Mercabarna sets the scene

Directed by the Swiss-born Stefan Kaeg, the show sought to reveal the everyday hardships and vicissitudes of two Bulgarian lorry drivers on their Europe circuits. Thus, the transport lorry was transformed into a mobile stall where the audience could experience the everyday life of the characters first-hand and explore some of the regular stops on their routes.

One of these venues was Mercabarna, where, thanks to a commentary by Aris Mestieri, a member of the Department of Security and Surveillance, viewers could find out how Mercabarna works and the many services it offers to the thousands of lorry drivers who pass through it every day.
