D. Pedro, a Independência e o Porto

D. Pedro, a Independência e o Porto

This exhibition brings together about 200 objects such as paintings, documents, sheet music, coins or weaponry that serve as pieces of historical importance and which arrive from various national and foreign institutions. At the same time, it is also sustainable, as the materials used are ecological, free of plastics and pollutants.

Promoted by the Porto City Hall, this exhibition has the scientific support of CITCEM (Interdisciplinary Centre "Culture, Space and Memory") of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Porto (FLUP) and is curated by Professor Conceição Meireles Pereira of the Department of History and Political and International Studies of the University of Porto. Among the themes covered are the arrival of the Court to Brazil, the Siege of Porto, the independence of Brazil and the return of the monarch to the city.

This exhibition also aims to "evoke the role of D. Pedro (I of Brazil and IV of Portugal) in the independence of the Brazilian nation, in the triumph of the liberal cause, as well as the close relationship he had with the city of Porto".
