Manolo's photo

"In June 1955, my father was a Grenadier posted at the entrance of this building, the Casa Rosada (Government House) and was wounded by two bullets in the leg during the violent coup attempt that saw the Navy and Air Force drop bombs in this square in an attempt to overthrow then president Juan Perón. Many people were killed, but luckily, my father survived until this day."
