Description of Our Community: We chose to explain the industrial landscape evolution in Vic and Gurb from its origins to the present. According to the different industrial revolutions we are anticipating how it will be in the future. This area has experienced different evolutions in a few square kilometres but all this has influenced either the community or the economical lifestyle.
Project Description: Our local community is located in La Plana de Vic, Osona (one hour from Barcelona city). Our local community was created as a municipality in 1820. It includes four old rural parishes: Sant Andreu de Gurb, Sant Julià de Sassorba, Sant Cristòfol de Vespella and Sant Esteve de Granollers de la Plana. Gurb has grown during recent years even more than other municipalities in the region. Our community is in a privileged geographical situation with a new network of access road communication.
