|It is a coin with two faces looking west and east. They correspond to the numina, ancient Roman deities that protected mankind and taught him how to walk. Between these two profiles is the Mediterranean, the cradle of the revolution of knowledge, which is the driving force of change towards new sustainable logistics. At the bottom we can see Isis, the goddess of wisdom, who will light our way forward. Around the image are the characteristic values of the school:
A walk around the port , 2006
|Music is one of the elements representing the spirit underlying the school. This piece, composed by Eduard Rodés, is entitled “A walk around the port” and represents a route from the beginning of the Moll de Fusta wharf in the Port of Barcelona to the school in the Moll de Barcelona wharf. The walk symbolizes the journey that we must make to attain our goals, and the sculptures on the way correspond to the values with which the school identifies itself and which it tries to cultivate and defend.|
Monument to Ròmul Bosch i Alsina , 1992
Bronze and basalt, 4 x 1.65 x 1.95 m
(Barcelona City Council)The monument to Ròmul Bosch i Alsina is by the artist Robert Krier. Once again he asked his brother Leon to design the basalt base. This sculptural piece, installed in 1992, pays tribute to one of the promoters of the conversion and extension of the Port. Bosch i Alsina was a doctor, member of parliament, senator and mayor of Barcelona, and was president of the Works Council of the Port from 1900 to 1904 and from 1906 to his death in 1923. The former Moll de la Muralla is today called Moll de Bosch i Alsina, and is named in his honour. This sculpture is a symbolic link between the sea and the people of Barcelona, represented by this illustrious figure.
At the entrance to the Port of Barcelona, between Atarazanas square and the World Trade Centre complex stands Ones (Waves) from the Valencian artist Andreu Alfaro. It is a tubular stainless steel sculpture formed by seven arcs, whose undulating forms evoke the waves of the sea. The successive superimposed pieces rising over the avenues and the central boulevard leading to the Port of Barcelona represent one of the most unusual public attractions of the city.
