Photographer's Note

Details of the façade of Casa Rosada (Pink House), seat of the Argentinian government. I tried to put together in this photo several homeland symbols of Argentina, especially the national flag and the statue of General José de San Martín, revolutionary leader who fought for the country's independence and who is considered one of America's main Liberators because of his contribution to self-determination of a large part of Latin America.

The statue is located in the Plaza de Mayo, named after the May Revolution, which took place between 18 and 25 May 1810 and was the first successful revolt in the independence process of South America. The result was the removal of the then viceroy and the establishment of a local government, the Primera Junta (First Assembly), beginning the Argentinian War of Independence, which culminated on July 9, 1816, when a formal declaration of independence was issued. The photo was taken exactly on July 9, when this event is celebrated.
