LIMITED EDITION OF 1,000. This series of essays provides an alternative look at the cultural patrimony of Buenos Aires. Instead of discussing architecture or artifacts, authors such as José Maria Peña, Liliana Barela, Ana Maria Cousillas and Eduardo Vázquez analyze the different reactions of the public to certain types of exhibits, the legislation put into place to protect this historic patrimony and case studies on the restoration of museum collections and architectural patrimony.
