Machico photo exhibition 1The Diario reports that from yesterday, until May 10,  visitors can go to the Atlanticulture Center at the Machico Forum, where there is a free exhibition of 131 photographic images dedicated to the municipality of Machico and which were captured between 1860 and 1970.

This exhibition was opened yesterday afternoon by the Regional Secretary for Tourism and Culture, Eduardo Jesus, with the minister announcing that “the next phase of these same exhibitions”, in charge of the Regional Archive and Public Library of Madeira, “will pass through editing and launching catalogues of these exhibitions”, that is, the Secretariat will launch books with the photographs ”properly captioned and with information”, something that “will constitute a true legacy to this itinerant project” that has already passed through others municipalities, such as Calheta, Câmara de Lobos and São Vicente “moving any generation of the population”.

This “project of great cultural interest” will thus materialize through the launch of “the first book, alluding to the exhibition held in Calheta”, with the publication being pointed out “in the month of April, followed by the following exhibitions, but giving priority to Machico, which should be the municipality to be catalogued as the second book in that collection”, said Eduardo Jesus.
