Under the Tower Bell’s eyes : The Revolta of the Quintas

  • Have you ever been to Gràcia in a special April Sunday and been witness of something like a real war?

  • Don’t you know why there is a fire in the square and why people are burning documents and furniture of the Town hall?

  • What is the Revolta of the Quintas and how people from Gràcia manage to organize and to represent it?

This documentary will explain you how and why this small format Reenactment was born and why it has become an importnat part of the traditions of Gràcia .

The documentary project began with a simple study on the Heritage Interpretation: then we added photos and interviews to the volunteers, then the interviews to the writers who have studied the issue of the Revolt of Gràcia of 1870 and also the point of view of the organizers of the event and of the professionals of the Heritage Interpretation.

Perhaps the self organized aspect of the Revolta is the key fact and the intrinsic meaning of of the event, congruent with the nature of the revolt itself: an act of popular will. The “Revolta” is a representation that takes place in the same square as it did in 1870, and it’s done in order to preserve its memory, to present the facts, to explain its meaning. A metaphor of what was the true riot: a need to disobey the natural order of things.

Your contribution

The aim of this campaign is to produce high quality copies of DVDs : a careful editing of the DVD and of the study.

Your contributions will help usto pay for the production of the copies : if we reach more than the necessary , the excess will be invested to buy materials for the next performance.


The documentary is finished : inserting subtitles in English and Spanish is what is left to do and, of course, add the names of patrons !!! Come on!!!
