The Pilar Bayona Archive was created to hold all the documentation related to the professional and social life of Pilar Bayona.
At the death of Carmen Bayona who outlived her sister Pilar until 1996, all the family legacy was passed on to her nephews.

Her nephew Antonio Bayona and the librarian Julián Gómez began to guard and manage this documentation.

In view of all existing information, it became necessary to revise it. Although relatively well conserved, it was lacking order and needed to be catalogued, a common situation in that time as they did not have the computer technology of today. And so, the Archive developed databases about her concerts, correspondence, musical scores, press (articles and reviews), and also the photos, books and other dedicated objects, were archived.

All this labour was increased constantly with the search of documents, photographs and recordings which did not exist in the Archive, with the research on new bibliography dealing with the figure of Pilar Bayona, and with the possible attainment of documentation that other people had, with whom she had contact.

The Pilar Bayona Archive was a private Personal Archive, but from july 2017 all the collection was donated  to the Aragonese Government, who accepted it in the Aragonese Institut of Contemporary Art and Culture (IAACC), located in Pablo Serrano Museum, Saragossa. In this place you will be able to consult this documentation.
