Cuba to celebrate Hemingway’s birthday at Finca Vigia

Posted March 26, 2007 by publisher in Cuba Culture.

Cuba will carry out a series of activities to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Finca Vigia Museum, housed in the former residence of US author Ernest Hemingway in Havana.

The festivities will run from April to July 21, on the 108th birthday of the 1952 Literature Nobel Prize winner.

As part of that initiative, a lecture will be given on the restoration of Finca Vigia, whose project has been nominated for the National Monument Restoration Award, while another lecture on Hemingway’s love of fishing and music is scheduled for May.

The 11th International Colloquium on Ernest Hemingway will open in late June, when the cartoon “The Old Man and the Sea”, by Russian moviemaker Alexander Petrov, will be shown.

Experts from the United States, Argentina, Spain and Japan, among other countries, are expected to attend the colloquium.

Cuba will be represented by Lisandro Otero, president of the Cuban Academy of the Spanish Language, and writers Enrique Cirules and Leonardo Padura, among other intellectuals.
