Mafalda arrived in Barranco: where can you see and take photos with the iconic character?
“As always: what is urgent does not leave time for what is important,” says the little girl. Mafalda in one of his most famous vignettes. The most popular character of the Argentine cartoonist Joaquín Salvador Lavado Tejón, better known as Quino, appeared for the first time in 1964 and since then he has traveled around the world, so that it can appreciate his insight and ingenuity, his concerns about life and his criticisms. biting
Peru has not been immune to the genius of the protests Mafaldaso from Thursday, September 21, a statue will be permanently installed in his honor on block two of Sáenz Peña Boulevard, in the Barranco district.
The sculpture is work of the Argentine sculptor Pablo Irrgang and it was specially commissioned by the Argentine Embassy, so the figure is identical to those found in the neighboring country, only that the one that will be in Argentina will wear a dress and a bow of the golden yellow color that identifies the flags of the Lima districts.
Its location is not a product of chance, since this boulevard is named in honor of Roque Saénz Peña, a lawyer and former Argentine president who participated in the Peruvian troops in the war with Chile. In addition, this walk is divided into two sectors by the monument of General José de San Martín, another symbol of Peruvian-Argentine friendship.
Not far away, in addition, there is also the Gardel Square with a bust in homage to the famous tango singer from the River Plate, for which Mafalda thus consolidates a truly Argentine circuit in Barranco.
This Mafalda sculpture will be the eighth of its kind in the world and the fourth outside of Argentina. The first of them was installed in 2009 in the San Telmo neighborhood of the city of Buenos Aires, on the corner of where Quino lived for many years.
It quickly became a mecca of attraction for tourists and since then, Pablo Irrgang created new versions for Mendoza (Argentina), San Salvador de Jujuy (Argentina), Mar de Cobo (Argentina), Oviedo (Spain), Santa Coloma de Gramanet (Spain) and Baruta (Venezuela).
Furthermore, this year marked 50 years since the last publication of Mafalda, whose last strip appeared on June 25, 1973 in the Weekly “Siete Días Ilustrados”, making the occasion an excellent opportunity to celebrate its ever-present legacy.
The installation of this small statue is a joint initiative of the Embassy of the Argentine Republic in Peru and the Municipality of Barranco, thanks to the support of the Argentine companies Pluspetrol and Haug SA and with the support of Aloft Lima Miraflores Hotel.
