On a day like today in 1978, Pere Rovira died at the age of 57. A heart attack ended the career of this internationally renowned Badalona seamstress, who left behind a large collection of designs as a testament to his undisputed talent.
An important example of the originality and modernity of his proposals can be seen in the Museum of Badalona, in the exhibition Pedro Rovira, 1921-1978, which commemorates the centenary of the birth of this fashion artist.
The exhibition, curated by Josep Casamartina i Parassols and Ismael Núñez Muñoz, can be seen until Sunday 17th October and is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 5pm to 8pm and on Sundays from 10am to 2pm. Admission is free.
The Museum has also published a complete monograph with the same title, written by Casamartina himself, which traces both his biography and the value of his contribution to the world of fashion. You can buy it both in the Museum store and online.
