In fact, it was precisely at the beginning of the century that this strong bond was created between Massa and Mar de Plata, consolidated with the discovery of the maestro's origins. It's a link between two strikingly different places: a small village with stone houses and cobblestone streets versus a large modern city located between the Pampas and the ocean. However, these two places meet in the history of emigration.
Even today, in the village of Massa Sassorosso you can breathe in Argentine air. In every corner, you can feel the presence and energy of the Master as you walk through the "Paseo", the exhibition path dedicated to him where, thanks to the Parco Appennino nel Mondo project and the Fundación Astor Piazzolla in Buenos Aires, you can admire the permanent exhibition of photos that detail his life: from his origins in Garfagnana to his childhood in Mar del Plata, including his successes and the great love story with his wife Laura Escalada Piazzolla. Laura Piazzola was a guest and sponsor in Massa Sassorosso for two inaugural events held in 2013 and 2015: for the "Largo Astor Piazzolla" when a square was dedicated to him, and for the outdoor exhibition path right in front of the church where his grandparents got married.
