Isaac Sastre de Diego, new general director of Fine Arts


The Minister council names Isaac Sastre de Diego, who until now was an advisory member of the Cabinet of the Secretary General for Culture and Sports, as new general director of Fine Arts.

Sastre de Diego (Segovia, 1978) replaces Lola Jimenez-Blanco, whose resignation last week generated a great controversy around the transfer of works of art from national museums, among them, the Lady of Elche.

The new general director of Fine Arts is a civil servant -belongs to the Facultative Body of Conservators of State Museums-, was number one in his class (2016) and has a brilliant resume. He has a degree in Art History from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) and a doctorate in Prehistory and Archeology, with an outstanding qualification cum laude. He currently served as an advisory member of the Technical Office of the Secretary General for Culture and Sports, Víctor Francos.

He has previously held the position of head of the Archeology Service at the IPCE (Institute of Cultural Heritage of Spain) and various positions at the National Museum of Roman Art in Mérida. He has also been a researcher doctor of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC).

He also has postdoctoral research experience at the University of Oxford (United Kingdom), and stays at the Spanish School of History and Archeology in Rome (Italy), in Zagreb (Croatia) and in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin (Germany).

Diego Tailor is an expert, among other areas, in Heritage Cultural, Archeology and Heritage, and in Archeology and Architecture of the late Ancient and High Middle Ages.
