The sad news arrived yesterday, the Master Eduardo Di Mauro died, on August 12th, 2014, in his house of Guanare, at the age of 86.

Artist of Argentinian origin, living in Venezuela, dedicating more than 30 years to the elaboration of puppets, all a life to this art, he leaves to the generations of Latin American puppeteers that succeed him, his vision of our art.

Students and who has been knowing his art would remember Eduardo Di Mauro like a man of great social sensibility, supportive and committed.

UNIMA can’t forget that he wrote the latest International Message for Puppetry Day 2014 and, as a tribute, invites you to read it again, as well the short biography written by his son, Daniel.
