Visible and invisible similarities

I can tell Funchal is not that different from where I used to live. In my opinion, you can look at the two cities with two different perspectives. In a physical way but also in a psychological way. The visible and the invisible way of comparing cities with each other. The easiest way to compare similarities is what you see, the physical things. For example buildings, streets, churches, and cars. Firstly, what I noticed when I arrived in Funchal is that there are a lot of taxis and buses! Just like the place where I used to live in the Netherlands, here in Madeira the distances between villages are too far to do only by foot. Where I used to […]

O 2.º ciclo deve ser repensado

A existência de um só ciclo inicial de seis anos voltou a ser abordada a propósito da Estado da Educação 2017. O presidente da Associação Nacional de Dirigentes Escolares (ANDE) admite que possa fazer sentido repensar a existência do 2.º ciclo do ensino básico, mas defende que mais importante é aligeirar a carga curricular do 1.º ciclo que considera ser pesada. “Faria algum sentido que se repensasse esta estrutura do 1.º ciclo e do 2.º ciclo. Faria algum sentido que se pensasse na possibilidade de um só ciclo de seis anos”, disse Manuel Pereira, reagindo assim às declarações da presidente do Conselho Nacional de Educação (CNE) sobre o relatório Estado da Educação 2017. A presidente do CNE, Maria Emília Brederode Santos, indicou que […]

Funchal vs. Bludenz

About what my new home has in common with my old one. About the life in a small town between alps and about the similarities of my old and new home. Since I was born, I have lived in Bludenz, which is a small town in the western part of Austria. With 15.000 inhabitants it is the smallest town of the federal state Vorarlberg. It has an area from 29,94 km², an elevation of 588 meters and it lies at the meeting point of five valleys. However, my new home is Funchal. I have lived here since the beginning of August, and although it is so different from my original home, there are a lot of similarities. Funchal has about […]

Germany and Madeira

Differences and similarities between Germany and Madeira. My name is Anne, I am part of the voluntary project in Madeira. Therefore, I want to share my thoughts on the comparison between Germany and Madeira. Although, Madeira is on the border of Europe, close to Africa there are lots of similarities between Germany and Madeira. You can find some typical German food in the supermarket like Haribo or Nürnberger Würstchen. Most of the people are very nice, helpful and dressed like people in Germany. And last but not least we share the same currency, the Euro. However, there are also some differences. Due to the fact that the weather is much better than in Germany, the people are more tanned and […]

Two very different cities

Funchal and Vaduz: so different that it is very hard to find similarities. My home city is Vaduz. It is the capital city of Liechtenstein. Funchal is the capital city of the Autonomous Region of Madeira. Madeira seems to be pretty big if you compare Liechtenstein to the Autonomous Region of Madeira. Even Funchal is a lot bigger than my home city Vaduz. Vaduz has only 17,3 km² and Funchal has 76,25 km². One can also spot the difference by the number of inhabitants. Funchal has twenty times the amount of the inhabitants of Vaduz. Funchal and my home city seem to be really distant and they are. It is really hard to find a lot of similarities and it […]

Alvar Aalto

He did some really nice pieces of art. We were supposed to write about a painter from our own countries. But to be honest, in Finland, we don’t have any painters who would be really impressive for me or either known world-wide. So I decided to write about Alvar Aalto, an architect and a designer I personally like. Alvar Aalto was born in the 3rd of February 1898 in Kuortane. In 1921 he graduated from Helsinki’s technical academy. During his time in the academy, he took part in the civil war in Finland. After graduating he moved away from the capital city, to Jyväskylä. There he made his own architect office, following the Scandinavian design, which was popular at that time. […]

Karel Appel

The paintings look (a little bit) like child drawings. This man is an internationally renowned Dutch painter, whose paintings look (at least according to critics) like they were painted by a child himself. Also, Karel stated: ´I just mess up something´. Others say this was not completely true, they say there was a big theory behind the paintings. Christiaan Karel Appel was born in 1921 in Amsterdam, he studied there at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. At the academy, he met two other artists with who he became close friends, Corneille and Constant. With these friends and a few others, he founded Cobra in 1948 at an international conference in Paris. This was an international movement of painters and […]

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.

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. […]
