Memorial for the departed ones


We, the Bordegassos de Vilanova, are an entity with four decades of history. Up to two thousand people have worn the colla's shirt at some moment of their lives.The colla is the people who participate in its daily life, but also the ones who made possible to reach where we are thanks to their contribution.Many of these bordegassos are not among us any more. The colla wants to pay homage to all their members who passed away -because they live in each one of our aletes, and because they will be bordegassos forever.

NOTE: This list is not complete. Many of the bordegassos who have left us lost contact with us a long time ago, and maybe we didn't hear from them. Although we checked all the information we have, many names are still missing. If you know about somebody who should be in the list, we will appreciate that you contact us and give us the necessary information.


The Memorial



  The memorial to the departed Bordegassos is located in the entrance garden of the Vilanova i la Geltrú graveyard. Built on a base of "dry stone", a construction method typical from Garraf, it represents the values which have made possible that, during more than four decades, a human group like ours enjoyed continuity.

  It has been created by Josep Antoni Masana Caelles, an artist born in our city in 1961 and winner of several awards. Initially working in paintings on silk, during 2010 he discovered the stone as a vehicle of artistic expression.

  According to his own words, "To erect stones to honour the deceased is an ancient tradition. Remembering the souls that are not physically present any more gives sense to one's own existence. Strenght, courage, balance, and common sense are values solid enough to define the activity of such a strong human group -the work of all together is the way to achieve success. With these stones, we want to pay homage to the people who transmitted us their wisdom, force, courage, balance, and their common sense."
