The exhibition hall of the Manuel António da Mota Foundation received the exhibition “Germano Silva – O Porto no Coração” from 25 November to 28 February 2018, in an initiative that had the cooperation of Cooperativa Árvore and Jornal de Notícias. This exhibition honours the journalist, writer and scholar from Porto, who is also one of the most illustrious individuals in the city of Porto.
On the day of the inauguration, the exhibition was attended by the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who observed the display attentively.
The ceremony also included speeches by Artur Santos Silva, David Pontes and the honouree himself, and was followed by a performance from Rancho Folclórico do Porto and by a visit to the exhibition by hundreds of people present.
Germano Silva knows Porto as few do, and this exhibition gathered, at the Manuel António da Mota Foundation, a diverse legacy – letters, works of art, books, photos, cards and a multitude of objects – obtained throughout Germano Silva’s life, thanks to his insatiable curiosity and to the fact he has the soul of a traveller and collector.
On the day of the inauguration, the exhibition was attended by the President of
the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.
