Emili Boada has been working in the field of Catalan ethnography for many years. For a long time, his shop in C/ Comtal in Barcelona has had a display on Catalan rural heritage: photographs and tools he has collected during his numerous walks in Pla de Santa Maria, Les Garrigues, Montsià, Vallès etc.
Emili provides the words, poetry; his own words and those of other friends of Pedra Seca, including the poet Rosa Canela and the writer and journalist Rosa Vendrell. His vocation for spreading culture has set a trend. Now there are a group of us who look at the landscape in another way, taking photos, documenting dry-stone sheds, removing weeds, mending a stone that has been moved out of place... collecting proverbs, expressions and stories that make up the soul of these buildings.
