La ciudad del trabajo (City of work)

The Universidad Laboral de Gijón, initially intended to be an orphanage for the children of dead miners, ended up being a symbolic monument of the Francoist regime. An enormous construction intended for self-sufficiency, in which to impart a technical education to the future workers in accordance with the desired national character. Remains of a time whose dominance has left an indelible mark on Spanish culture.

L’Universidad Laboral de Gijón, inizialmente destinata a orfanotrofio per i figli dei minatori deceduti, è diventata un monumento simbolo del regime franchista. Rovine di un’epoca il cui predominio ha lasciato un segno indelebile nella cultura spagnola.
