The Gift of Civilization

Civilization is a remarkable thing. We see so many manifestations of barbarism and evil that it can be dispiriting. But then we witness a moment of civilization and it is so powerful, so filled with light and beauty, that it restores us. Here is one of those moments that demonstrates the power of people working together to create beauty.

It all started with a Catalan bank's publicity campaign...
On the 130th anniversary of the founding of Banco Sabadell we wanted to pay homage to our city by means of the campaign "Som Sabadell" (We are Sabadell) . This is the flashmob that we arranged as a final culmination with the participation of 100 people from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l'Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs.
