Santiago de Cuba pays tribute to eminent patriot Emilio Bacardi


Santiago de Cuba pays tribute to eminent patriot Emilio Bacardi

Santiago de Cuba, Aug 22 (Prensa Latina) The remarkable legacy of the first republican mayor of this city, Emilio Bacardi, is remembered today by the people of Santiago de Cuba as they are readying to celebrate his centenary on Sunday 28th.

Under the auspices of the Provincial Center of Cultural Heritage and other related institutions, the celebration began in the oldest museum in Cuba, which bears his name and becomes a temple of knowledge and spiritual exaltation.

The presentation of the book Emilio Bacardi Moreau. Of passionate Cuban humanism, by Olga Portuondo, winner of the National Prize for Social Sciences and History, is one of the most significant moments of the program, in which the foundational imprint of his wife, Elvira Cape, will also emerge.

A review by Portuondo in the Sierra Maestra newspaper alludes to the historical transcendence of Bacardi, a patriot committed to the destiny of Cubans who fought against Spanish colonialism under the orders of Maceo-Grajales and was deported for that cause.

The Historian of the City referred to the novels Doña Guiomar, Vía Crucis and Filigrana, which reflect, as well as his theatrical works, the collective conscience of Santiago, from the deepening of philosophical and humanist thought.

A fact that distinguishes Bacardi’s career is the presence of an Egyptian mummy, brought by him and Cape as a result of his trip to those places of the ancient civilization of the Nile, which arouses admiration among the people of Santiago and other Cuban and foreign visitors who come to the Museum.
