In 1946 one of the most colossal projects ever undertaken in Europe was begun: the construction of the Salime reservoir in a remote mountainous part of Asturias. Joaquín Vaquero Turcios was 22 when he arrived at the site to paint the mural in the turbine hall, a life-changing experience that marked his subsequent personal and artistic career.
