Who was the first industrial engineer in Catalonia? And the first architect? Who was the first mayor? And the first councillor? Who was the first Mestra in Gai Saber? And the first president of Poetry Games in Barcelona? And the first president of a feminist entity?…
This book brings together the biographies of 100 Catalans who have been pioneers in some field, from politics to the media, including painting, literature, music, cinema, science, economics, education, trade union action, feminism and sport, among others, from the third century to the present day. A hundred biographies that are particularly inspiring and that make us reflect on how individual decisions have changed collective history.
