The changes that President Jair Bolsonaro pushed at the National Institute for Historical and Artistic Heritage (Ifan) to meet the interests of allies such as businessman Luciano Hang were not limited to the presidency of the body. The executive director “ripped off” – by this term he called the dismissal ordered by him – five more directors of the institute. His government also deepened policy directives and people with technical qualifications not related to heritage protection into state superintendents.

A survey conducted by the Forum of Brazilian Cultural Heritage Organizations shows that IPHAN’s 12 Regional Superintendents have professional characteristics that are incompatible with their positions. Another five people are architects or technicians in the field, but do not have an academic specialization.

The requirement for special training for appointment is expressed in the 2019 Bolsonaro government decree.

The first to lose his job in October 2019 after the first complaints from the owner of Havan stores was architect Andrei Schlee, then director of the Department of Material Heritage and Inspection. The department oversees the activities of the National Center for Archeology, which is responsible for the temporary suspension of the construction of the Havana division in the city of Rio Grande (RS) in 2019.

Bolsonaro admitted last week that he ripped apart Ifan’s directors because of an embargo on the Havana project. The president’s first ally, Luciano Hang, said the hiatus caused by archaeological finds on earth caused him to “put his mouth on the trombone.”

After Schlee, four more directors were replaced. The same happened with Katia Bozha, who had to transfer the post of President of Ifan to Larisa Pereira, who had previously served in the Ministry of Tourism. Katya has worked at Iphan for almost 40 years. “They took away all the directors who had been in the house for over 30 years. They were people from Ifan, just like me, a career worker, ”said the former president of Estadão. “What happened in Ifan was a showdown.”

The court even suspended Larisa’s appointment due to “lack of technical training.” She has a degree in tourism and hospitality and a master’s degree in marketing. However, the decision was overturned in the second instance.


The institute’s new directors include Pastor Tassos Likurgo of the Department of Intangible Heritage. He replaced lawyer Germano Guanais, a master of cultural preservation. Lack of technical qualifications to work in the position is one of the main problems in the management of the body, identified by organizations and specialists. In the Federal District, Superintendent Saulo Diniz is the designation of Deputy Pocketnarista Bia Kicis (PSL-DF). Before taking up a post at Ifan, he was from the PSL directory.

In Goias, the Superintendent is appointed by Deputy Alcides Ribeiro (Progressistas-GO). Allison Cabral is a lawyer with no experience in the field in which he works today. Olav Schrader, in charge of the organization in Rio, has a degree in international relations, manages historic properties and is associated with the monarchist movement.

Mario de Andrade made the first organ project

One of the oldest institutions in Brazil, the National Institute for Historical and Artistic Heritage (Ifan) is a federal agency affiliated with the Ministry of Tourism. Its functions include protecting and promoting the country’s cultural property, preventing the evasion and loss of works, art and other related items.

IPHAN has 27 superintendents, one in each federal division, and 37 technical offices. The first project for the creation of Ifan was written by the modernist writer Mario de Andrade in 1936. The body will be created next year on the initiative of the lawyer, journalist and writer Rodrigo Melo Franco, who led the institute for 30 years.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario



The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
