Barcelona apartments in Ciutat Vella: districts closing down more than 700 lacking a licence
The head of Barcelona's City Council's District of Ciutat Vella, Itziar González, announced yesterday in a press conference that the District has been able to close down or reconvert 700 Barcelona apartments formerly dedicated to daily rentals. The number of apartments in Barcelona Old Town with a licence is of 650. The charm of renting an apartment in a building with neighbours might in the long term become a thing of the past, since the District is thinking of changing the law to promote licences being voluntarily transfered to buildings exclusively dedicated to this activity. The positive fact being that this would offer better services to users and allow locals to keep to themselves. Apartur, the trade organization, welcomes these changes and the struggle against unfair competition, but also asks the District to let the legal part of the industry going back to an organised expansion process, slowly, soundly but surely.

“Restos 7 AM” at « EL OFF »
The theatrical show “Restos 7 AM” which counts with the support of the Institut del Teatre had for only previously known basis an interest about intimacy. This play is much more than a mere succession of soliloquies. It brings up an insular space, a closed space, by night… An after, a bar, or simply some place where young people let their bodies run aground worn-out sofas, a space for youth and night to show how partial the truth of the words is after the laughter of the evening is gone, when the company of alcohol and lively music turns out to be ephemeral, and that, alone, they remain, speaking in the night, like in a long-lasting adolescence plentiful of vertiginous changes. Sunrise. Makeup trickling down the faces. Weakened bodies. Seven lonely souls. A 24-hour day. A bar in Barcelona. A club at daybreak, or a bleak recess of the city to share the last beer. Seven clueless young people. Darkness. One of them stands out the shade from time to time. Speaking alone, like crazy people do. Speaking crazy, like lonely people do. Disappears back into the shade, and another one comes out. Until the end, accompanied by the chords of a violin.</p> <p align="justify"><br> The direction is signed by the Argentinean director Juan Manuel Urraco Crespo, and the cast is composed by actors of various origins:<br> - David Eudave (Mexico) <br> - Marco Pacheco (Mexico)<br> - Valentine Deville Fradin (France) <br> - Daniela De Vecchi (Brasil)<br> - Juan M. Urraco Crespo (Argentina) <br> - Anabel Cristobal (Spain)<br> - Edurne Ucero (Spain) <br> - Catalina Esquivel (Colombia) </p> <p><font color="#0000FF"><strong>The performances:</strong></font><br> Thursday 22nd of May at 11PM<br> Saturday 23rd of May at 11PM<br>
