Alvaro Noboa shares a heartful speech about the cultural tribute made to his father.
In memory of his father…
“Culture is the patrimony of the people and constitutes an essential component of its identity.”
Based on this concept, which is universal, Álvaro Noboa considered that the best tribute that he could make to his father was to establish the museum that carries his name and to put his private collection on display, with the objective of sharing it with citizens both of the country and from abroad who visit the city of Guayaquil and, at the same time, promote and encourage the talent and creativity of our artists.
