Manila Transitio 1945
In remembrance of “The Battle of Manila” which happened on February 1945, the Intramuros Administration, #vivamanila, and Carlos Celdran will be hosting Manila Transitio in its eighth year. Happening on February 26 at the Baluarte de San Diego in Intramuros, Manila, people may not only dine, relax, and celebrate a day of art and music, but also remember the devastations and the lives that were lost during the historical battle. It aims to recognize the “city’s changes; Manila’s transitions, from what it was, to what is, and to what it can possibly become in the future.”
