Catalonia, Spain

Mas de Serral is a pathway with a single destination: the origin. When we distance ourselves from our roots, we are able to reflect about the place we come from, there where our identity was shaped, where we learned to dream as children and where fears were nothing more than horizons to cross. Perhaps this is what happened to Joan Miro when, in 1922, he was staying in Paris and painted La Masia, The Farm, the painting where he paidhomage to the country house in Mont-Roig del Camp where he learned to drwa when he was 3 years old. Similarly, observing the painting by Miro in the National Gallery during a key time when he was far from home, Ppe Raventos realized that his dream was to restore Mas de Serral to its origins: traditional agricutlure based on the harmony between nature, animals and mankind and the evidence that, as the painter said, "to be universal you have to be radically local."
