The map of the Catalan Countries by Joan Ballester i Canals is heir to another 1932 image made by the Palestra organization (1930-1938), with the subtitle "La nostra pàtria". Thirty years later, in 1962, a first version of the popular map was published, with the district division. In 1971 the second and definitive version was published, which we now present to you.


 

Following a complaint against the exhibition and sale of the map, the Franco regime decided to fine Ballester for illegal propaganda and sentence him to five years in prison, finally converted into three months and twenty days that he spent in the Model prison in Barcelona. However, the map was reissued several times with large print runs and became a reference for various generations. The writer Joan Fuster said of this work: "The most effective maneuver ever made by the Catalan Countries".
