In front of Barcelona’s Arc de Triomf, 26-year-old Adrià Ballester sets up two chairs and a sign.

Anyone is welcome to stop,

agrees a young Italian psychology student among the day’s visitors.

“We live in a world where it’s often easier to send a message to someone

from another country than to say good morning to our neighbours,”
