A stained glass window in the Royal School of Medicine

An original proposal for visiting the Royal School of Medicine of Catalonia

'Sopar dels Sentits' is a complete cultural and gastronomic experience.

The head building of the Reial Acadèmia de Medicina de Catalunya, the Royal School of Medicine of Catalonia, is located in Carrer del Carme in the heart of Barcelona’s medieval Raval district.  It’s especially famous for its anatomic operating theatre, which was designed by the architect Ventura Rodríguez. This, and other spaces in the building, can be visited through the initiative Sopar dels Sentits (Supper for the Senses), a complete cultural and gastronomic experience that is scheduled to take place every Saturday evening (though only on Saturday 5th in August).

The first item on the agenda is a tour of the building, followed immediately by a very special dinner that is designed to demonstrate that the brain builds up a picture of reality based on the information that reaches it through our senses, and that the picture we construct can sometimes be at odds with objective reality. The gastronomic game being played at the dinner generates different sensorial perceptions based on music, light, flavours, colours, aromas and textures, all designed with the assistance of the Spanish Society of Sensorial Science.

This activity is organized by the company Sternalia, which is devoted to educating the public in matters of culture, history and science through leisure initiatives held in singular and iconic buildings. One of its most successful initiatives in this line are its Dinners with Stars, which are held at the Fabra Observatory.

Suggestion

Muy interesante esta actividad, probablemente vaya este sábado. Es apasionante ver cómo ha evolucionado la medicina hasta lo que conocemos actualmente como la esalud (más info: https://www.esalud.com), es decir la medicina y salud apoyada en tecnologías de la información y salud.

De nuevo, muchas gracias por esta iniciativa y estaré encantada de visitar más propuestas de difusión historicas.
