The Capablanca Project

Based on access to valuable archival material from Cuba, Russia, South and North America, and various European countries, Olimpiu G. Urcan’s multi-media project on José Raúl Capablanca (1888-1942) involves a scholarly pictorial biography, a graphic novel and a documentary. In addition to a comprehensive chronicle, the aim is to salvage, restore and preserve material related to the Cuban chess genius.
