Cartaz 1 772 9999

Exhibit the Portuguese steamer fleet, resulting from cooperation between the Municipality of Ílhavo and the Portuguese Navy, means to evoke both reality and imagination about the Portuguese maritime transport, the magnificence and the failure of the colonial politics as well as to question the reasons that lead to the separation between Portugal and its “Navies”. The beauty and magnificence of the fleet of Portuguese steamers bring to mind voyages between spaces and times of a country that needs to reinvent itself.
