, Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), and Morelia. The Teatro Juárez (Juárez Theater) in Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), which he built between 1892 and 1903, is considered to be one of the finest buildings of the period. The neoclassical (Neoclassicism) exterior and neo-moorish (Moorish Revival) interior are a clear reflection of his eclectic architectural style. In 1902 he was commissioned by President Porfirio Díaz to design and build the Independence Column (El Ángel) on occasion of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence. The project, which he realised in collaboration with sculptor Enrique Alciati, was finished in 1910, the same year of the anniversary. '''Lucas Ignacio Alamán y Escalada''' (Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), October 18, 1792 – Mexico City, June 2, 1853) was a Mexican (Mexico) scientist, politician, historian and writer. He studied at the Real Colegio de Minas de la Nueva España. He frequently traveled on his credentials as a scientist and diplomat, becoming one of the most educated men in Mexico. At the outset of the war for Mexican independence (Mexican War of Independence), in September 1810, Alamán is said to have been an eyewitness of the massacre (Wiktionary:massacre) of Spanish families in his home city of Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato). This experience may have influenced his lifelong devotion to conservative politics and his nostalgia for monarchic rule (monarchy) for Mexico.

Coronado's failure to find great cities of gold and silver put an end to Spanish designs on the region for the next forty years. No other Europeans entered Arizona until the 1580s, and then they came from New Mexico, not Sonora. The fortunes being made in Zacatecas (Zacatecas, Zacatecas), Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), and San Luis Potosi were much greater than those imagined in the fantasy of Cíbola, and because of those great silver strikes, Mexico's source of prosperity remained in the south. Mariano Jiménez was born in San Luis Potosí (San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí). He studied in the Colegio de Minería in Mexico City to become a mining engineer (mine engineer). He graduated in 1804. He soon moved to Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), where he was able to follow the progress of the conspiracy led by Miguel Hidalgo that aimed to achieve the independence of Mexico from Spain. A few days after the war started, Jiménez joined Hidalgo's army and was able to rise quickly in rank until he achieved the rank of lieutenant colonel. Meanwhile the order was multiplying its foundations in Latin America and was established in Arequipa, Cuzco (Cusco), Santiago de Cuba, Puebla (Puebla, Puebla), Guadalajara (Guadalajara, Jalisco), Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), Dajaka, Vera Cruz (Veracruz, Veracruz), Havana, Santiago de Chile (Santiago, Chile), Buenos Aires and (in 1660) Guatemala la Nueva (Guatemala City). A school for poor children was connected with every hospital and the pious, devoted lives of these religious won them esteem and gratitude. They were especially admired during the plague of 1736, a fact unanimously acknowledged by the writers who describe the condition of Latin America in the eighteenth century. But this did not prevent their suppression, as well as that of all other religious, in 1820. At that time their superior-general resided in Mexico and the Bethlehemites were scattered throughout two regular provinces, that of Peru including twenty-two houses and that of New-Spain (mainly Mexico), eleven. To the ordinary religious vows they added that of caring for the sick even at the risk of their own lives. '''The Mummies of Guanajuato''' are a number of naturally mummified (mummy) bodies interred during a cholera outbreak around Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), Mexico in 1833. These mummies were discovered in a cemetery located in Guanajuato, which has made the city one of the biggest tourist attractions in Mexico. All of these mummies were disinterred between 1865 and 1958, when the law required relatives to pay a tax in order to keep the bodies in the cemetery. If the relatives could not pay this tax, they would lose the right to the burial place, and the dead bodies were disinterred. Ninety percent of the bodies in the cemetery were disinterred because their relatives did not pay the tax. However, only 2% of them were naturally mummified. The mummified bodies were stored in a building and in the 1900s the mummies began attracting tourists. Cemetery workers began charging people a few pesos to enter the building where bones and mummies were stored. This place was turned into a museum called El Museo De Las Momias, The Mummies' Museum. A law prohibiting the disinterring of more mummies was passed in 1958, but this museum still exhibits the original mummies. en Corto International Film Festival 1997 San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato) Guanajuato Mexico's largest competitive film festival. expresionencorto.com - Zabludovsky also carried out a number of works individually in the same style. Outstanding among these was the Centro Cultural Emilio O. Rabasa (1983), Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, a construction with sculptural aspects that manages faithfully to fulfil the need for both theatricality and diffusion. He also designed two multipurpose auditoriums in Celaya and Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato (1990), two theatres in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, and Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes (1991), and a convention centre in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas (1994).

No need to make any changes unless you decide to use the same reference for two citations. Anyway, a few more things: according to our own article on the PRI and what I've heard somewhere else (sorry, can't remember where), it's illegal to use the colors of the Mexican flag for political purposes, such as in a logo. That hasn't stopped the PRI, however. There should be some sort of reference to this law. Also, what text needs a check from Spanish to English? The quotes that appear to have been translated don't come with the original Spanish text, so I can't verify your translation. You mention that the flag change in 1968 was based on the Summer Olympics—was that because of the increased international attention or related to something else like the Tlatelolco massacre? Is the list of example locations of Banderas monumentales complete? I seem to recall seeing one of them in one of the cities surrounding Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato). It might have been one of the semi-monumentales ones though. One more thing—I seem to recall that there was significant debate over whether the eagle in the coat of arms should face right or left, so that might be mentioned in the history section. --Spangineer (User:Spangineer) es (:es:Usuario:Spangineer)   (háblame) (User talk:Spangineer) 02:43, 8 January 2006 (UTC) ****I do not think there was a law passed, because if that was the case, the PRI would have changed their logo. I'll check my references again. As for why the change of the flag design in 1968, I do not know why it was changed exactly due to the increased international attention or the second event you said. As for the list of the locations of the banderas monumentales, I created an article separate from this one and that one, which is at Banderas monumentales, has a full list of all of their locations. I just did not want the article to become list heavy, so I forked.

Larger offices had several different designs of handstamp in use; Mexico City used five different devices to handstamp the stamps of 1856, each with a different appearance, while the districts of Guadalajara (Guadalajara, Jalisco), Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), Puebla (Puebla, Puebla), Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro), and San Luis Potosí (San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí) each had three devices. War of Independence During the Mexican War of Independence (1810-1821), numerous mints operated, providing coins for both the supporters and opponents of the Spanish crown. The Royalist issued coins at mints in Chihuahua (Chihuahua, Chihuahua), Durango, Guadalajara (Guadalajara, Jalisco), Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), Nueva Viscaya (Nueva Vizcaya, New Spain), Oaxaca (Oaxaca, Oaxaca), Real del Catorce, San Fernando de Bexar (San Antonio, Texas), San Luis Potosí (San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí), Sombrerete, Valladolid Michoacán (Morelia) and Zacatecas (Zacatecas, Zacatecas). Most Royalist issues were similar in style to the earlier colonial issues from the Mexico City mint with no new denominations issed. 200px thumb right Juan Carlos Romero Hicks (Image:Juan Carlos Romero Hicks.jpg) '''Juan Carlos Romero Hicks''' (b.

Benghazi

in the early part of the 20th century. Some examples of Italianate, as well as modernist colonial architecture from this period remain today. Under the governorships of Generals Ernesto Mombelli and Attilio Teruzzi in the 1920s, the buildings commissioned in Benghazi had an eclectic architectural language that embodied a Western conception of Eastern architecture. An example of this is the Municipal palace (Benghazi Municipal Hall) built in 1924, which stands in Maydan al-Hurriya (Freedom Square). The building combines Moorish (Moorish Revival) arches with Italianate motifs on the facade. Italians even did the first architectural plan of Benghazi. "Italian Urban Plan of Benghazi". in the 1930s, with a new railway station (Italian Libya Railways) and promenade. The largest colonial building from this Italian period is the Benghazi Cathedral in Maydan El Catedraeya (Cathedral Square), which was built in the 1920s and has two large distinct domes. McLaren, Brian L. (2006). ''Architecture and Tourism in Italian Colonial Libya – An Ambivalent Modernism''. University of Washington Press (Seattle, Washington (Washington (state))). p. 158. ISBN 978-0-295-98542-8. Benghazi was heavily bombed during World War II, and so the majority of buildings in the city are examples of modern or contemporary architecture. The central business district was built mostly in the 1960s and 1970s with Libya's new found oil wealth. The highest building in Benghazi is the Tibesti Hotel on Gamal Abdel Nasser Street built in 1989. Another prominent example of modern architecture in Benghazi is the Da'wah al-Islamiyah Building, which has a series of distinctive cubes piled in the shape of a pyramid. Important colonial buildings designed during Italian rule include the Berenice Cinema (currently under renovation) which was designed Marcello Piacentini and Luigi Piccinato in 1928. commons:بنغازي

Warsaw

for the most part perished during the war, making Warsaw an important place of Holocaust remembrance. Today, Warsaw is a bustling metropolis and one of the European Union's fastest-developing capitals and the Union's ninth most populous urban centre. It boasts a mixture of new and old in its eclectic architectural mix, and is constantly changing. While quite sprawling, it is quite easy to navigate for tourists thanks to a good public transit system, and most important sights are quite close to each other. There is no shortage of accommodation options and a wide choice of restaurants and bars. Warsaw's nightlife is also on a rebound, and a reborn cafe culture has taken over the city. There is a large variety of museums, galleries and other tourist attractions, and there is always something happening throughout the year.

Germany

was finished in 1860. The style reflects the artistic interests of the Archduke, who was acquainted with the eclectic architectural styles of Austria, Germany and England. The craftsman Franz Hofmann and his son, Julius, were entrusted with the furnishing and decorations. Hofmann, who worked in the city of Trieste, was a skilful artisan who was willing to follow Maximilian’s suggestions. Both the artisan and his patron had a similar cultural formation and they were well acquainted with the eclectic tendencies of the time. In 1968, Hopkins recorded the album ''Free Form Patterns'' backed by the rhythm section of psychedelic rock band (band (music)) the 13th Floor Elevators. Through the 1960s and into the 1970s Hopkins released one or sometimes two albums a year and toured, playing at major folk (folk music) festivals (music festival) and at folk clubs and on college campuses in the U.S. (United States) and internationally. He travelled widely in the United States, and overcame his fear of flying to join the 1964 American Folk Blues Festival; visit Germany and the Netherlands 13 years later; and play a six-city tour of Japan in 1978.
