The inauguration of the temporary exhibition “Manuel Guerreiro, O Homem do Jazz” is scheduled for 5 pm on May 20, which will be on display at the Portimão Museum until September 3 next. The basis of this exhibition is Manuel Guerreiro’s (1932-2005) love for music and passion for jazz, his relevant and creative musical career and the recognition of an intense artistic activity, among his peers and throughout the world. In addition to highlighting Manuel Guerreiro’s strong desire to share and encourage a taste for music in the jazz clubs he created (“O Caldeirão”/Ferragudo and “Manoel’s Jazz Club”/Monte Carvoeiro), the exhibition is a well-deserved tribute and a special tribute to his inspiring and dynamic life. The exhibition will recreate “various periods of the musician’s life, with objects, photographs, posters, memoirs, talking about this man who was one of the greatest Portuguese jazz saxophonists, with a great predisposition, since he was a child, for music. On show will be, for example, a replica of the stage, as well as tables and chairs from “Manoel’s Jazz Club”, in Monte Carvoeiro, the second and last of the jazz clubs founded by the musician.

But the same epithet could apply to Rossini’s theatrical vein, Glazunov’s coloring, or the brilliant symphony that Mozart wrote at age 22 to impress Parisian audiences with the virtuosity that was required of the orchestra and that will be very clear in this book. concert.

The Salt, the sun and the south and a different late afternoon in Salina Félix
To the south and in the sun in a late afternoon, the participants of the first action of the initiative “End of Afternoon in Salt” were able to collect their own salt, in an experience that aims to value the profession of salt and salt flower. In Salina Félix, in the middle of the Sapal de Castro Marim and VRSA Nature Reserve, the new salineiros learned about the whole process of artisanal saliniculture, collecting the salt manually, with the ancestral techniques that the fresh salineiros taught them. Home they took an enriching experience, 1 bag of the “best salt in the world” and also 2 packs of salt flower, which they themselves collected from the herseherand. The traditional sea salt of Castro Marim results from the conjugation of the salineiro’s work with the action of tides, sun and winds, and is not subject to any kind of subsequent treatment, presenting naturally white and bright. The salt flower was also observed, although atmospheric conditions did not allow collection. Also the salt flower does not undergo any kind of processing, dries in the sun and is then packed, maintaining the taste and humidity of the sea. This initiative is part of a strategy of valorization and promotion of salineiro and, consequently, of salt, which is one of the ex-libris of Castro Marim. Providing this contact of proximity and familiarization, it hopes to increase and boost the commercialization of local products in the tourist chain. About 2 months ago Castro Marim was also able to see legally protected the name “Sal e Flor de Sal de Castro Marim” (PDO – Protected Designation of Origin). The “End of Afternoon in Salt” is an action organized by the Municipality of Castro Marim and Odiana Association, integrated in the Blue Flag 2020 program and framed in the application “Heritage of Castro Marim: Valorization and Promotion of Local Producers and Endogenous Products”, composed by PO CRESC 2020, PADRE project, supported by Portugal and the European Union, co–financed at 70% by the FEDER.

OPEN-CALL of writing launched by Mákina de Cena in 2021 results in the edition of the book />> SLASH FORWARD Letters to Tomorrow’s [Me]
The long-awaited launch will take place next Saturday, December 10th, at 3 pm at Casa do Meio-Dia / Sul, Sol e Sal, in Loulé, and will be attended by the members of the jury, Dr. Adriana Freire Nogueira (Regional Director of Culture of the Algarve), Lídia Jorge and Patrícia Amaral (Mákina de Cena). In 2020, the Planet was hit by the pandemic caused by the New Coronavirus – SarsCov2. During the first confinement, Time, the one we always complain about, entered our houses inside and stayed there, imposing and static. Thus, Mákina de Cena launched, still in 2020, an Open-Call of Photography, [ISO]lados, which, in the rest times that the pandemic provided, became an exhibition in the Municipal Galleries of Loulé and at the IPDJ in Faro. In 2021, upon returning to confinement, we launched another Call, this time literary: />> SLASH FORWARD, which challenged participants to dialogue with their ‘future self’. This edition is the result of that challenge, which had a total of 36 participations from all over the country, with 23 of these texts being selected for printing. With the dragging of the pandemic, the launch was postponed several times, until now. Still in the aftermath of […]
Cleaning and disinfection campaign has begun in the Municipality of Lagoa
This Monday, March 23, a special campaign to clean and disinfect the public spaces of the municipality of Lagoa began, which will last at least until the next month. The Municipality of Lagoa has just purchased a biocidal product duly certified for disinfection of the public space which has already begun to be applied. It is a broad spectrum, ecological and guaranteed efficiency disinfectant, which follows the recommendations of the General Directorate of Health for the prevention of contagion and dissemination of COVID-19. This special cleaning and disinfection campaign for the municipality’s public space is mainly aimed at landfill sites, and their user contact areas, such as handles and covers, in order to minimise the risk of potential sources of contamination. But in addition to these priorities, other public facilities and spaces, such as the streets and some urban furniture, will also be cleaned and disinfected. The costs of this product and associated application services are EUR 18.400.00 (EUR eighteen thousand four hundred), plus VAT at the current legal rate. To this contracted service, the Municipality of Lagoa is adding other resources of its responsibility, and also some possible means kindly made available for this purpose, by an entrepreneur resident […]
Terras de Verdelago enterprise invests in the afforestation of native species.
On November 23rd, the Native Species Forest Day is celebrated and the date was marked in Castro Marim with an environmental education action in Verdelago’s entreprise, the first of many that will follow, seeking to respond to the challenge “one tree for each tourist bed”. This initiative also symbolized the beginning of the work of this project, which approved, but without progress, for 20 years. In an initiative organized by the promoters of Verdelago, in partnership with the Castro Marim School Group and the Castro Marim City Hall and articulated with the ICNF, about 130 students from the Altura School Center will plant pine trees, coark oak and holm oaks, with the aim of thickening the existing clearings. Each tree planted was baptized with the name of the student who cultivated it, seeking to promote and stimulate environmental values in the younger ones. Afforestation is the main objective of this initiative, but this time, with native trees, trees originating in the territory itself, since the plucked are invasive species, such as eucalyptus and acacia trees. In addition to being more adapted to the soil and climate of the region, resisting better weather, drought or disease, indigenous trees improve soil quality […]
Expansion of the Cheese Dairy at the Multipurpose Center of Azinhal
This week, the Municipality of Castro Marim begins work on expanding the Cheese Dairy at the Centro Multiusos do Azinhal, an intervention worth around 90,000.00 euros that focuses on the creation of an Experimental Nucleus, a pedagogical room attached to the existing structure. To implement this experimental unit, the useful area of the cheese factory will be increased by around 40m2. Articulated with the values of the interior and the territory, this Experimental Nucleus will function as a “centre of living science”, reinforcing the work already done to value Algarve cheese and goat, a characteristic breed of the Algarve and with great expression in the territory of Castro Marim . The Centro Multiusos do Azinhal has been the stage par excellence for initiatives and actions aimed at promoting goat and its derivatives, and it is also here that the “Terra de Maio” Fair is held, an event exclusively aimed at the promotion and increase of Goat de Algarve breed and the knowledge and flavors associated with it. Raising Algarve cattle and goats is a business area for many families in the territory. It is also in the village of Azinhal that, since 1991, the Association of Breeders of the Algarve […]
