The Latin Skyscraper (El Rascacielos Latino)

Watch as the mysteries surrounding the mythical Barolo Palace in Buenos Aires and its creator, Italian architect Mario Palanti, are unraveled. The director, Sebastián Schindel, wonders about the enigmatic architectural style of the building–a style that opposed the aesthetic rules of the time. Little by little, we discover the secret of the Barolo Palace: its eclectic architecture was conceived as an illustrated model of the Dante-esque cosmos detailed in The Divine Comedy. Directed by Sebastián Schindel.
