antoni gaudi


Antoni Gaudí was run over by a tram on June 7, 1926 and because he was dressed in ragged clothes and his pockets were empty, no taxi drivers picked him up because they thought he would be unable to pay the fare. After a long time, someone took him to a pauper’s hospital in Barcelona where he died three days later, refusing to go to a nicer hospital. He believed he belonged among the poor.
