Alberto Vaccarezza


Alberto Vaccarezza

Bartolomé Ángel Venancio Alberto Vaccarezza (1886–1959) was an Argentine poet and playwright.

Vaccarezza was born in Buenos Aires on April 1, 1886. He is usually credited as the foremost exponent of the sainete genre, having written its most popular play, "El Conventillo de La Paloma" ("La Paloma"'s conventillo). He was a friend and collaborator of Carlos Gardel, and pronounced his eulogy when Gardel was enterred at La Chacarita Cemetery.

Besides his literary activities, he presided over "Argentores" (the national playwright guild) and "Casa del Teatro" ("House of Theater", a beneficent organization that hosts empoverished retired actors).

He died in Buenos Aires, on August 6, 1959.
