This event is associated with the 25a Diada de la Puntaire in Arenys de Mar. The basis of this exhibition are three major pieces made by Casa Castells de Arenys de Mar for the Chapel of St. George in the Palau de la Generalitat, the seat of Catalan government in Barcelona. They were made between 1927 and 1929, and are considered the best of Catalonian laces. The exhibition will also include designs and patterns used in the realization of the works.
