Irving Berlin recalled that the historic center is the site where “La Noche Blanca” operates, but it is the contribution of citizens, civil groups, and artists that have allowed it to remain an inclusive and noble project.
He also extended the invitation to attend to Mérida’s museums to contemplate innovative, creative projects, including new disciplines, proposals, and artistic projects.
