Tácitos

A reformist group, initially composed largely of former National Movement officials, which took its name from the alias Tácito, which was used to sign articles advocating political change appearing in the Catholic newspaper Ya from 1972. The group’s initial objectives did not go beyond the notion of limited concessions designed to ensure that the basic distribution of power after the end of the Franco regime would remain intact. By 1974, it incorporated some Christian Democrats not identified with the regime, and their inclusion in Adolfo Suárez’s first cabinet in 1976 enabled him to give it a more broadly reformist character. Some prominent Tácitos, such as Landelino Lavilla and Marcelino Oreja, became ministers in the first UCD government after 1977.

Tamames Gómez, Ramón

b. 1933, Madrid

Economist

A graduate both of the Complutense University of Madrid and the London School of Economics, Tamames combined a career as a professional economist and academic with political activism, mainly in the communist PCE, of which he was a member between 1956 and 1981, and which he represented in the first parliament of the restored democracy from 1977 to 1981. In the latter year, however, he was expelled from the PCE, and gradually evolved towards a more centre-right position, eventually joining the Centre Democrá-tico y Social (Social Democrat Centre) led by Adolfo Suárez. He is the author of many distinguished monographs, notably Estructura económica de España (The Economic Structure of Spain).

Tamayo, José

b. 1920, Granada

Theatrical producer

Tamayo is arguably the most successful Spanish stage producer of the second half of the twentieth century. Since 1944, when he organized Granada’s University Theatre, his stage design and management activities have gone from strength to strength, notably his pioneering work in introducing Spanish audiences to contemporary North American theatre, such as Salem’s Lot and Death of a Salesman. From 1946 onwards he was in charge of the Compañía Lope de Vega (Lope de Vega Theatre Company), which he directed in around thirty plays, and led on numerous tours around Spain and abroad, especially in South America (1949-51). For this work he received the Premio National de Teatro (National Theatre Prize) (1946, 1947). In 1954 he started his first lyrical productions, such as La
