Every year in commemoration of the Cabildo Abierto on May 22, 1810, a traditional act is held with the Regiment 1 of Patricios, the honor guard of the Historical Museum of the Cabildo and the May Revolution.
The ceremony traditionally takes place on the front street of the Cabildo building and hundreds of people come to enjoy the event.
This year, despite the quarantine, the regiment called for the changing of the guard with compliance with the necessary precautionary measures.
To commemorate the week of May, the Historical Museum of the Cabildo proposed a series of virtual activities, among them, the cycle of live talks with historians, researchers and writers “Cabildo Abierto”, which began on Tuesday with Hugo Chumbita’s dissertation.

The talks are held live from the Facebook and Instagram accounts of the National Museum of the Cabildo of Buenos Aires and of the May Revolution.
