Each Argentine province has its own poncho. And each of these typical symbols of argentinity has its own iconography and characteristics.
In order to better understand the atavíos that make up all poncho, here is a small description of the main parts of a traditional one.
With regard to Santa Fe, several historians have theorized about the province's relationship with the very origin of gaucho. Some argue that the practice of vaquería had its first Argentine expressions in santafesino soil. This would give rise, as early as the seventeenth century, to what we would later call gaucho .
Today, Argentine provinces that preserve typical objects and clothing , such as Salta, have exciting stories related to their poncho. This is not so the case of Santa Fe. We do know that, in terms of its color, ours is characterized by being blue. They complete their design a red guard and white fringes, as presented in the colors of the Santafesino banner.
Two pearls associated with Santa Fe and the history of the poncho. One of them is the particular Brotherhood of the “Order of Poncho”. The other, a little-known national tradition, which brings together gauchos from all over the country in Rosario .
Starting with the Order of Poncho, we are talking about an organization created by a Santafesino . Dr. Rodolfo Amadel Borzone, who had this original idea with Salteño Juan Carlos Dávalos. The Order of the poncho began with the “emponchamiento” of Jacinto Benavente and Lola Membrives, subsequently incorporating illustrious personalities among whom Benito stand out Quinquela Martin, Emilia Bertole, Alfredo Bufano, Arthur Capdevilla, Atahualpa Yupanqui , Jaime Davalos, Manuel De Falla, Fernando Fader , Federico Garcia Lorca, Ricardo Guiraldes and Lopez Buchardo. More here in time, Carlos Menem, Diego Degano, Luis Landriscina and René Araoz.
In line with the national celebrations for Flag Day , a special gauchesca meeting takes place on June 20, in Rosario. They arrive, to the great city of the interior of Santa Fe, gauchos from all over Argentina. There, they show their typical costumes and their camperas skills. Ponchos , hats and panchos are the center of the meeting.
The hosts, the citizens of Santa Fe, wear in their dress the colors of the provincial flag: blue, white and red.
Little press has this unique “congress”. I mean, if we consider that this is a special opportunity where, among other things, we can learn more about the characteristics of ponchos in each Argentine region.
