    The Unites States....of Spain: the Spanish side of American society today

    The Spanish legacy in the United States is the result of over three centuries of exploration, settlements, and cultural influence. The Spanish arrival in the US paved the way for later European nations to come, and provided the models on which those other societies thrived. It is with Spain that the history of the United States, as we know it, began; a legacy that persists to this day. A lecture by renowned Spanish journalist and writer Guillermo Fesser.


    Guillermo Fesser is a journalist mostly known in his country for the innovative morning show, Gomaespuma, which he created with his partner Juan Luis Cano. Gomaespuma ran 25 years and had over 1 million daily listeners. Guillermo studied journalism at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid and filmmaking at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, on a Fulbright scholarship. He has written film scripts with his brother (the director Javier Fesser), and directed the movie Candida, based on the biography of Guillermo´s housemaid. Fesser has also edited and hosted television news programs for TVE; and published articles in El Pais and El Mundo.
