors Jordi Busquets, Jaume Prat and Jordi Pericot. The work traces the historical, social and planning development of this Girona district.
The district arose out of a group of 227 single-family houses built by the Provincial Housing Board of Girona at the urging of the regional central-government representative at the time, Luís Mazo Mendo, to solve a problem of lack of housing. It goes on to examine how the district evolved into a residential neighbourhood characterised by the strong sense of identity shown by its inhabitants.
