Can Fargas finally belongs to the people of Horta

The large masia Can Fargas is already public property after the City Council has paid five million euros for its expropriation. Neighbors and politicians "took ownership" of the house yesterday, in a ceremony full of symbolism meant to the final ten years of litigation, demonstrations and some clashes. With a total area of about 5,000 square meters, the building will be converted into a music school, while its gardens will be open to the public. According to municipal sources, the proposed facility will have about 400 studentsand more than 20 teachers.

I think that after years of discusings and demonstrations have reached a good agreement.
It's good to take the space of the house to finish build a music school, resulting in many children and teachers who so far had no job or who want to change jobs.
That of the garden, to make it a public space is a good idea because many people that there like this can enjoy the gardens during the time anyone has ever seen.
