Exhibition to honor Jose Marti in Italy (+Photo)

Rome, Jan 24 (Prensa Latina) On the occasion of National Hero Jose Marti's 170th birthday, the Cuban Embassy in Italy inaugurated an exhibition on Tuesday until January 27, consisting of paintings inspired by the hero.

As part of the events organized on that historic date, Cuban Ambassador to Italy Mirta Granda referred to the transcendence of Marti’s thinking, as an independence advocate and fervent promoter of Latin American unity.

The Cuban Ministry of Culture and the National Museum of Fine Arts, which contributed to the selection and shipment of the paintings, supported the diplomtic mission’s initiative, Gabriela Gámez, an official at the cultural office of the Cuban Embassy here, told Prensa Latina.

Among paintings are reproductions of artworks by outstanding Cuban painters Federico Edelman, Carlos Enriquez, Nelson Dominguez, Pedro Pablo Oliva, Aldo Soler, Manuel Lopez, Alberto Peña, Jorge Arche, Alejandro Cueli, and Esterio Segura.

The community of Cuban residents in Italy paid tribute to Martí with the screening of a video at the Embassy’s theater, where some Cuban residents sang Marti’s verses while children from the diplomatic mission recited the poem “Cultivo una rosa blanca” (I Cultivate a White Rose).
