Abstract
Gerardo Diego arrived in the Philippines in January 1935 sent by the government of the Second Spanish Republic as cultural envoy. During that year the archipelago approved a Constitution which designed provisionally Spanish and English as official languages, and went from being an American colony to a commonwealth state, as preparatory stage for independence. In this moment of political crossroads and determination of international influences, Diego's journey acquired an unexpected importance, reflected in the coverage provided by local media and in the numerous meetings held with Philippine authorities during the 47 days that he stayed in the country. This paper reviews the positioning of Philippine press on Diego's visit and assesses the reasons for the transcendence of the voyage. It also includes a full article written by Diego for La Vanguaradia from Manila, unpublished in Spain until now.
