Spanish politician and engineer. Sbert's father was a rear admiral of the Spanish Navy. His grandfather Juan Massanet y Ochando, had been a Conservative Senator and Deputy with Alfonso XII. His mother's brothers were Antonio Massanet y Verd, who was the bishop of Segorbe, and Andrés Massanet y Verd, an agriculturist who was the Head of the Agronomic Section of the Balearic Islands and Head Engineer in the Land Registry of Seville. Against Sbert's father desire to study Law, he continued studying Agricultural Engineering at the School of Agriculturists of Madrid. During Miguel Primo de Rivera's dictatorship, Sbert was the leader of several student movements against the dictator, for which he was expelled from the School of Engineers and exiled to Cuenca in 1925. In 1928, Sbert was the President of the School University Federation of Madrid (FUE), and in 1929 of the Federal Pro-Union Committee of Spanish Students. On March 1929, Sbert was arrested and expelled from the University. Sbert was one of the founder members of Esquerra Republicana of Catalonia, with which he was elected deputy in the 1931 Spanish general elections. Sbert was appointed member of the Court of Constitutional Guarantee and Director of the Institute of University and School Action. In 1933, he got married with Josefa Callao Mínguez. On November 1396, he signed the intellectuals manifesto in favor of the Republic. Sbert was Minister of Culture (December 1936 - April 1937), and of Governing and Social Assistance (June 1937) of the Government of Catalonia. When the Civil War ended, Sbert went into exile to France, but the Nazi invasion forced him to move to Mexico, where he represented the Government of Catalonia in exile.
