Rembrandt van Rijn

The master among Dutch painters in the Dutch Golden Age. Rembrandt Hamerszoon van Rijn was a Dutch painter, etcher, drawer and art collector. He is considered as one of the greatest painters in European art. Besides, he is the most important Dutch painter of the 17th century. This century is also known as the Dutch Golden Age because Dutch art was one of the most acclaimed in the world in that time. Rembrandt manufactured approximately 300 paintings, 300 etchings and 2000 drawings. These works belong to the Baroque style and were influenced by the Caravaggesque style. Both styles find their origin in Italy and are related to strong emotional expressions and extravagancy even though he has never been to Italy. […]

Investimento em ciência em Portugal

Despesas com investigação e desenvolvimento foram 1,33% do valor do PIB em 2017.

Todos os indicadores do mais recente Inquérito ao Potencial Científico e Tecnológico Nacional (IPCTN) mostram um reforço da tendência de crescimento que começou em 2016 quando, após seis anos de quebra, o país conseguiu aumentar as despesas com investigação e desenvolvimento (I&D). Agora, os dados provisórios de 2017 mostram que Portugal investiu 2563 milhões de euros em I&D (mais 175 milhões do que em 2016), o que representa 1,33% do produto interno bruto (PIB), quando em 2016 era de 1,29%.

Maruja Mallo

Maruja Mallo was first and foremost free. When you think about a famous painter from Spain all the names that come out are masculine. The reason why is not because there are not female Spanish painters, it is because history is not giving them the recognition that they deserve. I am really far from being an art expert, but I know how women have to face challenges due to gender biases, from finding difficulty in training to selling their work and gaining recognition. Maruja Mallo is one of the women that fight for her own place in the world of art of the twentieth century to become one of the most representative figures of the Generation of 27 and one […]

Descoberto gibão já extinto

Denominada Junzi imperialis, a nova espécie de gibão terá desaparecido devido à pressão humana no seu habitat. Uma nova espécie de gibão foi encontrada num sítio inesperado: um túmulo com cerca de 2300 anos no centro da China, que pode ter pertencido à avó de Qin Shihuang, o primeiro imperador da China unificada e que mandou construir a Grande Muralha. A descoberta divulgada esta sexta-feira na revista Science sugere que este gibão possa ter sido o primeiro a desaparecer como resultado directo das actividades humanas. Em 2004, foi escavado um túmulo na província de Shaanxi que, possivelmente pertencia à avó de Qin Shihuang, de seu nome Xia. Lá, encontraram-se vestígios de aves, mamíferos domésticos, leopardo, lince, urso-negro-asiático ou de um […]

The art of Open Doors

We cannot pass without admiration for the art in Santa Maria street. More specifically, this project concerns around 200 painted doors which transformed this historic part of the city in open and permanent art gallery. This idea of painting doors emerged in 2010 and it was a result of cooperation between José Maria Zyberchema and João Carlos Abreu, the former Regional Secretary for Economy, Tourism and Culture, the Funchal Municipal Council and two private companies. The project was presented for the first time in an event called PechaKucha by José Maria Montero. After that, on April 2011, in the street of Santa Maria at number 77 the first door was painted by the artist Mark Milewski. It looks like a […]

King Manuel I, a King of Portugal

He played an important role in the expansion of the Power of Portugal Hey guys! After telling you my first impressions about the Island, then about food, and last time about a little bit of Flora and Fauna, in this article we will talk about History, and one of the Kings of Portugal. So let’s speak about King Manuel I, a King of Portugal between 1495 (when he received the Crown in Lisbon) and 1521. He was born on 31st of May 1469 in Alcochete (Portugal, facing Lisbon on the East) and died in Lisbon in December 1521. Son of Ferdinand, a little brother of King Afonso V (King between 1438 and 1481), Manuel succeeded to his cousin John II […]

King Dom Carlos

He became king in 1889 which was a time of crisis. Dom Carlos might have not been the last king on the throne of Portugal and the Algarve but his rule is often associated with the end of the monarchy. The image of the Portuguese monarchy was severely damaged after the government showed weakness facing the British. From today’s view, you might say that Dom Carlos had no great talent in politics, as he is still blamed for the end of the Portuguese monarchy. It did not make it easier to seem like a confident king. Instead, the population noticed quite fast that he could not stand its ground against the British Empire. Portugal’s plan was to have sovereignty over […]

Todos temos deveres!

Análise dos resultados do 1.º semestre do ano lectivo 2017-2018. Todas as instituições são reguladas por normas e a Universidade da Madeira, enquanto instituição de ensino superior deverá, por isso, não só preparar os estudantes cientificamente e, logo, profissionalmente, como também pessoal e civicamente. Normas básicas como a pontualidade, a assiduidade e cumprimento de prazos devem ser respeitadas e ensinadas aos estudantes através do exemplo prático dados pelos docentes e demais comunidade. Quando tal não acontece, seja por que motivo for, é dever do estudante reportar a quem de direito, sem temer pressão e represálias. Para agilizar e concentrar todas as reclamações, e não querendo substituir-se aos Diretores de curso ou ao Provedor do Estudante, a Académica da Madeira implementou […]

King Manuel I of Portugal

The period of his reign was one of the finest times in the history of Portugal. Walking around Funchal you could have came across a square called “Largo Dom Manuel I” (eng. “Square of King Manuel I”) which is located near Sé Cathedral or you could have heard about an architectural style called ‘mannueline’ visible in many buildings in the city. All this reminds us of the times of reign of one of the most famous kings of Portugal, Manuel I also known as the Fortunate (port. o Afortunado) had as the period of his reign 1495-1521. During this time Funchal received city rights (1508) and became an important commercial port in the map of the world. We can even […]

King Sebastian of Portugal

Probably one of the most famous kings in Portuguese history. King Sebastian of Portugal (20 January 1554 – 4 August 1578) is very popular amongst us volunteers so that it took me a little discussion so that I am finally the one who writes about “the desired”. But why is he so famous? Was it because he invited the Jesuit order in 1569 to the island of Madeira after a huge French privateer attack in 1566 where French soldiers robbed and plundered the archipelago? Or because he was the youngest king Portugal ever had, who became king with just 3 years because his father Prince John died before he was born, his mother Joanna of Spain returned shortly after his […]

D. Maria I – The crazy Queen

D.Maria I was very religious and got completely crazy during her lifetime. Maria Francisca Isabel Josefa Antónia Gertrudes Rita Joana (Maria I) was the daughter of José I de Portugal and Mariana Victoria of Spain. Maria was born in 1734 and grew up with her sisters at the court in Lisbon. They seemed to have a good life, they were loved by their father and they did a lot of things, like riding horses, learning to draw and read French and Latin. But things happened in Maria´s lifetime that slowly drove her crazy. For example the earthquake in Lisbon, which killed thousands of people. She had to marry her uncle (at the age of 17) and apart from that she […]
