Pessoa vs. Salazar

5 of December of 2019 - 18h00
Aljube Museum Auditorium
Fernando Pessoa and António de Oliveira Salazar

A talk with Ricardo Belo de Morais and José Barreto (Historian)

If Fernando Pessoa had any initial “sympathy” for the corporatist regime, it is also clear that he distanced himself from him in the 1930s, giving way to a coherent thought of increasing opposition to Salazar and his regime, until a clear and loud final clash.

The Conversation is based on the book « Fernando Pessoa – About fascism, the Military Dictatorship and Salazar »

José Barreto (ed.)

Tinta da China editions, 2015

Registration required. Activity in portuguese.
