this is necessary to move to the neighborhood of La Boca. There, next to the River, were born the two most awarded clubs in Argentina and a bitter rivalry that still exists. (Goxar) At the beginning of the 20th century, Boca and River lived there first years together with the natural part of the city, one of the points where the largest number of immigrants disembarked, many of them Italians. In the first decade of that century, it was already beginning to notice the rivalry neighborhood between these two teams, characterized mainly by chivalry and respect for the other.
