ADELAIDA (2017)

Toma directa - SOOC


Adelaida y Roberto nacieron en 1931. Ella en Casilda, Santa Fé y él en Basilea, Suiza. Con tan solo 5 años Roberto llegó junto a su familia a San Carlos de Bariloche, y en ese mismo instante supo que ese era su lugar. En 1946 partió hacia Casilda para estudiar agronomía, sin saber que a los pocos días conocería a Adelaida. Varios meses después iniciaron su noviazgo y en 1952 se casaron. Adelaida conocía Bariloche solo por fotos y Roberto le había dicho que era “un lugar muy hermoso con un lago muy grande”. Luego de la luna de miel, dejando a su familia y amigos, Adelaida arribó a ese pequeño pueblo patagónico (10.000 habitantes), en pleno invierno, vistiendo pollera y zapatos de taco. Tuvieron tres hijos y luego llegaron nueve nietos (yo soy uno de ellos) y dos bisnietos. Hoy, sesenta y cinco años después, Roberto ya partió, pero Adelaida lo trae al presente en cada instante.

Adelaida and Roberto were born in 1931. She in Casilda (Argentina) and he in Basel (Switzerland). At 5 years of age, Roberto and his family  moved to San Carlos de Bariloche (Patagonia, Argentina), and he immediately realized it was his place in the world. He went to Casilda to study Agronomy in 1946, without knowing that a few days later he would meet Adelaida. A few months later they began their courtship and in 1952 they got married. Adelaida only knew Bariloche from the photos Roberto had showed her saying that it was "a very beautiful place with a very large lake". After their honeymoon, leaving her family and friends in Casilda, Adelaida arrived to Bariloche (10,000 inhabitants) in the middle of winter wearing a skirt and heels. They had three children, nine grandchildren (including me) and two great-grandchildren. Sixty-five years later Roberto has already passed away but Adelaida brings him to the present at every moment.
