Seminar “ENTRADES REIALS A BARCELONA, 1500-1700”, Barcelona, MUHBA, 24 & 31 January 2019

Al llarg dels segles, les entrades reials foren moments essencials que reflectien, mitjançant la posada en escena, les relacions polítiques entre la monarquia i la ciutat. Les entrades tenien una naturalesa doble: formaven part de les festivitats urbanes alhora que constituïen el cicle festiu i de celebracions de la monarquia. Especialment, representaven un moment idoni per a l’escenificació i la projecció del poder monàrquic. Així, la cerimònia de l’entrada reial, simbiosi de processó cívica i religiosa a la vegada, esdevenia una ocasió única per a la negociació política, social i fins i tot identitària. Aquest seminari reuneix experts en la història de la cultura de la ciutat de Barcelona a l’edat moderna.
