The home of Argentine football star Diego Armando Maradona on 523 Calle Azamore in Villa Fiorito, a suburb in the south of the Argentine capital, where he spent his childhood.
The conversion of Diego Armando Maradona's house into a historic mansion was ordered by Argentine President Alberto Fernandez.
The Argentine newspaper "Ole" indicated that this house is the birthplace of Maradona, in 1960, and he lived with 5 brothers, and it was of great importance to him as it contained childhood memories.
This is the house where Maradona lived with his parents, Diego Maradona and Dalma Salvadora Franco, better known as "Don Diego" and "Dona Tota", from Esquina, Corrientes Province, where they settled with their two daughters, Ana Estella and Rita Mabel, Diego's older sisters.
Villa Fiorito is a poor neighborhood that grew at the rate of internal migration in the middle of the last century, and in one of the clay courts, known as pastures, Maradona learned the first tricks of football, and at the age of only ten he said that his dream was to become the world champion in Argentina, which he achieved in 1986.
He lived there until he was able to move with his family to a better home thanks to the first contract he signed with Argentinos Juniors, where he made his professional debut in the late 1970s.
The presidential decree explained that "Maradona has a great influence in Argentine popular culture, and this influence goes beyond his sporting merits, making him the most famous symbol of the country."
The newspaper pointed out that the National Commission on Monuments, Places and Historic Assets, a decentralized body within the scope of the Ministry of Culture, has proposed declaring Diego Armando Maradona's birthplace as a National Historic Site.
The house has an earthen courtyard with its entrance barbed wire door, one dining room and two bedrooms, and around the house are fields.
