Chapter 16 - The President's Office: During the Sáenz Peña government, this space was the presidential dining room. In 1946, it was transformed into the office of the Head of State.
The chair of the presidential desk was put into use during Julio Argentino Roca 's first presidency. It is made of walnut wood decorated with the technique of gilding to the leaf. Originally, it was embroidered velvet; now, it is upholstered in celestial blue. It was acquired at the Casa Forest in Paris in the late 19th century, and has since been used by all the presidents.
In the imaginary of Argentines, the myth circulates that the presidential chair is the one used by Bernardino Rivadavia . Actually, the expression “ Rivadavia armchair ” is a way of alluding to the president's office. The oldest armchair is exhibited at the Casa Rosada Museum, belonged to Santiago Derqui , who ruled for a brief period between 1860 and 1861.
In the center of the living room, between the mirrors, we find the old home of the dining room surrounded by a refined work of boiserie , also present on the walls, doors and windows.
When the President is in the House, two grenadiers guard the entrance to the office.
The presidential elevator is located in the anteroom leading to the sector where the offices of the Prime President are located. Its walls, ceiling and seat are carved oak with marquetry. The National Shield stands out on each of the mirrors and an important chandelier made of gilded bronze and crystal. According to oral tradition, it was a gift that the Infanta Isabel de Borbón gave to the Government Palace when she visited our country on the occasion of the centenary of the May Revolution in 1910.
