The presenter and actress Norma Belgrano died on June 18 at her home in the district of Miraflores, Lima, after falling ill with pneumonia.
A recognized figure on Peruvian television between the 1960s and 1970s, Norma Belgrano began her career in show business at the Radio Club Infantil, a space hosted by Maruja Venegas Salinas that also served as a springboard to fame for artists such as Judith Acuña, Chicho Gordillo, Edith Barra, Ricardo Roca Rey, among others.
In subsequent decades, Belgrano hosted programs such as “Helen Curtis asks” with Kiko Ledgard, as well as the program “Cancionísima” (1962-1968) with Pablo de Madalengoitia. He additionally acted in telenovelas such as “I will always help you” and “Fugitives of love”, among others.
One of his last appearances on television was in 1974 on the program “Triángulo”, a space he shared with Pepe Ludmir and Martinez Morosini. After leaving Peruvian television, she worked as a producer in Mexico and the United States, providing her services in companies such as Telemundo.
The unfortunate departure of Norma Belgrano leaves her two daughters in mourning: Ana María Mariategui and Patricia Mariategui.
