Maluda
“I came from the East, where light is born; went through Africa, where I learned to love life; I came to Europe, where I studied painting in the city of lights*; then I fixed myself in Lisbon. Gradually I retraced the labyrinthic path towards light (…)” Maluda, 1996

Vim do Oriente, onde nasce a luz; passei por África, onde aprendi a amar a vida; cheguei à Europa, onde estudei pintura na cidade das luzes*; depois fixei-me em Lisboa (…)” – Maluda, 1996

Maluda, true name Maria de Lourdes Ribeiro was an important painter and very popular among the people.
The pictures she painted were mainly based in the cities, particularly in the urban landscape, windows and various other architectural elements. The reputation of the apparently simple pictorial works (some used on postage stamps), while had promoted her one of the most popular Portuguese painters of the last decades of the twentieth century, also had the negative effect of cover a vast work of graphic design more complex.
While experimenting various genres, including portraits, silkscreen prints, tapestries, posters, murals and illustrations, the main focus of Maluda’s painting was the synthesis of the urban landscape, in which follows conceptually, Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), the master of Impressionism.

Maluda, ou Maria de Lourdes Ribeiro foi uma importante pintora e muito popular entre os portugueses.
Os quadros que pintava eram baseados principalmente nas cidades, nomeadamente na pintura de paisagens urbanas, janelas e vários outros elementos arquitectónicos. A notoriedade das suas obras pictóricas aparentemente mais simples (algumas utilizadas em selos oficiais por encomenda dos Correios portugueses), promoveu-a a uma das mais reconhecidas pintoras portuguesas das últimas décadas do século XX, mas teve o efeito negativo de encobrir uma vasta obra de criação gráfica mais complexa.
Embora experimentando vários géneros, incluindo retratos, serigrafias, tapeçarias, cartazes, painéis murais, ilustrações e selos de correio, o cerne principal da pintura de Maluda está muito voltado para a síntese da paisagem urbana, seguindo conceptualmente, Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), o mestre do Impressionismo.

In her career, Maluda had done many solo exhibitions and is represented in numerous museums, including the “Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation” and the “Centro Cultural de Belém”, but also in several private collections in Portugal and other countries.

The Vasco da Gama Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge flanked by viaducts and rangeviews that spans the Tagus River in Parque das Nações in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. It is the longest bridge in Europe (including viaducts), with a total length of 17.2 km (10.7 mi), including 0.829 km (0.5 mi) for the main bridge, 11.5 km (7.1 mi) in viaducts, and 4.8 km (3.0 mi) in dedicated access roads. Its purpose is to alleviate the congestion on Lisbon’s other bridge (25 de Abril Bridge), and to join previously unconnected motorways radiating from Lisbon.

Construction began on February 1995; the bridge was opened to traffic on 29 March 1998, just in time for Expo 98, the World’s Fair that celebrated the 500th anniversary of the discovery by Vasco da Gama of the sea route from Europe to…

A senhora e o seu engraçado cão, descansam na pequena varanda, depois das tarefas domésticas, num dos bairros mais típicos do centro histórico da capital. 

Between the “Rua da Bica”, where the famous “Bica” Elevator passes for more than a century (it’s a National Monument since 2002) and the magnificent viewpoint known as “Miradouro do Adamastor”,  a mythical sea monster from the epic Portuguese poem “Os Lusiadas”, by our beloved poet Luís de Camões. Nearby the brilliant building of Pharmacy Museum, “5000 years of history”.

Entre a Rua da Bica, onde há mais de um século passa o famoso Elevador, que é Monumento Nacional, desde 2002 e o Miradouro do Adamastor, o monstro mítico de “Os Lusíadas”, do nosso amado poeta Luís de Camões. Perto, o Museu da Farmácia, “5000 anos de história”.

The party lasts all night, and a bit all over the city, there are popular folk festivals, places of entertainment and typical food like grilled sardines, pork leg “febras”, “caldo verde” (a soup made with kale, cut into lint, which gives it a greenish color) and red wine.
