Feeding Barcelona. City, provisioning and health
Exhibitions, Food and Wine
10/16/2021 - 10/15/2022
The Muhba, Museu de Historia de Barcelona, is presenting an exhibition that looks back at how the city has historically managed its food supply. Feeding the population has always been a major concern of municipal governments and Barcelona has been no exception. The exhibition traces the beginnings of this issue, with the constitution of the Consell de Cent in 1249 until today, when the municipal government manages Mercabarna, Barcelona's great pantry. It is a rather remarkable story, that was not repeated in other major European cities..
