“Loulé in the timeline” returns on November 19, at 15 pm, to the Loulé Municipal Archive Professor Joaquim Romero Magalhães, with the conference “Public works in the term of Loulé (00th to XNUMXth centuries)”, presented by Marco Sousa Santos .
In a note, the municipality emphasizes that in Loulé, as in other towns and cities in Portugal, the modern period was marked by the execution of numerous works of a public nature that included, for example, the construction and maintenance of equipment and infrastructure such as fountains, fountains, sidewalks, roads, bridges, as well as public buildings such as the jail, the porch or the council houses.
The speaker at the conference thus intends to answer questions such as: how often were works of this type carried out, who took responsibility for their execution or how the materials, labor and money were raised to carry them out.
Marco Sousa Santos has a degree in Cultural Heritage and a master's degree in Art History from the University of Algarve, and is currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Coimbra.
In addition, he is the winner of several awards in the field of historiography, and is also the author of books and articles on topics related to Portuguese religious architecture of the Modern period and to the history and heritage of the Algarve region.
