ABSTRACT
This article examines the public use of history and the struggles surrounding the memory of the Spanish transition, centered on the political party Podemos. The article hypothesizes that Podemos's discursive strategy has been characterized by a populist appropriation and update of the category of democratic rupture. This term emerges from the vocabulary of the anti-Francoist opposition of the mid-1970s. Its progressive recovery since the beginning of the twenty-first century has been the product of multiple factors, including historiographical reflection on revisions of the political story about rupture, and certain dynamics of its generational transmission in which the militant memory has taken part. From this hypothesis, the article addresses different narratives used by Podemos --for example, in relation to the design of their marks of identity and diagnoses for the present and future--, interpreting them as practices of counter-memory.
