The Revolution Room, located in the Provincial Museum of History “La Periquera” of the city of Holguín, will be reopened on November 25 as part of the posthumous tribute to the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.
This activity will also include a gala to remember the historic figure of exceptional contributions to the welfare of the people, on the occasion of the first anniversary of his physical disappearance, which occurred on November 25, 2016.
Nélida Peña, director of the institution, stressed to the ACN that among the repair actions stand out the painting, the carpentry and the electrical system, as part of an investment program to restore the neoclassical building, built in the 19th century and Declared National Monument in 1978.
In this space, she specified, images, objects and documents of Fidel's encounters with the Holguin people are exposed, from February 26, 1959, when he delivered his first speech in this eastern territory from the balconies of that installation, located in the historical Center.
The sample, said Peña, also includes the main economic and social advances of the province in more than 50 years of Revolution in sectors of health, education, sugar production and the nickel industry, among others.
In the eastern territory will also be held morning, lectures, talks and book presentations, dedicated to remembering the legacy of the leader in all spheres of Cuban society.
