Garden of the Righteous in Mar del Plata

The first Garden of the Righteous in South America

On Friday 8th September, at 2pm local time, the first Garden of the Righteous in South America was established in Mar del Plata, in the province of Buenos Aires. The inaugural event has a deep symbolic meaning, since it was held just over a month from the Argentinian presidential elections, in the middle of a pressing social and economic crisis occurring in a country where even the terrible inheritance of the many desaparecidos has become a topic of pre-electoral dispute. The Garden arises in one of the most stunning views of the coastal city of Mar del Plata, in the middle of the Plazoleta dedicated to Astor Piazzola. It is promoted by the Gariwo Foundation, alongside the Municipalidad de General Pueyrreden of Mar del Plata and the association Casa D’Italia. Silvia Ana Filler, Maria del Carmen "Coca" Maggi, Claudio Hugo "Pocho" Lepratti, Pierantonio Costa, Armin T. Wegner e Aristide de Sousa Mendes are the first Righteous to be honored in the Garden.
