Literary dinner with Francesc Torralba, culture comes back to the Negresco Restaurant

We start the year with culture. Culture, philosophy and literature, a combination that you can not miss. The philosopher and writer Francesc Torralba will present ‘Desfici’ his first narrative book in the Negresco Restaurant.

After the success of our first literary dinner, the culture is definitely installed in the Negresco Restaurant! What do we have prepared? A spectacular tasting dinner designed by our chef Jon García and entertained by Francesc Torralba talking about books, philosophy, current subjects and culture, lots of culture.

Throughout his career, Francesc Torralba has received several essay awards and has published more than ninety philosophy books on a wide range of topics. He publishes in several specialized magazines and is also very present in the media both in Catalonia and in the Spanish State. Currently, he teaches History of Contemporary Philosophy and Philosophical Anthropology and alternates his teaching activity with writing.

In our first experience with literary dinners, we had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful evening with theater director Juan Lluís Bozzo presenting his book “Pepe y yo“, in memory of the friendship he had for more than 20 years with the actor and humorist Pepe Rubianes. On this occasion, the popular philosopher Francesc Torralba will present us his first work of narrative, ‘Desfici’ three stories with philosophical basis about the essence and human behavior, about the existence of things, their expiration, the time of the experience and the death.

And, what could be better than accompanying it all with the best gastronomic proposal? The restaurant Negresco wanted to surprise the lucky attendees with a selection of 8 dishes and 2 desserts, all of this with Estrella Damm beers (collaborator of the event). Once again, from Hotel Negresco Princess we continue to promote the cultural activity of Barcelona with the Tr3sC Culture Club. A whole challenge included in the hashtag # NegrescoésCultura
