The Escola d’Arts i Oficis de Barcelona in Barcelona is a former art school of the great painter Pablo Picasso.
Jaume Roures, head of the Spanish TV and film company Mediapro wanted to turn the former school into a museum dedicated to one of the most iconic director, Woody Allen.
The trade unions in Barcelona are strongly opposing this demand and believe that such a conversion would only be good for the tourists and not the residents. They want the sanctity of the building to be persevered and that it is reopened as an art school.
