Guess which country is the Monument to la Coima

For 30 Lucas I give you a hint... Although I don't think you need much help guessing anything like coima in this blessed country.

As we are
Monumento a “la coima”

It was obvious. Thanks to an investigation by journalist Luis Gasulla (with the collaboration of Juan Parrilla of Infobae), focused on his book “El negocio político de la obra pública”, we discovered that the only monument to coima is, as could not be otherwise, in Buenos Aires.

But it gets even more interesting. The statue is located in one of the angles of the former Ministry of Public Works. Screw me.

He has a hand like asking for something from behind (coima?... I imagine it would not be flowers) and a chest in the other. Even face of guilt sent him. I'll clear the message, won't I?

The story is beautiful, since, as it is also not uncommon, the author is not very clear

. It is

not included in the original plans of the building, nor in the work of many historians. Apparently, it is the work of the sculptor Troiani Troiani.

The building designed by the architect Alberto Belgrano Blanco, was built by his colleague José Hortal, National Director of Architecture in 1933. In the rush and with the payback cloak on it. Since in that year it was traced 9 de Julio Avenue, which mysteriously, had to dodge the stone giant . Does that sound familiar?

Not only does it have the record of being the first skyscraper in the city(93 meters high and 22 floors), and the place from which the first Argentine television broadcast was made. From there Evitagave her last speech to the masses, that of “renunciation”.

In May 2003, the name was changed to the Ministry of Federal Planning, Public Investment and Services. Depending on the presidencies of Néstor and Cristina, of Julio De Vido. And in 2011 the Former President inaugurated the Mural of the Mother of the Descamisados...

How rare that the building witness to the greatest corruption and corruption in the history of our beloved country, with such a well-erected statue, has such a close relationship with Peronism, isn't it?

We Argentines don't go extinct with pure fart.

El peronismo está ligado a la historia del país. El peronismo no existía cuando ya se denunciaba ( y realizaba) esta construcción. No sé si no lo leíste o es tendencioso lo que querés decir
