LISBON TOYS ORCHESTRA “A Journey through the History of Music” Wednesday | 11:00 am | 2 pm December 07, 2022 After a long period of confinement, we experienced an atypical psychotic outbreak in the city of Lisbon. This outbreak manifests itself essentially in citizens who circulate in groups, usually of individuals linked to the arts, consisting of a kind of collective paranoid schizophrenia where hallucination and loss of the notion of reality are the immediately observable symptoms. It will not be surprising, therefore, that they suddenly come across patients who, for example, with a toy in their hand, believe they are in possession of a stradivarius or any other quality musical instrument. When they come together, these groups of individuals come to believe that they are in an orchestra. Some believe they are great musicians or renowned conductors, others believe they are opera characters, such as Carmen by Bizet, Nemorino in Donizetti’s Elixir of Love, the Duke of Mantua in Rigoleto by Verdi, or the Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Magic Flute. . Some even believe they are angels, due to their vocal gifts. This type of hallucination sometimes generates excessive courtship and cordiality between the members of each […]

Emblazoned building with annexed chapel, the chapel of Sant’Ana. Locally known as “Solar dos Lobos” it was probably “commissioned” at the end of the 18th century by Captain-Mor Manuel José da Gama Lobo Pessanha, son of Nuno Mascarenhas Lobo and grandson of the aforementioned Diogo Lobo Pereira. Designed in a corner, with two facades, one facing west and the other facing south, this palace marked and redefined two new streets: Rua de Portugal and Rua de Nossa Senhora de Fátima. The inclusion in the palace project of a chapel dedicated to Sant’Ana, demolishing the previous chapel that was supposed to date back to the 16th century, also demonstrates that the Gama Lobo Palace intended to reorganize Loulé and guide its future urban growth.

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.
