The Gegants return to the UAB in celebration of its 50th anniversary
The cultural group Colla gegantera de Molins de Rei recently restored the UAB's Gegants, which were created by artists EsperanÁa Cases, Montserrat Torres and Pepa Sintes in 1988. The gegants are one of the oldest folkloric figures of the festivals held in many towns of Catalonia.
The UAB Gegants have been restored in celebration of the university's 50th anniversary and once again formed part of the festivities of the Festa Major, held on 9 November. Jaume Coma, Gerard Pouget, Victor Llangostera, Joan Parellada, Miquel Burgès and other members of the cultural group “Colla gegantera de Molins de Rei” were in charge of restoring the giant figures. They were also the ones to parade and make the giants dance at the Festa Major.
