Launches a micro-patronage to publish the book ‘Memories of Francesc Pujols’

Caricature made by KAP about the relationship between Esther Antich and Francesc Pujols

The philosophers Alba Padrós and Max Pérez have started one micro-patronage campaign with the digital magazine La Mira and the Tot Suma platform to publish the book Sentimental memories of Francesc Pujols. It is a work that addresses the sentimental, loving, friendly and / or sexual relationships of the philosopher throughout his life, based on the documentation of the Francesc Pujols Foundation. The Torre de les Hores entity is collaborating with the project and has become the workspace and documentation for the work.

The two Girona philosophers define this unpublished unpublished work as “an autobiography of Francesc Pujols focused on his love life, the women with whom he maintained a relationship throughout his life.” It includes correspondence that the philosopher sent to Esther Antich i Seriol “to whom he declares unconditional love”, and also “it is a historical and anecdotal document of pre-war Barcelona”. This is how Pérez and Padrós explain it.

The two graduates in philosophy from the University of Girona have worked in recent years at the Foundation “reading and deciphering the letter of the letters and documents, putting them in order, identifying who was talking with the few existing data, obtaining the names of stacking and discovering features to identify very interesting characters, ”says Padrós. In this way, “a beautiful love story of Pujols with Antich” was discovered and identified, and the door was opened to rescue other women who were part of his life, such as América Cázes, Mercè Nicolau or Mercè Prats.

Pérez explains that the love story between Pujols and Antich dates back to the Civil War: “They could not maintain a romantic relationship due to the war and exile since 1939. Nevertheless, we have the correspondence and we know that it followed the contact ”.

For him, it is “a privilege to be able to enter Pujols’ room and see his intimacy through this book that not only talks about love, but about sex, and that takes us back to one of the typical aspects. de Pujols, eroticism ”.

From this week, anyone can participate in the campaign and do an economic donation. According to his contribution, “prizes and rewards will be given: books about Pujols, his original works -some of them unpublished-, or an introduction to his thought. You can also get an illustration of the cartoonist CAP where Pujols and Antich appear ”.
