Josep Benet's life is a good summary of the history of Catalonia in the second half of the 20th century. In the hope and defeat of the war, and in the path and goal of regaining our collective identity, we are rooted in the primordial idea of overcoming the social fracture that sparked the conflict. Like a single town, a whole idea of a country s normal country, is on the horizon. Each initiative is often characterized by resistance and an obstinate commitment to the unity of action. His life became a continuous and sustained act of self-demand, commitment, and responsibility, which led to the reconstruction of Catalonia and the recovery of democratic freedoms and social rights.
