An expired Citizen Card is used to travel and apply to reside in the United Kingdom.

In an opinion piece to be published Thursday in Folha de S. Paulo, Portugal’s chief executive claims he agreed to be associated with the celebration of the bicentenary of Brazil’s independence because the “sentimental component” and “rational aspect” did not allow for any other solution.

At the same time, the Portuguese government bought a full page in the Brazilian newspapers Globo and Estado de São Paulo, where you can read “Congratulations Brazil” on a green background and the logo of the Portuguese executive at the bottom of the page.

“Naturally, when it comes to Brazil, Portugal doesn’t blink. And that at important moments she appears. The presence in Brazil of His Excellency the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Souza, at the climax of the September 7 celebration, is a reflection of this,” he notes in an article that has already been published in the “online” issue of Folha de São Paulo.

First, António Costa states that “it made sense to take the opportunity, together with Brazilian organizations, to create moments of unity and frankness about the meaning of independence and to confront ideas and perceptions of the Portuguese presence in Brazil in a healthy and ongoing dialogue.”

“Then, because it was justified to supplement the knowledge about Portugal in Brazil in a more structured way. That is, it was important to make the current country more famous in its cultural, economic and social aspects, demystifying some ideas about our nation due to sheer ignorance, ”he wrote.

The prime minister says that these “navel relations” must be constantly renewed, and the bicentenary allows the two countries to “plainly talk about the past and lay the foundations for the future.”

“Experience so far has allowed us to see that we were right and that we were right, listening to heart and mind, as the cooperation between the Brazilian and Portuguese authorities has been exemplary and has produced good results,” says António Costa. . , adding: “Otherwise, nothing else could be expected given the professionalism, dedication and vision of the national coordinators appointed for the celebration: Ambassador Francisco Ribeiro Telles of Portugal and Ambassador George Prat of Brazil. “.

Costa makes special mention in this regard of the hosting of the Sao Paulo International Book Biennale, where Portugal was an invited country.

“Today, Portugal is spoken about in Brazil more than ever. Just like Brazil is spoken of in Portugal. Much of this has to do with the celebration of the bicentennial, which has helped us reinvent this bilateral relationship, which is always out of whack. for our part, we will do everything necessary to maintain this good momentum from the very beginning in view of the next bilateral summit, which we want to hold in 2023 in Portugal,” concluded the Prime Minister of Portugal.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
