Che's birthplace to display statue

May 28, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Ernesto "Che" Guevara has returned to Buenos Aires, his defiant expression immortalized in a bronze statue.

Guevara left the capital in 1953 to travel the continent and join the Cuban Revolution, becoming a political icon.

Now, after a tour of Buenos Aires, a 3-ton, 13-foot bronze replica of his image will tower over a plaza in the town of Rosario, his birthplace, topped with his famed starred beret.
