Fundación Romeo’s 2016 Calendar - “Shakespeare, Theatre transforms you” - is the work of photographer Gaby Herbstein and features different Argentine celebrities, including artist Marta Minujín, journalist Jorge Lanata and actress Sabrina Garciarena. The proceeds from the sale of the calendar will be used to fund education programmes and scholarships offered by the Foundation.

British Ambassador Dr. John Freeman opened the event by welcoming all the guests. Then Patricio Orozco, Chairman of the Foundation, highlighted the importance of theatre as an essential tool to promote education.

About 100 guests attended the event, including Hernán Lombardi - Head of the Federal Public Broadcasting System, who was also one of the speakers - and some of the celebrities featured in the calendar, like news presenter and writer Cristina Pérez.
