La Boca, 2017

On the initiative of the La Boca foundation, the reopening of the Nicolás Avellaneda transporter bridge with new infrastructure and lighting was the perfect occasion to hold another international congress to stimulate the process of submitting the joint bid for transnational World Heritage status for the 8 bridges, begun four years before. Thus, alongside a busy programme of talks and lectures and a host of parallel activities (exhibitions, tours, visits to the Riachuelo and so on), the necessary steps were taken to achieve this status.
