Biographical Note

Natalia Aróstegui Bolognini was born to a prominent family in the city of Camagüey, Cuba. Her father, Gonzalo Aróstegui y del Castillo, was a famous Cuban surgeon who also served as Secretary of Education in the 1920s.

Natalia Aróstegui worked with "Pro Arte Musical" Society, starting in the early 1930s, to promote the arts and music in Cuba. The Society is still in existence today. Aróstegui worked as the first librarian for the Society and was the dean of music and singing courses, being a performer herself.

Natalia married the famous violinist Remo E. Bolognini from Argentina after she lost her first husband. Mr. Bolognini spent most of his life touring the world. Aróstegui served as a vice consul of Cuba in New York for almost thirty years before the Castro regime.
