Gavito’s dance shoes at the National Museum of Tango

Shoes, cologne, cufflinks of Carlos Gavito. Click to enlarge

Letter from Buenos Aires
By Beatriz Dujovne

There are many treasures in this museum. The typewriter where Catulo Castillo wrote his glorious poetry, the bandoneon play by our beloved Anibal Troilo, historic publications, recordings, and memorabilia of all kinds.

Knowing that Gavito has a place in the heart of many in the Chicago area, I took pictures of his shoes, cologne, and cufflinks guarded at the museum. (Photos to come.)
