Barcelona – El Raval – Ravalejar (v.)


Stephane giner

The Barcelona City Council wants to improve the perception of one of its most marginal and insecure inner city districts: the Raval. The campaign seeks to project a more cohesive image of the neighbourhood but without losing its characteristic identity and personality.
The aim is to attract new visitors to the district and create a pride of belonging amongst its residents. The proposal to introduce a new verb, Ravalear (Ravalejar in Catalan), is meant to create a brand personality for the neighbourhood: a way of life, of feeling, of doing things. The verb represents the edgy attitude and nervous energy of the Raval, is deliberately ill-defined and meant to be interpreted in an individual way. To Ravalejar, simply visit and take in the atmosphere of the Raval and have fun in the wide range of bars and clubs.
