History does not follow an upward and upright course; It is full of ruptures, turns, curves, falls and precipices. According to this logic, Panama has had great periods, followed by others of lesser luster, reflects the historian Alfredo Castillero Calvo.

‘I want Panamanians to see the history of Panama as I see it. Important, universalist and surprising cultural richness. Although it was not until 1903 that we became an independent state, we had long been a country with the necessary identity traits that give shape and sustenance to a nation, “says the visiting professor at Yale universities, Stanford. and Notre Dame, among others.

The tribute made this week by his colleagues at the University of Panama was the opportunity for Castillero to convey that vision with which he tries to give the Panamanians a sense of cohesion and pride. There he dictated his lecture Theater, books and show in the baroque panama, before an audience of more than 100 family and friends – despite being 6 in the afternoon in one of the busiest places in the world.
