The Roman Ruins of Milreu and the Fortress of Sagres will host, between tomorrow and Sunday, 24 to 26, several initiatives integrated in the cultural program DiVaM – Dynamization and Valorization of Monuments.
Integrated in the Amatores in Situ cycle, the lecture «Pastores da Ibéria» will be delivered by Fernanda M. Dias (Master in Communication, Culture and Arts at the University of the Algarve) at the Ruins of Milreu on Friday, 24, at 6:00 p.m. hours.
Marcel Schwob reported to Maurice Spronck, in a tale published in 1920, "Le roi au masque d'or", as adolescent pastors from the Iberian Peninsula came to Rome. Through his eyes he shows "diverse people on their way to taverns, public baths and markets – and makes us feel, by these reminiscences, the poignant longing for the meager pastures, the herds, the hisses; of the mother figure at the door of the hut, of the shepherd girl playing to the princesses or of the bonfire of steves at dusk ", the researcher says.
The "Amatores in Situ" cycle is an organization of CÍVIS – Association for the Deepening of Citizenship, University of Algarve and Portuguese Association of Classical Studies.
On Saturday 25th, at 5:00 p.m., the exhibition «Voyage in Time» will be inaugurated, where the results of the Creative Day in Milreu will be presented.
Joining the Land Art concept with the "art of the muses" (mosaic), and reflecting on the durability and ephemeral nature of art in nature, the site was explored and ephemeral works and small natural mosaics were created in nature.
The result will be a great collective work, a contemporary and natural mosaic that uses as medium and support nature.
This is a project of Amarelarte – Cultural and Recreational Association, with the artistic revitalization of Nicole Lissy, Sadie Walker and Jane Gittens and photography of Marco Cavaco.
Finally, the "Evening Concerts" are back, with the concert of Nádia Schilling, scheduled for Sunday, 26, at 6:00 pm, in the Auditorium of the Sagres Fortress.
The artist will present her album "Above the Trees," an album of unusual melancholy and beauty that challenges stylistic boundaries and has garnered critical and public attention, "the organization said.
All DiVaM cultural initiatives are free entry.
