The myth of Carlos Gardel will have its own international foundation
The legacy of Gardel
Santoro said that the artist, who was at the forefront with his appearance in films of worldwide projection, was overcome by the myth that associates his surname with maximum excellence. “Are you Gardel or what do you think, Gardel? remained in the popular memory,” he plotted.
Although he had no children, his property and rights were first inherited by his mother, then by a friend and finally by a family that now sponsors that foundation to protect the legacy of the “morocho del Abasto“.
The new organization began with an important collection of Gardelian objects. This had been collected since 2006 by the Fundación Industrias Culturales Argentinas.
There are more than 42,000 objects, including more than 80 personal letters, 400 autographed photographs, personal documentation, 100 test discs and more than 1,300 that went on sale.
There are also four guitars. One of them is the one Gardel used in the filming of the movie “The Day You Want Me”. Another was owned by his master, so it is presumed that it could have been the instrument on which he learned his first chords.
In addition to planning an international expansion of the figure of the “Thrush” thanks to the participation of fans and specialists from the world, the foundation will propose that the Buenos Aires Legislature designate 2020 as the “Gardelian year”, after 130 years of the birth of the singer and 85 years of his death.
Regarding the June 24, 1935 accident at Medellín airport, Santoro commented that the organization he presides has obtained copies of the eight bodies of the file, which, still disappeared for decades, includes “revealing data on the case.”
