Closely linked to the Sobrarbe comarca, Conte was also a teacher at the L’Aínsa Secondary School. His work stood out in the world of history, ethnography, music, and language studies. The publication of his collection of poems No deixez morir a mía voz (‘Do not let my voice die’), in 1972, was a milestone in the contemporary vindication and cultivation of Aragonese. In 2009 he was awarded the Medal for Cultural Merit by the Aragon Government.
Within the AAL, Conte was director of the Aragonese Institute since 2021. He chaired the work of the Spelling Commission, which led to the approval of the current normative orthography of Aragonese.
