After decades spent looking abroad for solutions to their problems, Argentines are turning their gaze towards their own country and rediscovering their roots with newfound pride. Now, homegrown creativity is back on the agenda as Argentina enjoys a renaissance in food, wine, music, fashion and design. Once again, it is seen as a country of talent, style and ideas.
For many people who emigrated to Argentina to seek a better life, the country has always symbolised hope, although that hope was not always justified. But Argentines are eternally resilient survivors who are intelligent, educated, cultured and well-informed. They hope for the best, but are prepared for the worst, and meanwhile strive to live life to the full, indulging their love of culture, sport, beautiful clothes, good food, wine and personal grooming.
