Barolo Palace

Barolo Palace

Barolo was an Italian immigrant that came to Buenos Aires in 1890. He was the country's first cotton producer and fabric importer, in addition to having brought the first spinning machines. He met the architect Mario Palanti during the Centennial of the May Revolution. Barolo believed that the old continent would be destroyed by wars and he decided to rescue the ashes of Dante Alighieri to keep them in a building, inspired by The Divine Comedy. The poem of the Dante is divided into 3 sections: Hell,Purgatory and Hell and so is this building. When it was inaugurated it was the highest in Latin America (100 metrees) and it had its own electric power generator that supplied the entire building. It is a worthwhile visit if you stay in Buenos Aires for some days. There are guided visits to reach Heaven :)
