30/4/77

30th of April 2017, 40 years from the first march organized the 30th of April 1977 by the mothers of the “Plaza de Mayo” in Buenos Aires in front of the Casa Rosada presidential palace, while trying to learn what had happened to their children, in public defiance of the government’s state terrorism intended to silence all opposition. For the mothers, their disappeared daughters and son are still alive… Buenos Aires. Argentina, April 2017. © Luca Bonacini.

Mexicans come from Aztecs, Peruvians from Incas, Argentinians…from the boats

“The Mexicans come from the Aztecs, the Peruvians from the Incas, and the Argentinians…from the boats.” said once the Mexican poet Octavio Paz talking about the essence of the origin of the Argentinian nation.
Aside from 16th century Spanish colonisation, Argentina’s most significant influx of settlers arrived from Europe – mainly from Spain and Italy – coinciding with the definitive constitution of the state in 1880.
Argentine rulers intended the country to welcome productive immigration, although selectively; and Article 25 of the 1853 Constitution says: ‘The Federal Government will encourage European immigration, and it will not restrict, limit or burden with any taxes the entrance into Argentine territory for foreigners who come with the goal of working the land, improving the industries and teaching the sciences and the arts”.
