Sáenz Alonso, Mercedes

b. 1917, San Sebastián

Writer

As professor at the University of Navarre, critic and essayist, Sáenz produced voluminous essays including Don Juan y el donjuanismo (Don Juan and Donjuanism) (1969), studies on renaissance poetry, witchcraft and the Spanish novel. Her novels often portray the horrors and destruction of war, as in Bajos fondos (The Depths) (1949) and its sequel, Altas esferas (Upper Sphere) (1949), both set in London around WWI. El tiempo que se fue (Time Now Past) (1951), with greater autobiographical substrata, studies the role of war in the decline of a noble Basque family. Loss of family and spiritual values likewise inspire La pequeña ciudad (Small Town) (1952).

Sáenz de Oiza, Francisco Javier

b. 1918, Caseda (Navarre)

Architect

Even before beginning to practise, Sáenz de Oiza won the National Prize for Architecture in 1946, the year he qualified. In 1954 he won again, this time with some striking constructions to his credit. His architectural style is generally ambitious, using the idiom of modern architecture to produce uncompromisingly large-scale buildings. The tower block of the Bank of Bilbao in Madrid is one of his great successes, and other representative works are the Festival Palace of Santander (1984-91) and the head office of the Autonomous Government of Andalusia in Seville (1991-6).

Salamanca Conversations

The Conversaciones Cinematográficas de Salamanca was the name given to a conference held in that city in 1955, to discuss the much-needed revitalization of the Spanish cinema. The organizers represented a broad spectrum of opinion, ranging from the journal Objetivo, which included on its editorial staff clandestine members of the Spanish Communist Party, to the SEU (Sindicato Español Universitario), the state-sponsored student union. The fact that the participants included Catholics and members of the Falange, and that the event enjoyed official sponsorship, with the presence on the platform of dignitaries from central and provincial government and the university, gave it a moderate and pragmatic character, which did not, however, protect it later from official criticism.
