Joan Hugué Rovirosa (1938 - 2021)


We all are very much saddened by the information that Dr. Joan Hugué i Rovirosa passed away on Sunday, May 16 2021. 

Native of Calafell (province of Tarragona, Catalonia), he devote himself utterly to preserving the Catalan toponymic heritage. He compiled a detailed inventory of the farmhouses in his municipality, which also refers to the toponymy and local names. With this research, Hugué defended his doctorate at the University of Barcelona (UB).
