History

In June 2009, Albert Molina, Xavier Gassó and Abel Parera from Berga Telecentre organized the first Free Software Conferences to be held in town. After the conference, they noted the possibility of naming a street in honor of free software so that they applied for it to the Berga Town Council.In January 2010, the second edition of the Free Software Conferences was being organized and it was decided to invite the Free Software Foundation founder Richard Stallman to participate in the planned events, including the naming ceremony of the street. At the same time, the contacts with the politicians from the town council were being successfully concluded. On 10 June, the renaming of the street as "Carrer del Programari Lliure" ("Free Software Street") was officially approved during a plenary session at the town hall with 14 votes in favor and 2 abstentions.WEB,weblink Esborrany d'acta, Ajuntament de Berga, PDF, 10 June 2010, Catalan, 26 August 2012, On 3 July 2010 at 20:00 {{nowrap|CET}} (19:00 UTC), the Mayor of Berga Juli Gendrau and Richard Stallman finally inaugurated the street.
