Eusebio Leal Spengler: “La Habana Vieja en el siglo XXI”




Entrevista concedida por el Historiador de la Ciudad de La Habana a Eric Schmidt, presidente ejecutivo de Google, durante el evento Talks at Google en ocasión de la más reciente visita de Leal a Nueva York. La empresa norteamericana estrenó en 2016 un documental de realidad virtual titulado “Nuestro Martí”, sobre la vida del Héroe Nacional cubano, sumándose al proyecto liderado por la Oficina del Historiador, con el patrocinio del Museo del Bronx, para trasladar a La Habana este 2017 una réplica de la estatua de José Martí emplazada en el Parque Central de esa urbe estadounidense.

   

As the official Historian of the City of Havana, Dr. Leal is in charge of the restoration and administration of Old Havana, a UNESCO world heritage site. Shortly after Google signed our first commercial agreement with Cuba, we premiered a virtual reality documentary, titled “Nuestro Martí” on the life of Cuba’s national hero, José Martí and launched the Cuban Arts & Culture platform. Dr. Leal is not only the film’s narrator, but also an expert on Martí, the history of Cuba, and the relationship between the US and Cuba.
Dr. Leal discusses how Martí built bridges between the US and Cuba well before the two countries’ recent rapprochement and how his legacy has inspired his own work in preserving Cuba’s past to share with the world.
Event moderated by Alphabet's Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt.
