Havana, August 12 (RHC) –- A photo exhibit on Fidel Castro, inaugurated this evening at Havana’s Revolution Square, marks the 88th birthday of the Cuban Revolution leader and allows visitors to meet a world statesman, said exhibit author Roberto Chile.
“This is a set of photos that were taken in 2010, although some date back to 2005 and 2006, said Roberto Chile, noting that the exhibit will simultaneously open in Germany at Berlin’s Art Stalker Gallery.
In both places, we will also screen audiovisuals recalling important chapters of Fidel’s revolutionary work over the years and his relations with the people, Chile told reporters.
Also included in the exhibit is a bronze sculpture of a military cap with a star similar to one Fidel wore on September 28, 2010 during a ceremony for the 50th anniversary of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution community organizations.
As to the title of the exhibit, Roberto Chile said that the phrase “Fidel is Fidel” was first pronounced by President Raul Castro and it entails the core of Fidel’s personality.
