Meet Marquez in Moscow Metro

Moscow metro will launch a special version of the "Poetry in Metro" train, dedicated to selected works from Gabriel García Marquez.

      Starting from April 25, a specially decorated train will do the rounds in Moscow’s Metro for six months, giving passengers an opportunity to read fragments from Marquez’s best-known works, as well as some rare unpublished verses.

       The initiative came from the Colombian Ambassador, Rafael Amador, who proposed to dedicate it to the 85th anniversary of the Nobel Prize-winning author’s birth. This metro project is only a part of a series of cultural events, included in "Gabriel Garcia Marquez Year in Russia 2012". The Moscow Metro also plans to release special tickets to honor the Colombian author.

      Ceremonial startup of the train will be held on April 25, at 11 am (Moscow time), at the Mezhdunarodnaya metro station. Then the trian will be running on Filevskaya (blue or 4) line without any strict schedule.

      Poetry in the Metro project has already made several special projects, dedicated to different authors. In 2010, the train featured verses by authors from Chile including Pablo Neruda and Gabriela Mistral. 2011 was a year of Italian literature, with Dante Alighieri and Francesco Petrarca metro exhibitions.
