The Governor of Santa Fe, Maximiliano Pullaro, headed the opening of the “Messi Space” at the Santa Fe Sports Museum, located in the southern area of ​​Rosario. This is an initiative with which the Government of Santa Fe pays tribute to the best footballer in the world and captain of the national football team who was born and lived part of his childhood very close to the Museum’s facilities.

Accompanied by the Minister of Culture, Susana Rueda, and by the Minister of Government and Public Innovation, Fabián Bastia, Pullaro said that “the Sports Museum is wonderful. It surprises those who come to visit it because of the quality of what we have built, as a State policy, to showcase Santa Fe athletes and now it is even more important with this new innovative experience that is the Messi Space.”

Along these lines, the Governor explained that “a ball and a golden boot are on display, original trophies donated to us by our captain, the pride of Rosario, the Province, the country and the world. We are also exhibiting a replica of the World Cup, a model of the neighborhood where Lionel lived and replicas of the national team jerseys worn by the star in the 2008 Olympic Games, the 2021 Copa América and the 2022 World Cup final. In turn, we are preparing multimedia devices to learn more about his life.”

Regarding the donation from Messi and his family, Pullaro said he was “happy and proud to have these objects that were so important in Lionel’s life and now, in this Museum, anyone who wants to can come and see them and enjoy them.”

For her part, the Minister of Culture, Susana Rueda, mentioned that “the Espacio Messi will open its doors to enjoy the Winter in Santa Fe and then it will be able to continue being visited because this will surely attract more tourism to Rosario. This Museum is located a few blocks from where Lionel Messi was born and of course it needed a tribute of the quality and magnitude that the best soccer player in the world deserves. For us it is an honor to be able to make this available.”

The proposal devised by the Provincial Government through the Ministry of Culture aims to pay tribute to the captain of the Argentine football team. The space, located in the basement of the Museum, immerses the spectator in the world of emotions and achievements that defined the career of the world star, leaving an indelible mark on the history of sport.
