Barcelona is the largest metropolis on the Mediterranean Sea. Its character balances the past with the present creating a dynamic urban city and historic Mediterranean capital. In our latest video with Mercedes-Benz, we explored the city’s compelling culture through the eyes of Sören Manzoni.

Manzoni experienced and influenced several cultural changes in Barcelona that followed the 1992 Summer Olympics. He played a significant role in growing the skate and surf scenes in the city and continues to help develop its nightlife through his events agency and DJing.

As a first generation surfer and early skater in Barcelona, Manzoni had to maintain his integrity when faced with scorn. For him, respecting the past and its influence on the present, as well as focusing on the positives in his life, helped him continue striving.

Powered by the metropolis, Manzoni tells his story and takes Mercedes’ E-Class Coupé around the city in our energetic new video, Respect the Past. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé combines sportiness and luxury into an intelligent and powerful vehicle.

In our last Mercedes video, we traveled to Lisbon with photographer Miguel Domingos.
