The year is 1418, the year of the discovery of the Porto Santo Island, an event that occurred after a storm on the high seas which deviated a vessel that followed the African coast from its route. The navigator Gonçalves Zarco and his crew were saved by this small piece of land which they named as Porto Santo (Holy Harbor). A year later, in 1419, another piece of land was spotted, which was designated by Madeira (Wood), due to the abundance of this raw material. Gonçalves Zarco, Tristão Vaz Teixeira and Bartolomeu Perestrelo are the three navigators who arrived and stayed here, each with his captaincy. Porto Santo was assigned to Bartolomeu Perestrelo, Machico to Tristão Vaz Teixeira, and Funchal to Gonçalves Zarco, but this only occurred some years later, in 1440, after the Cycle of Settlement, in 1425, by order of D. João I.

600 anos da descoberta do Arquipélago da Madeira A Descoberta 1418, é o ano apontado como o ano da descoberta da Ilha do Porto Santo, circunstância ocorrida após uma tempestade em alto mar que desviou da rota uma embarcação que seguia pela costa africana. Gonçalves Zarco e a sua tripulação foram salvos por este pequeno bocado de terra ao qual batizaram de Porto Santo. Um ano mais tarde, em 1419, avistou-se outro bocado de terra, o qual foi designado por Madeira, devido à abundância desta matéria-prima. Gonçalves Zarco, Tristão Vaz Teixeira e Bartolomeu Perestrelo são os três navegadores que aqui chegaram e aqui ficaram, cada um com a sua capitania. Porto Santo a Bartolomeu Perestrelo, Machico a Tristão Vaz Teixeira e, Funchal a Gonçalves Zarco, isto, alguns anos mais tarde, em 1440, após se ter dado início ao Ciclo do Povoamento, em 1425, por ordem do D. João I.

História

Festa da Flor

festivities festas

MIM April-May 2018

A origem da Festa da Flor remonta ao ano de 1954, quando se realizou no Ateneu Comercial do Funchal a Festa da Rosa. A constatação de que grande parte dos madeirenses se dedicava ao cultivo das flores levou ao convite para que as expusessem, num evento que concluía com a atribuição de prémios às melhores flores. Esta exposição/concurso, pelo sucesso alcançado, continuou a se repetir sob a denominação de Festa da Flor. No final da década dos anos setenta do século passado (1979), a Direção Regional do Turismo traz para a rua a Festa da Flor, através da inclusão e organização de manifestações como a Cerimónia do Muro da Esperança, o Cortejo Alegórico da flor, concursos florais, de montras e jardins floridos, espetáculos musicais e decorações diversas.

Sweet Potatoe

(Ipomoea Batatas L.)

The sweet potato is a large, starchy, sweet-tasting, root vegetable. Sweet potato varieties with white or pale yellow flesh are less sweet and moist than those with red, pink or orange flesh.

Batata-doce

The center of origin and domestication of sweet potato is thought to be either in Central America or South America. In Central America, sweet potatoes were domesticated at least 5,000 years ago. In South America, Peruvian sweet potato remnants dating as far back as 8000 BC have been found. Sweet potatoes became popular very early in the islands of the Pacific Ocean, spreading from Polynesia to Japan and the Philippines. One

reason is that they were a reliable crop in cases of crop failure of other staple foods because of typhoon flooding. The New World, the original home of the sweet potato, grows less than three percent (3%) of the world's supply. Europe has only a very small sweet potato production, mainly in Portugal. They grow well in many farming conditions and have few natural enemies; pesticides are rarely needed. They can be grown in poor soils with

A batata-doce (Ipomoea batatas L.) é um tubérculo de grande importância na cultura hortícola da Madeira, sendo exportada para vários países europeus. Este tubérculo tem uma polpa branca alaranjada, com casca fina que pode admitir a cor branca, amarela, laranja, vermelha ou púrpura, e distingue-se pelo seu sabor adocicado. A batata-doce é originária da América do Sul onde, muito antes dos Descobrimentos, já era consumida pelos indígenas do México e do Perú e foi trazida para a Europa pelos portugueses. O botânico madeirense Carlos Azevedo de Menezes, em artigo publicado em 1909, opina que a batata-doce terá sido introduzida na Madeira nos

meados do século XVII, no entanto, Mendes Ferrão, um estudioso das plantas tropicais, afirma que a sua cultura já era feita nos Açores em 1538 e que, na segunda metade do século XVI, a batata-doce, ao contrário da batata comum, já estava muito divulgada em Portugal, Espanha e Itália. Na Ilha da Madeira, a batata-doce é cultivada desde o litoral até acima dos 700 m de altitude em toda a superfície agrícola, embora Santana, Ponta do Sol, Calheta, Machico e Ribeira Brava sejam os concelhos que dispõem de maior área dedicada a esta cultura. Os madeirenses são grandes apreciadores desta raíz doce e saborosa, consumida cozida ou assada

little fertilizer. However, sweet potatoes are very sensitive to aluminum toxicity and will die about six weeks after planting if lime is not applied at planting in this type of soil. The Center for Science in the Public Interest has compared the nutritional value of sweet potatoes to other foods. Considering fiber content, complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamin A and potassium, the sweet potato ranked highest in nutritional value. ou ainda aproveitada na doçaria caseira. Em alguns locais da Madeira, utiliza-se também a batata-doce no fabrico do chamado pão caseiro. Atualmente, as variedades dominantes são a 'Inglesa' e a 'Brasileira', que foram selecionadas pelos agricultores ao longo dos tempos. A batata-doce é um alimento de elevado valor energético, contendo as raízes tuberosas normalmente entre 25% e 30% de hidratos de carbono, e cerca de 100-120 calorias por 100 gramas. Essas raízes possuem, também, boas percentagens de vitaminas (especialmente provitamina A e vitamina C) e de sais minerais (potássio, ferro e cálcio), sendo, no entanto, pobres em proteínas.

African Passion

Zimbabwe stone sculpture is a contemporary African art that started in the early 1960s. It has become one of the most prolific art movements in Africa and many artists have become household names in the international art scene. The sculpture movement is still flourishing and has already entered its third generation of artists. The artists' community in Tengenenge has been part of it since 1966. The Berardo Collection of Zimbabwe stone sculpture is a historical collection. It embodies a closed chapter in the history of that art with works by artists of the first generation. Most sculptures date from the very first years at Tengenenge. Some of the artists have made it internationally. Names like Henry MUNYARADZI or Bernard MATEMERA and, to a lesser extent, Fanizani AKUDA, Sylvester MUBAYI or Anderson MWALE are familiar to all those who take an interest in contemporary African art. In 1981, Mr. Joe Berardo acquired more than 2500 sculptures that were displayed in a cactus garden in Pretoria (South Africa). As such, the Berardo Collection must hold many first, and indeed only, attempts at sculpting. A special point of interest are the sculptures by women artists. The female sculptors at Tengenenge sign under their own name which means they had an individual status as artist. In the case of Erina FANIZANI, for instance, it becomes obvious that she has provided her husband Fanizani AKUDA with the style he became famous for later on.

Paixão Africana A escultura em pedra do Zimbabué é uma forma de arte africana contemporânea que viu a luz do dia no início da década de 1960. Desde então, tornou-se um dos mais prolíficos movimentos artísticos africanos e alguns dos seus artistas são hoje nomes de vulto na cena artística internacional. É um movimento ainda em expansão, tendo entrado já na sua terceira geração de artistas. A comunidade de artistas de Tengenenge é parte integrante do movimento desde 1966. O acervo de escultura em pedra do Zimbabué da Colecção Berardo é uma colecção histórica, reunindo obras da primeira geração de artistas, representativas de um capítulo já encerrado da história desta forma de arte. Grande parte das esculturas data dos primeiríssimos anos de Tengenenge. Alguns dos artistas alcançaram entretanto renome a nível mundial. Todos aqueles que se interessam pela arte africana contemporânea conhecem certamente os nomes de Henry MUNYARADZI e Bernard MATEMERA, e talvez os de Fanizani AKUDA, Sylvester MUBAYI e Anderson MWALE. Em 1981, o Comendador José Berardo adquiriu mais de 2500 esculturas que se encontravam expostas num jardim de cactos em Pretória, na África do Sul. A Colecção Berardo possui, assim, um grande número de esboços escultóricos de carácter absolutamente único. Um aspecto de grande interesse é a presença de obras de escultoras. As escultoras de Tengenenge assinam o seu trabalho com o próprio nome, o que reflecte o seu estatuto individualizado enquanto artistas. No caso de Erina FANIZANI, é óbvio ter sido ela a inspirar ao marido, Fanizani AKUDA, o estilo que mais tarde haveria de lhe granjear celebridade.

The Cannons

of Faial

Built in the early twentieth century, the area in which ten cannons keep watch was never considered a fortress, but rather a local watch against invaders, or gazebo for visitors. It is a simple recreation of a military battery which includes ten eighteenth century English cannons. The cannons belonged to Mr. João Catanho Meneses (1854-1942) who was a famous politician and lawyer who served under the Progressive Party of the early twentieth century. The cannons were originally from British ships which were eventually dismantled. The cannons were left abandoned along the northern coast of Madeira’s coastline until the Meneses Family decided to collect them all and gather them up in their estate. It became a tradition to fire the cannons during the festivities dedicated to Our Lady of the Nativity. In due time, the government forbade the firing of such weapons due to the fact that it was regarded as a security threat. The cannons were eventually turned over to the jurisdiction of the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs and recognized as a ‘cultural heritage’ by the local government in 1996. As a tourist and local attraction the fortress area provides breathtaking views of a large stretch of the coastline, the center of Faial and, on clear days, Porto Santo, the Serra da Penha d' Águia and the northern part of Ponta de São Lourenço.

Deste ponto é possível observar um grande trecho da costa, o centro do Faial, a Serra da Penha d'Águia, a parte norte da Ponta de São Lourenço e em dias claros o Porto Santo.

Fortim do Faial Uma das antigas tradições da freguesia do Faial constituia no disparo dos velhos canhões do séculos XVIII e XIX existentes no velho forte decorativo da quinta Catanho de Meneses. O Dr. João Catanho de Meneses (18541942) foi um célebre político e advogado ligado ao partido progressista dos inícios do século, tendo ocupado por três vezes a pasta da Justiça. Nos inícios do século XX, esta família reuniu alguns canhões de ferro abandonados na costa Norte no forte/ miradouro da sua quinta. Estes anti-

gos canhões, predominantemente ingleses, eram provenientes de embarcações desmanteladas e, com o tempo, passou a ser perigoso fazêlos disparar, pelo que, por questões de segurança, se suspendeu a velha tradição. No entanto, em 1998, utilizando-se cargas de pólvora mais fracas e depois de terem sido testadas as suas condições pela equipe militar de salvas de Artilharia, os ve-lhos canhões voltaram a disparar. O velho forte foi entretanto classificado como valor local e alvo de uma recuperação

geral pela Direcção Regional dos Assuntos Culturais, refazendo-se as carretas de artilharia, dentro do modelo de marinha e sítio, das várias bocas de fogo. Todo o empedrado em calhau rolado madeirense foi refeito, assim como consolidadas as paredes e a muralha e reparada a casa de apoio central, então dotada com uma pequena exposição de fotografias de gravuras antigas da área, acompanhadas com um pequeno historial da família Catanho de Meneses.

Pico Ruivo do Paul da Serra

To the north and east Paul da Serra shares some of the wildness of Madeira's central range with huge and deep near vertical faces, to the south and west, however, it more gradually lowers to the coast. Out of this plateu, two summits rise some 3km apart from each other: Pico Ruivo do Paul, at 1649m, Paul da Serra's highpoint and Pico Bica da Cana, at 1620m only a little lower than its neighbour.

Pico Ruivo do Paul Pico Ruivo do Paul stands above the north face of Paul da Serra. It offers big views down towards the coast 1600m beneath. In particular the valley of Sao Vicente attracts the views. To the east, Madeira's central range rises above the valley pith Picos Ruivo, Casado, das Torres, Arierio and Grande making up a wonderful, rugged panorama. To the south, the swamps and lobs of Paul da Serra look like an endless sea of bushes and grassland.

How to get there With Funchal as a reference and keeping in mind that the regional road (ER. 105) between Encumeada and Rabaรงal is temporarily closed, we recommend the following route: Take the Via Rรกpida (VR1) towards Ribeira Brava; In Ribeira Brava, follow the Via Expresso (VE3) towards Ponta do Sol and Calheta; Once you reach the village of Arco da Calheta, at the roundabout take the first exit towards E.R. 222; In Loreto follow the signs towards Rabaรงal; Once there the walk is on the right hand side.


prominent peak pico ruivo

São 1.640 metros de altitude que quase nem se fazem notar, já que toda a envolvência do planalto faz esbater a elevação donde se tem uma vista privilegiado sobre o vale de São Vicente e todo o planalto do paul da serra, bem como os picos mais altos da Madeira, Pico Ruivo, Pico do Areeiro, Pico Gato, Torres, entre outros. Pode começar a caminhada junto ao Posto Florestal dos Estanquinhos, onde um belo bosque de pinheiros nos oferece uma agradável sombra nos dias mais quentes. As uveiras-da-serra e algumas urzes tornam o espaço menos estranho aos amantes da flora indígena. No Posto Florestal siga pelo trilho que permite chegar ao Pico Ruivo do Paul em pouco mais de 1 hora, sempre com calma e seguindo a sinalização. Apos a observação no topo do Pico Ruivo pode descer pelo trilho que se inicia na extremidade contrária à que subiu, o qual vai levá-lo até á zona de lazer das Fontes Ruivas, seguindo a sinalização. Deverá ter atenção ao piso que é um pouco arenoso e poderá revelar-se escorregadio, mesmo em dias de bom tempo. Ao chegar às Fontes Ruivas aproveite o parque de merendas que ali foi criado para fazer um piquenique.

Protea Cynaroides Info

Kingdom: Plantae Phylum: Angiosperms Class: Eudicots Order: Proteales Family: Proteaceae Genus: Protea Species: P. cynaroides Scientific Name: Protea cynaroides

These stunning plants, so often adorned with generous and impressive flowers, hail from Africa. These stunning plants, so often adorned with generous and impressive flowers, hail from Africa. The genus comprises around 100 species of evergreen trees and shrubs, and is a member of the family Proteaceae. The genus is named for the sea-god of classical mythology, Proteus, renowned for his ability to change his form at will. These striking plants bear longlasting blooms that flower over a long period, usually from autumn to spring. In favorable climates they are superb plants for shrub borders and containers. The beautiful flowers are highly valued for floral work and are grown extensively for the cut-flower market.

Description Ranging in stature from tiny shrubs just inches from the ground, to tall trees of 25 ft (8 m) or more, these handsome plants make a stunning focal point in the garden. The leaves are variable, ranging from oval to needle-like; they are often leathery, and can be light to dark green, blue-green, or gray-green. The bisexual flowers are borne in cone-like heads with colored leaf-like bracts at the base. They flowers mostly appear between autumn and late spring and are longlasting. Pinks, creams, and reds are the principal flower colors, though other colors do occur. Proteas need an open, sunny, well-ventilated position and a climate that experiences most rainfall in winter. They need a gravelly, sandy, or basaltic loam that is very free-draining and generally acid. Providing their cultivation requirements are met, they are relatively undemanding once established, and will tolerate light frosts. Propagation is from seed, cuttings, or grafting; the hybrid cultivars are usually propagated from cuttings.

A prótea-real é pertencente à grande e antiga família das Proteaceae. É natural da África do Sul, onde é a flor oficial, mas é muito popular à volta do mundo, devido às flores coloridas e muito grandes. O seu porte abrange desde 0,35 aos 2,00 metros, mas a maioria das plantas têm um metro de altura e pertence á família Proteaceae. As suas folhas são verdes e brilhantes e as suas flores são bastante duráveis, chegando a ter de 12 a 30 cm de diâmetro. Normalmente uma planta chega a produzir de 6 a 10 flores por temporada, mas podem chegar a ter até 40 flores. A flor central é rodeada de brácteas coloridas que variam do branco cremoso para um vermelho intenso e o tronco consiste em hastes grossas e grandes.

O cultivo das Proteas  Solo Esta planta gosta de solos bem drenados, ácidos (com pH entre 3.5 e 5.8), pobres em nutrientes (não precisa de fertilização), com textura leve a média e com uma profundidade superior a 60cm.  Rega Esta planta não gosta de ser regada em excesso, por isso as raízes não devem estar constantemente molhadas. Assim, deve regar a sua próteareal apenas uma vez por semana.  Localização A Protea cynaroides deve ser plantada num local com muito sol e bastante arejamento. A temperatura mínima que tolera é cerca de -3ºC.  Plantação As próteas são, habitualmente, plantadas nos meses de outono e primavera.

Hammerhead

(Sphyrna Zygaena) The hammerheads are of worldwide occurrence, but some species have more restricted ranges than others. The most widely distributed species is probably the smooth, or common, hammerhead (Sphyrna zygaena) which is a common visitor to Madeira’s deep blue waters. Description They inhabit shallow waters along the coasts, bays and harbors where the water is calm and the bottom sandy. The eyes are located at the ends of two thin protrusions, resembling a hammer. The caudal Info peduncle lacks keels. In some species the pectoral Kingdom: fins am black tipped. Of the nine species of hammerAnimalia head sharks, the largest is the great hammerhead (S. Phylum: mokarran) which may reach a length of 20 ft (6 m). Chordata Its head is T-shaped, being almost straight along the Class: front edge and notched in the center. Chondrichthyes Another large species, the smooth hammerhead (S. Order: zygaena), which is more typically seen in Madeira’s Carcharhiniformes deep blue waters, grows to 14 ft (4 m). The front Family: edge of its head is rounded and unnotched in the Sphyrnidae center. Genus: Fishing methods include slow trolling, drifting or still Sphyrna fishing with chum and baits that are oily or bloody. Species: Mackerel, squid and other baits, as well as artificial S. zygaena lures, may also work on occasion. They are viviparous and prolific giving birth to as many as 30 or 40 young at a time.

Tubarão Martelo Os tubarões-martelo são espécies pelágicas e encontram-se amplamente distribuídas por todo o Mundo. Ocorrem fundamentalmente perto da costa e nas camadas mais superficiais da coluna de água, em geral acima dos 300 metros. A distribuição geográfica dos tubarões-martelo abrange regiões tropicais e temperadas de todos os oceanos, mas grande parte das espécies ocorre sobretudo em águas mais quentes. A espécie Sphyrna zygaena é encontrada em todo o mundo incluindo em águas do Atlântico como na Madeira. O tubarão-martelo é alvo de pesca comercial e desportiva e é provavelmente capturado como by-catch (pescaria acessória) em diversas pescarias. É utilizado fresco, seco salgado e fumado para consumo humano. No entanto, na maioria dos mercados, a carne é considerada de qualidade inferior e há registos de ter causado toxicidade e envenenamento. O óleo de fígado é utilizado em vitaminas, a pele para trabalhos de couro e as barbatanas para a alimentação (a famosa sopa oriental de barbatana de tubarão). Parte do corpo é utilizado para a produção de rações animais nalgumas partes do mundo. O comportamento mais habitual destas espécies, quando confrontadas com seres humanos, é fugir ou manter uma distância de segurança, o que causa grande frustração para os mergulhadores, em vez de um sentimento de perigo efectivo. Não há conhecimento de muitos casos de ataques de tubarões-martelo em Portugal mas os principais alvos são os caçadores submarinos, principalmente aqueles que tentam manter junto de si a o peixe capturado.

As a writer his ocean-related short stories and travel articles have appeared in the American magazines Transworld Surf, Surfer and Water – where his fiction column Fishdaddy Chronicles was considered one of the magazine’s highlights during its fiveyear run.

Surfing in Madeira One of the most memorable sessions in the history of Madeira surfing occurred on January 25, 1995 at Jardim do Mar where Ithaka rode absolutely flawless waves up to eight meters. Photographs of the session by João Valente have appeared in publications around the world including the cover of Surf Portugal Magazine. The conditions which were some of the cleanest and glassiest ever recorded at the classic big wave point break, inspired Ithaka to write the song Seabra Is Mad, a song about Seabra's courageous performance on that day. Ithaka also wrote two other songs inspired by surfing in Madeira, "Eden By The Sea" and "Been Four Years".

Ithaka Darin Pappas is an American sculptor, painter, photographer, songwriter, vocalist, hip hop artist, writer, poet, record producer and surfer of partial Greek descent. Pappas was born and raised in Southern California, but later established himself in Japan, Greece, Portugal, Brazil and Mexico. The artist currently resides in California.

Portuguese equivalent of The Grammy Awards). In addition, the prestigious national newspaper, Publico, awarded his 1997 release Stellafly as "Album Of The Year" and considered his most popular song from the record Seabra Is Mad as both the "Song Of The Year" and "Video Of The Year". Publico also cited his debut release Flowers And The Color Of Paint as one of the country's Ten Most Influential Albums of the 1990s. In 1994, "So Get Up" was nominated for "Song Of The Year" at that year's Blitz Awards, and later climbed to 8th Place on Billboard's U.K. Independent Dance Charts and 52nd on Billboard's U.S. Independent Dance Charts.

Guinness World Records The Reincarnation Of A Surfboard In 1989, while living in Los Angeles, Pappas began one of his major art projects, The Reincarnation Of A Surfboard, a large body of contemporary sculpture work created using recycled surfboards as raw building material and repurposing them into contemporary wallmounted art pieces. The series to date, which is said to contain an estimated three hundred fullsized sculptures, has been exhibited on four continents and featured in hundreds of magazines and on many TV features.

Musical Projects in Portugal During his active years in Portugal, the artist's musical projects were nominated for a total of nine Blitz Awards (the

More than twenty years after its original release, "So Get Up" was deemed by Guinness World Records as being The Most Remixed Vocal A Cappella in musical history.

More Albums In 1998, after over six years in Portugal, Pappas returned to California where he recorded his third album called Somewhere South Of Somalia. Later, in Rio de Janeiro he recorded two more albums, Recorded In Rio and Saltwater Nomad. In 2007, he briefly returned to Portugal to record with former Underground Sound of Lisbon member DJ Vibe, providing vocals and lyrics for the track "You". In 2011, indie label Sweatlodge Records released Fishdaddy Flashbacks highlighting some of

the artist's songs from the beginning of his career in 1994 until 2011. In early 2013, Pappas produced his first all-instrumental album, Voiceless Blue Raven.

Story Series In addition to creating music, his short story series entitled Fishdaddy Chronicles has appeared in surfing magazines around the world including Surfer (magazine), The Surfer's Journal, Water, and Transworld Surf. In 2009, his short story "Miracle At Malibu" was published in the book entitled Surf Story, a collective volume of stories and surf culturecompiled by Robb Havassy.

Photography and Sculpture His abstract photographic art and body of sculpture work known as The Reincarnation Of A Surfboard has been exhibited globally. Between 2010 and 2015, the artist created most of his musical, photographic and sculptural works at Recanto Akahti, his small ranch in rural South America.

The Tomas Blots Omnipresent in all of Pappas' forms of expression are "The Tomas Blots." These are a series of eleven blot-like symbols that Pappas' father Tomas drew before him approximately two hours before his death on February 13, 1991 in Mesa, Arizona. These symbols appear in almost every aspect of his artistic life; on his record covers, in his photographs, sculptures and very frequently as collages.

Madeira Sports On the island of Madeira, a large number of sports are practised, both outdoors and indoors in the various facilities available throughout the island. The following sports are the main ones that are practised on the island: Football The first organised game of football took place in 1875 in Camacha, organised by the Madeira born Harry Hinton. Madeira has three football teams in the Portuguese League: C.S. Marítimo, Nacional da Madeira and União da Madeira. Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was born in Madeira and played for Nacional before going to Sporting Lisbon. C.S. Marítimo is considered the biggest club of Madeira and has enjoyed various campaigns in the UEFA Cup having recorded famous results against teams such as Juventus, Leeds and Rangers. Having finished 5th in the league in the 2009/2010 season, C.S. Marítimo qualified for the Europa League for the 2010/2011 season. C.S. Marítimo has nurtured great players such as Pepe, Danny, Jorge Costa, Tarik Sektioui, Nuno Valente, Ariza Makukula and many others. In 2003–04 Nacional achieved fourth place in the Portuguese League, their best classification ever. They repeated it three years later and are the only Madeiran team to finish fourth place

C.S. Marítimo

in the Portuguese League. Nacional was the only Madeiran team that reached the Europa League group stage (in the 2009-2010 season) until Marítimo reached the group stages in the 2012-13 season. Nacional plays in the Madeira Stadium (Estádio da Madeira), considered by CNN in 2011, one of the eight most unusual stadiums in the world. Besides Cristiano Ronaldo, other known footballers played in Nacional like Paulo Assunção, Ruben Micael, Maicon, Diego Benaglio and Felipe Lopes. Basketball In recent years, Madeira has had a considerable amount of success in professional basketball, with CAB Madeira having won numerous titles, especially their female team. CAB is often seen competing in European matches such as the FIBA EuroCup and former stars include Filipe da Silva and ex-Los Angeles Lakers player Ike Nwankwo.

Cabo Girão Cabo Girão is a lofty sea cliff located along the southern coast of the island of Madeira, in the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira. Cabo Girão is a popular lookout point, especially after a glass-floored viewing platform was installed in October 2012. The location is a popular starting point for hikers. It is situated less than two kilometres west from the centre of Câmara de Lobos, between the parishes of Quinta Grande and Câmara de Lobos. A diamond-shaped seacliff escarpment from 560 metres (1,840 ft) to 589 metres (1,932 ft) above sea level, Cabo Girão lies between two river-valleys that flow into the Atlantic Ocean. The escarpment extends approximately three kilometres between the urban sprawl of Câmara de Lobos to the east and the rivervalley of Quinta Grande in the west. Although brochures claim that it is the second highest cliff in Europe, at least five

European cliffs (Hornelen at 860 metres, Cape Enniberg at 750 metres, Vixía Herbeira at 613 metres, Preikestolen at 604 metres and Slieve League at 601 metres) are higher. There are terraced fields (Fajãs de Cabo Girão) located below the sheer cliffs, which at one time only accessible by boat. In August 2003, a cable car was installed on the slope of the cliff so farmers can reach these low-lying fields. It's not only Americans who can do crazy, reckless stunts. In May 2006, Portuguese base jumper and stuntman Mario Pardo performed a daredevil stunt by trashing a perfectly good bike when he rode off Cabo Girão, executed a fourteen-second-freefall dive (reaching speeds of 220 km/hr) and ended the great finale with a fifteen-second-open-parachute soar before landing safely at the bottom.

O Cabo Girão situa-se a oeste do Funchal. É um promontório quase vertical com 589 m de altura disponibilizando uma magnífica vista para o mar, para Câmara de Lobos e para o Funchal, razão pela qual é um local muito visitado. É, pelo menos, o sétimo cabo mais alto Europa (atrás de Hornelen com 860 m, do Cabo Enniberg com 750 m, de Crouaghaun com 668 m, de Vixía Herbeira com 621 m, de Preikestolen com 604 m e de Slieve League com 601 m). No sopé da falésia, por mais incrível que possa parecer, vê-se uma pequena área de terras cultivadas que se chamam Fajãs do Cabo Girão. Antigamente só eram acessíveis por barco mas desde Agosto de 2003 que os agricultores têm um elevador para melhor chegar até lá. Para os viciados em adrenalina este é um local privilegiado para a prática do parapente e base-jumping. O páraquedista Mário Pardo fez daqui um espectacular salto de mota em maio 2006. Foram catorze segundos, eternos, em queda livre, chegando a alcançar cerca de duzentos e vinte quilómetros por hora. Mais quinze segundos, já de pára-quedas aberto, até à segurança da praia. A área marinha, costeira e arribas do Cabo Girão têm um valor natural e cénico extremamente elevado, apresentando um elevado potencial para diversas atividades como o mergulho, o surf, a observação de vida selvagem, assim como para passeios marítimos de contemplação e bemestar.

Teatro Baltazar Dias After the demolition of the Grand Theatre, in 1883, the Madeirans started to claim the construction of a new theatre in the city of Funchal. On February 9th 1882, the City Hall of Funchal, made the decision to build a new Theatre, on the fields of the old St. John’s Market. The chosen project was elaborated by the architect Tomás Augusto Soler from Oporto. However, with its early death in 1883, the project was handed over to its fellow architect José Macedo de Araújo Júnior. It is unknown if the original project suffered any changes. The Italian architect and scenographer Luigi Manini and the Portuguese Eugénio Cotrim were in charge of the decoration and scenography. The theatre follows the typical Italian model, based on the “São Carlos Theatre” in Lisbon and the” La Scala Theatre” in Milan. The construction works were concluded on July 29th 1887, however the theatre was only officially inaugurated on March 11th 1888, with the exhibition of the zarzuela “Las dos Princesas”, by the Spanish Company of José Zamorano, from the Canary Islands. The theatre´s name suffered some changes in its early stages. Initially, in homage to

the Queen of the time, it was named “Theatre D. Maria Pia”. As a result of the Republican Revolution, the City Hall thought that the name of the Queen wasn’t suitable with the new regime and changed it to “Theatre Dr. Manuel de Arriaga” in November 1910.The chosen name was a tribute to a deputy of Madeira, who was the first elected president of the Portuguese Republic, however he didn’t accept the gesture and determinedly declined it. So, in November 12th 1912, the Theatre was renamed “Teatro Funchalense”, but with the death of Manuel de Arriaga in 1917, his name came up again, and the Theatre gained its name. In the year of 1935, the Funchal City Hall, presided by Fernão de Ornelas, decided once again, to change the Theatre’s name to “Baltazar Dias”, as homage to the great blind poet and playwright, born in Madeira and an essential reference of the Portuguese theatre scene. His name remains to this day, in a building that since its opening has been presenting our city with an unmatched architectural beauty, as well as, with activities and shows, that make this Theatre the biggest mark of the cultural life of the Island.


WHO WAS BALTAZAR DIAS? The theatre owes its name to the blind poet of Madeira, playwright of the second half of 21st Century, whose works have been represented in popular European acts, in Africa and in Brazil. The novels of Baltazar Dias, belong to a community of poetic traditions, linked to the history of European lyric poetry. He is regarded as the “nationalizer of the European novels”. The poet requested King D. João III, the privilege to be the only one who could print and sell his works. It is uncertain how many years he lived in Lisbon, but it is believed that in his late years he lived in Beira. His work was divided in acts, novels and ballads: • Auto Breve da Paixão de Cristo – 1613 (Brief Act of the Passion of Christ) • Auto da Malícia das Mulheres – 1640 (Act of the Women’s Malice) • História da Imperatriz Porcina – 1660 (The story of the Empress Porcina) • Auto do Nascimento (Birth Act) • Auto de Santa Catarina (Saint Catherine’s Act) • Auto de Santo Aleixo (Saint Alexius’ Act) • A Tragédia do Marquês de Mântua (The Tragedy of the Marquis of Mantua) • Conselhos Para Bem Casar ( Advices to a Good Marriage)

theatre teatro História Após a demolição do Teatro Grande, em 1833, os madeirenses começaram a revindicar a construção de um novo teatro na cidade do Funchal. No dia 9 de Fevereiro de 1882, a Câmara Municipal do Funchal tomou finalmente a decisão de edificar um teatro no terreno do antigo e extinto mercado de São João. O projeto do arquiteto Portuense Tomás Augusto Soler foi o escolhido. No entanto, com a sua morte precoce, em 1883, o projeto foi entregue ao seu conterrâneo José Macedo de Araújo Júnior, embora não seja conhecido se existiu alterações em relação ao projeto inicial. As decorações e cenografias ficaram a cargo do arquiteto e cenógrafo Italiano Luigi Manini, acompanhado pelo português Eugénio Cotrim. O Teatro segue o modelo tipicamente italiano, sendo um protótipo do Teatro de São Carlos em Lisboa e do Teatro La Scala em Milão. João Sauvair da Câmara, enquanto presidente da cidade, iniciou as obras de construção do novo Teatro, tendo o ato simbólico do lançamento da primeira pedra ocorrido a 24 de Outubro de 1884. O Teatro viria a ser inaugurado oficialmente a 11 de Março de 1888, com a exibição da zarzuela “Las dos Princesas”, da companhia espanhola de José Zamorano, vinda das vizinhas Canárias.

A denominação do Teatro sofreu na sua fase inicial algumas modificações. Primeiramente, como forma de homenagem à Rainha, decidiu dar-se o nome de “D. Maria Pia” ao teatro. Em consequência dos acontecimentos da revolução Republicana, a Câmara Municipal entendeu que o nome da rainha já não era harmonizável com o novo regime, tendo em Novembro de 1910 alterado a sua designação para Teatro “Dr. Manuel de Arriaga”. A atribuição do nome em homenagem ao deputado da Madeira e primeiro presidente eleito da República Portuguesa, não foi aceite pelo mesmo, que recusou terminantemente este gesto. O Teatro passou então, a partir de 12 de Janeiro de 1912, a chamar-se “Teatro Funchalense”. O volte-face na sua denominação, deu-se a quando da morte de Manuel de Arriaga, em 1917, tendo o seu nome surgido novamente no teatro. Decorria o ano de 1935, quando a câmara, presidida pelo Dr. Fernão de Ornelas decidiu mudar o nome para Baltazar Dias, em homenagem ao grande dramaturgo e poeta cego, nascido na Madeira, e referência incontornável do panorama teatral português. O nome mantém-se até aos dias de hoje, num espaço que desde a sua inauguração, tem vindo a presentear a nossa cidade com uma beleza arquitetónica inigualável e com atividades e espetáculos que o tornam no maior marco de vivência cultural da Madeira.

27

Baltazar Dias O Teatro deve o seu nome ao poeta cego da Ilha da Madeira, autor teatral da segunda metade do séc. XVI, cujas obras têm sido representadas em autos populares europeus, em África e no Brasil. Os romances de Baltazar Dias pertencem, pois, a uma comunidade de tradições poéticas entroncadas na própria história da poesia lírica europeia. É encarado como o “nacionalizador dos romances europeus”. O poeta requereu a D. João III o privilégio de só ele poder imprimir e vender as composições da sua autoria. Não se sabe ao certo quantos anos viveu em Lisboa, mas conclui-se que residiu, nos últimos tempos, na Beira. A sua obra divide-se, pois, em autos, romances e trovas: • Auto Breve da Paixão de Cristo (1613) • Auto da Malícia das Mulheres (1640) • História da Imperatriz Porcina (1660) • Auto do Nascimento • Auto de Santa Catarina • Auto de Santo Aleixo • A Tragédia do Marquês de Mântua • Conselhos Para Bem Casar
