Almost one in every four people living in Barcelona was born abroad. They have come to the city to study, to work, for love, and to seek refuge. The newspaper ARA has interviewed some of these people to find out what they think of the city, among them Camille Stephan-Otto Attolini, head of the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Facility at IRB Barcelona.
