he Argentine writer Juan Sasturain sought to describe Diego in one of his works: “Diego, like Argentina, is always a surprise for us. Argentines are apocalyptic, but they possess a survival reserve, which is closely related to the way this country was created. (…) What can be said about Diego can also be said about the country. They are always on the brink of the abyss, or on the abyss itself. Yet, in time, they resuscitate and now there is a wonderful horizon ahead. We have always been like that”.
Hector Negro, Rodolfo Braceli, Osvaldo Soriano, Eduardo Sacheri, or Eduardo Galeano are only a few of the many authors who have immortalized Diego in their works. Maradona left his mark not only in the world of football and of those who admired him, but also in the world of politics, in the neighborhood he grew up in, in the clubs he played for, as well as in songs and other artistic expressions. With all that in mind we have designed our Maradona´s tour…a journey that takes travelers from a mythical corner to the very stadiums that he played in.
