The story of 666

666 vs LA SAGRADA FAMIGLIA The Barcelona Happening by Salvador Dali

Salvador Dali wrote a fantastic script for directing a great happening in Barcelona, for the premiere of "666".
Unfortunately this happening never took place.

The main concept:

1. Martial Law shall be ordered on a Sunday, in Barcelona. No one shall be allowed to walk in the streets, or watch the event. No cameras, no TV. Only a young couple of shepherds will have the privilege to witness the event. So, they can later describe it to the people, by oral speech.

2. Giant loudspeakers shall be put in the streets, playing all day the work "666", by Vangelis, Ferris and the Aphrodite’s Child. No live performance.

3. Soldiers dressed in Nazi uniforms, will walk in military march in the streets of Barcelona, arresting who-ever wants to break the law.

4. Hundreds of swans will be left to move in front of the Sagrada Famiglia, with pieces of dynamite in their bellies, which will explode in slow motion by special effects.
(real living swans, that should be operated for putting the dynamite inside their belly).

5. Giant Navy planes, will fly all day in the sky of Barcelona, provoking big noise.

6. At 12.00 sharp, in the mid-day, those planes will start the bombardment of the great church, throwing all of their munitions.

7. Instead of bombs, they shall throw Elephants, Hippopotamus’, Whales and Archbishops carrying umbrellas.

["You mean, false archbishops, that is to say plastic or other dolls dressed as archbishops?" I * dared to ask.
"No, young man. When I say Archbishops, I mean real, living Archbishops. It’s about time to finish with the church!"]
