Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner inaugurated the Cultural Center of the Bicentennial
President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner officially opened the Bicentennial Cultural Centre, which will operate in the former Central Post Office building on Avenida Leandro N. Alem and Corrientes.
The President arrived at the scene with her husband Nestor Kirchner, and will be their only public appearance of the day, and while all attention is focused on the reopening of the Colon Theater, she will not attend the show.
The President was received at the central hall by models dressed in different times of Argentina, including one who wore a replica of a dress from Evita.
There was presented the sample of the Revolutionary May, the artist Ariel Mlynarzewicz, which portrays the lives of ten characters of the independence.
The President said after seeing the exhibition of postage stamps that “I did not know that postage stamps commemorating a person or an event are from Argentina, the world copied us.”
And added, “Then they imitated us or falsified us somewhere” and that “This place has a very important value, Nestor’s father was treasurer of mail and always came to this place. He knows it very well.”
