The City Council of Barcelona has denounced that some strangers they have mutilated the arms of the monument to the sardana in Montjuïc, in an attack similar to the one that this sculpture already suffered in 2014.
In a message on his Twitter account, the Deputy Mayor for Security of the Barcelona City Council, Albert Batlle, has denounced the attack against this sculpture, which reproduces several people dancing a sardana, although some of them now present their mutilated arms.

“We condemn the savagery and appeal to fight for coexistence and against incivism,” said Batlle.
The monument to the sardana is a work done by the cartoonist and writer Josep Cañas, which is located on the road to the castle of Montjuïc, with a diameter of four meters and eight figures of about two meters high, carved in limestone from Ulldecona (Tarragona).
In the center of the sculpture, the author placed a stone from the mountain of Montserrat, to symbolize the belongings, such as the bags, that the sardanists usually leave while they dance this traditional Catalan dance.
