In year 2011 it has a special signification regarding the memory of the years of the Second Republic and the Civil War. In particular, on 14 April of 1931 Francesc Macià it|he|she proclaimed the Catalan Republic how integrated state in the Iberian federation -transformed from the 17 April into the Generalitat de Catalunya- and in Madrid constituted the provisional government of the Second Republic. Therefore, they are fulfilled 80 years of those facts that made the democratic experience of the Second Republic possible. Five years later, in July of 1936, the coup d'état headed by a part of the army, which had the support of an extense conservative coalition, entailed the beginning of the Civil War. Of this event the emblematic figure of 75th anniversary is also commemorated.
