In 2014, after 42 years of absence from Spain, paraphrasing the well-known Catalan saying: “Roda al món i torna al Born” by the painter and set designer Oleguer Junyent i Sans, friend of his father, Dr. Ramón-Ricardo Vidal and Plana establishes its residence in Barcelona again. Without nostalgia or repetition of the past since, as in an ascending spiral staircase, the new journey is carried out today at another level of consciousness.
