Do you know the Casa Rosada?

Chapter 12 - Salon of Argentine Scientists of the Bicentennial: Originally called the Salon of Diplomats.


Chapter 12: Bicentennial Argentine Scientists Show 

It is one of the few areas that retain the configuration of the first Government Palace, at the end of the 19th century.

It is located on the first floor on the west façade overlooking   Plaza de Mayo   .  Through its double-leaf doors, you can access one of the two lodges of the Palace that was the scene of important events. Among others, it was here that  Juan Domingo  Perón  last   appeared in public, where  Pope John Paul II  blessed the Argentine people during his visit in 1982, where the football team greeted after winning the  1986 World Cup   and where the  President    Mauricio Macri   celebrated the beginning of his term of office.

Originally called  Salón de los Diplomats , it is one of the few areas that retain the configuration of the first  Government Palace , at the end of the 19th century. This show was recovered and transformed into a space of tribute to men and women from the  Argentine Republic  who stood out in scientific activity.

On the walls, the photographs of  Emma Pérez Ferreira, Florentino Ameghino, Gregorio Klimovsky, José Antonio Balseiro, Jorge Alberto Sábato, Manuel Sadosky, Francisco Pascasio Moreno, Ramón Carrillo, Rebeca Gerchsman, René Gerónimo  Favaloro  and Salvador Mazza . There are also three   Nobel Prizes : Bernardo Alberto Houssay, Luis Federico Leloir and César Milstein. 

Also included is the portrait of Dr.  Carlos Saavedra Lamas , first Argentine and Latin American citizen awarded the  Nobel Peace Prize (1936).
