They show restored will of the first mestizo and the mortar of their goods

The temporary exhibition hall of the Regional Historical Museum of the House where the Inka Garcilaso de la Vega lived its first years is the scene of the literary exhibition “Princes of the letters: Inka Garcilaso and Gongora ”until November 15.

The exhibition organized by the Deconcentrated Directorate of Culture of Cusco, in alliance with the University of Córdoba, the Nauta Institute and the Luis de Góngora Chair, was inaugurated on Tuesday, September 17 by the director of the cultural entity, Fredy Escobar Zamalloa and was attended by the main local authorities and the curator of the literary exhibition Luis Palacios Domínguez, as well as the vice consul of Spain Carlos Somocurcio.

In the literary exhibition, through infographics, the audience can learn that at the end of the 16th and first decades of the 17th, in Cordoba, Spain, two exceptional figures stood out: mestizo Gómez Suarez de Figueroa, Inka Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616), and the poet Luis de Góngora y Argote (1567-1627).

The literary exhibition aims to reveal the true scope of the bonding that both writers maintained, for 25 years through manuscript and printed period documents, as well as charting a tour of their family relationships, but above all, their relationship and literary trajectory.

The exhibition includes several facsimile documents of great value, among them the newly restored testament of the Inca and the stock of their goods, whose discovery is made known.

The itinerary of the exhibition runs through a score of panels that facilitate the understanding of the fortunate encounter that took place between two leading geniuses: Garcilaso and Gongora, whose remains rest under the same roof: the one that covers the ships of the Mosque –Cathedral of Córdoba.

From the Deconcentrated Directorate of Culture of Cusco, a cordial invitation is extended to the population to attend this important literary exhibition “Princes of the Letters: Inca Garcilaso y Góngora”, which is exhibited until November 15, from 08:00 in the morning until 5:00 in the afternoon, in the temporary exhibition hall of the Regional Historical Museum of the Casa del Inca Garcilaso de la Vega.
