  • Because the question? simple, when we arrived to the square of the Cathedral of Havana we photograph with this statue if know even who he is, but then the worm's curiosity led me to Wikipedia (Google) and look at what I discovered. Antonio Gades was born in the bosom of a humble family in Elda, few months after the start of the Spanish Civil War. At the beginning of 1937, his father, Mason's profession, ready will volunteer in the Republican Army, moving in front of Madrid. A little later the family will follow you. In 1947 Antonio Gades should start work and will do so in a well-known photographic studio, on Campu "where photographs of artists of the time filled the entire wall of the dark room" and the newspaper ABC as a waiter. In 1949 it is registered at a Dance Academy, where chance would meet Pilar López Júlvez months later. This was who suggested the name of Antonio Gades, as I remember the dancers of Cadiz. Pillar will be its discoverer and admired in him the natural talent and his exquisite purity. In 1951 he joined the company. Pillar and the first dancer, Manolo Vargas, will be in charge of giving to the world of Spanish folklore in a vast repertoire. At the same time that travels all over the world, will discover her great inspiration for the creation of their own choreographies: Federico García Lorca. Interesting right?
