El torito de mataderos y…Julio Cortazar


A family is lunching under a mural making a tribute o “El torito de Mataderos”. The “bull of Mataderos” (Matadors is a Buenos Aires typical neighborhood), Justo Suarez was a popular Argentine light weight boxer who died at 29 years old. His huge popularity was widely greater than his professional achievements as a fighter. Suárez was the first sportsman that became an idol, having gained popularity in Argentina during the decade of the 1930s. Julio Cortazar dedicated him a tale: “Torito”. Buenos Aires.
