The Historian of Havana is the head of Habaguanex S.A, a company whose goal is to make the restoration of Havana's colonial zone profitable and economically sustainable by putting all revenue from tourism and foreign investment back into the city for historic preservation of the buildings, but also for social and environmental programs for the inhabitants. The project of integral development and rehabilitation that he has led in the Historical Centre of Havana since 1967 has been recognized internationally for its strategy of involving the local citizens in the rescue of an enormous patrimony while paying attention to economy, social issues and the environment.
