Recently, at the awards ceremony, afact happened that went almost unnoticed, but not for everyone. When Spanish actress Penelope Cruz took the stage to present the award for Best Foreign Film, the organizers of the ceremony chose a particular theme to accompany her: “ Libertango”, one of the best known pieces of the great Astor Piazzolla. What did it have to do with it? Apparently, it was a confusion, quite common in different countries, which makes one think that, if we speak Spanish, it is more or less the same if we come from Spain or Argentina. Or anywhere.
Who were lucky enough to meet other countries have encountered this situation more than once. If you realize you speak Spanish, surely you are Spanish (if you are in Europe) or Mexican (if you are in the United States). Or whatever, what difference does it make? In States United, even, generalize with the term spanishto all Those who speak Spanish, no matter where they are. As if we call them English to all those who speak English.
To those who musicalize the Oscars, in This case, you probably found Piazzolla a nice subject. AND, as Piazzolla and Penelope both speak Spanish, they must be more or less from the same country, right?
Too bad they get lost to know so many beautiful songs, so many diverse people and so many different countries for not lifting your eyes from your own navel and looking around a little bit.
