Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel supports the call of the intellectual Graziella Pogolotti to identify, recognize and defend the heritage of the Caribbean nation.

The president showed his support for Pogolotti's proposal with the publication on Twitter of a phrase inserted in the opinion article "Habaneridad" in Sunday's edition of Juventud Rebelde newspaper.

"Graziella Pogolotti rightly summons us: The Revolution has also founded heritage. You have to identify it, recognize it and defend it," said Diaz-Canel on his official Twitter account.

Recalling the important passages of her life at the time of the triumph of the Revolution, Graziella Pogolotti addresses the history of the ceramic mural of the sculptor Amelia Peláez located on the Hotel Habana Libre, which is now undergoing restoration.

In the article, the leading intellectual recognizes that heritage values ​​are not reduced to those inherited from ancient times, but that the Revolution has also founded them, and called attention to the need to identify, recognize and defend them.

Graziella Pogolotti currently serves as president of the Advisory Council of the Minister of Culture, vice president of the Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba, and is a member of the Cuban Academy of Languages.
