Estatua de Astor Piazzola, Mar del Plata

Give a nod to a major figure in tango and traditional Argentinian music at Estatua de Astor Piazzola. The statue pays tribute to the eminent tango arranger and composer Astor Piazzolla, whose instrument of choice was the bandoleon--a wind instrument that resembles an accordion. Pay special attention to the intricately carved details on the instrument itself, sculpted as if Piazzolla himself was in motion. Spend some time relaxing on the picturesque plaza or by the fountain when you go.

  • I think that it deserves to illuminate the work: in the night: passes unnoticed. A pity. With little investment, you could point out one of the maximum exponents of our culture

  • Impeccable work, very good choice of the place where I locate it is, metres from the fountain of water dancers. A pasadita and some pictures worth.
