Hemingway lived in Cuba on and off for 20 years. His house, "Finca Vigía", was where he wrote (among others) his novel "The Old Man and the Sea", for which he received the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. A year later he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for his body of work. When receiving the Prize, Hemingway declared that the prize belonged not to him, but to Cuba. Indeed: he gifted the medal to Cuba upon receiving it. [more]
