To commemorate this anniversary, a series of cultural, political, economical and sociological conferences have been scheduled under the title Catalonia 2050. What will the Catalan society be like in 50 years. These debates will take place during the whole of 2011. Furthermore, different spaces have undergone restoration such as the façade, the conference hall, the Verdaguer area of the Savassona Palace and the library, the latter is considered one of the most important for itsprominent art collection.

The construction of the Ateneo Catalán (www.ateneubcn.org), the original structure of the current Ateneo Barcelonés, dates back to 1860, is currently presided by the architect Oriol Bohigas and has always been a social reference point with a future view.
