Escultura en el cementerio

On July 28, 1947 died Celedonio Flores, one of the greatest poets who took the tango.
He was 50 years and suffered a heart attack at his home in Palermo (Buenos Aires).
He had been a featherweight boxer with the nickname Kid Cele.
At 18 he received a prize of $ 5 for the verse “For the look” in a poetry lunfardo contest organized by the newspaper Last Time.
Gardel released five years later at the Empire Theatre with music by guitarist José Ricardo under the title Margot.
Many of his works were written in the Café Tortoni napkins.
