Argentines of Italian descent
Argentine anarchists Forum
Erminio Blotta was an Argentine sculptor of Italian origin.
He was born in Morano Calabro . His birth certificate records his name as Erminio Antonio Blotta Mainieri, but his Argentine identity papers have Carmen Erminio Blotta instead.
Blotta's family came to his adoptive country when he was only a child, at the beginning of 1894, during a major wave of Italian immigration to Argentina. They settled in Rosario, Santa Fe Province, about 280 km northwest of Buenos Aires. Two of his father's brothers were already living in Argentina, in the town which would then be called Lucio V. Lopez, 40 km north-west of Rosario. Blotta was the eldest of nine siblings.
