  1. why call him Antonio when everyone -even in the film- who knows at least just the basics of this guy's legacy and his cultural and social -heck, even architectural!- background call him by his real Catalan name, Antoni?

  2. Good point. Perhaps it has something to do with the reason we call Germany, Germany and not Deutschland, or Spain, Spain and not EspaƱa etc.

    From here on out I will refer to Antoni Gaudi by his real Catalan Name.
