A Peu de Museu (The Museum in the Street) is an invitation to explore the streets of Cervera from a new perspective. With technology, in the shape of a mobile phone, you can participate in the stories of three women living at three crucial moments in the city's history.
Their voices will accompany you on your journey as you visit the town's historic sites and buildings, and they will reveal what is hidden inside. If you follow all the routes, you will witness some events from the past, as if at first hand, and form a view of Cervera as a town in constant transformation.
3 ROUTES, 3 STORIES, 3 WOMEN
I am Margarida, the slave of Menarguens. I have had two children. The first, from an unknown father (well, this is what they have stated to not make public the name of the father, but I know it ...), I baptized it with the name of Pere, on April 21 from 1434, in the church of Santa Maria. My second child was born three years later, already in the middle of summer, and I baptized it on July 12. In this case, the predecessor approached to note who was the father: Master Gauter, notary profession, good friend of my master ... and now, too, of the creature!
My name is Regina and I married Isaac de Quercí, son of Isaac de Quercí major and brother of Jacob. Since my man died, everything went wrong. We have not had any male son who could continue the family's surname and this has made that, as our law dictates, they will marry me with my brother-in-law Jacob. You see that you have fled to the baroness of Anglesola because you do not want it and me ... Nobody has asked me anything! The Quercí have had to resort to the Chancellery of King John II to give a wedding order or, on the contrary, leave me freely through halisah. Although nothing satisfies him, he has chosen to give me freedom.
I am the Ignasia Brach, but everyone knows me as the Nasa Tobaco. I run a tavern in the Major street of Cervera, where students from the University and many other young people from the area attend. To my family there are recognized authorities in the university environment who know very well what represents my tavern: a space of freedom in the rigid university Cervera. In spite of the frequent disputes between the youth, I like to think that, in my business, people are happy because I offer services and little-seen games. From Barcelona I have brought the first pool table that is in the whole city!
