In 1999, Gilberto Valladares Reina, pet name Papito, gets a license to start a small private hair salon at home. He lives in Santo Ángel, a run-down neighborhood in Old Havana. Papito cuts and cuts, but he also collects, antique hairdressing supplies and art. And he gathers people around him and he connects.

Papito starts a unique project

Arte Corte is typically Cuban. The project is officially recognized as a Local Development Community Non-profit Organization. With the revenues, a training course has been started, where (underprivileged) young people from the neighborhood are trained at a significant level. The neighborhood revives. Santo Angel gets color on its cheeks again.
Arte Corte’s goals increase every day and are focused on the social, cultural, ecological and economic development of the neighborhood of the Holy Angel (Santo Ángel).
You can see all this during a guided walk. 

Obama mentioned Papito in his speech. In March 2016 he was the first American president to visit the island since 1928.

Check in the mirror of the American vintage car if your hair is still in place, and then we'll leave for a car cruise through Havana's beautiful other neighborhoods.
