The humble house is located in Villa Fiorito, south of Buenos Aires. Today, a fresco with the effigy of Maradona adorns the facade of the house.

The football legend was born on October 30, 1960. World champion in 1986, Maradona died on November 25, 2020 of a cardiac arrest in a residence located in the north of Buenos Aires. Two weeks earlier he had undergone brain surgery.

Maradona has never hidden her humble origins. He often returned to Villa Fiorito, where he started playing football.

The decree, published by the Argentinian media, underlines that the house has represented, for Maradona, “throughout his life, fidelity to his origins and the deep bonds which united him to his family”. The document explains that the influence of ‘Pibe de Oro’ on “Argentine popular culture transcends its sporting merits and designates it, in light of its recent demise, as one of the most recognizable symbols of our identity”.
