(they) Live

he symbols of the past have the value that us, as human beings, give to them. By themselves do not retain any entity or meaning. The different estimations between the symbols are the result of the historic researching and our personal memories. Our assessment of these symbols depends on the intellect and the memory. Many pieces are in permanent change, experiencing a transformation tied with experiences and memories. Others, however, enjoy the stability that history provides. This particularity creates strange situations and unanswered questions. When does a building deserve to be part of the history? What should we do with our symbols?

More than 40 years have elapsed since the end of the Spanish dictatorship. Nowadays, Franquism does not belong uniquely either to the history nor whose who lived that period. Thousands of buildings and sights are spread all over Spain. These symbols, linked to a greater or lesser extent with the dictatorship, are vestiges of a past that is slowly blearing. But they remain unalterable, physically, over time. In spite of their differences, each of them has a common aspect: they are in limbo. The limbo between whose that lived the Franco Regime and whose who has been born in freedom. For some, they are symbols that live, for other they already were born dead.
