Modernism and Sport!
In the age of Modernism, Terrassa underwent a transformation that affected every area of life of its inhabitants. The city was a world leader in the textile industry and there was much fascination with the European Anglo-Saxon models. Economic growth and social transformations established the foundations for our modern sport, arising out of traditional games, rules and adoption of foreign events. Contemporary sport is thus the child of modernisation and industrialisation.
Come to Terrassa and enjoy the Festival of Modernism, where you’ll discover the birth of sport as we know it today.
