Welcome Drink

Welcome Drink will be held on 10 September 2018 from 18:30 till 20:30 at Museum Gardens of the city of Lisbon (Jardins do Museu de Lisboa – Palácio Pimenta) adjusted to the Museum of Lisbon. The participants may enjoy walking through the garden and visits to some parts of the Museum. The place is easy accessible by Metro, it is located close to the metro station Campo Grande.

This renovated gardened area in Lisbon features larger than life size ceramic replicas of the animal kingdom inspired by Portuguese caricaturist and ceramist Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro, whose museum is located on the opposite side of Campo Grande. The 1200 works, including animals and other natural elements that decorate the branches, fountains and walls of Pimenta Palace, where Museu da Cidade is housed, were created at the Caldas da Rainha Factory and displayed by Portuguese fine artist Joana Vasconcelos. This renovation project by Lisboa City Council has a twofold purpose: the promotion of the Museu da Cidade, now more attractive than ever for visitors, and the work of Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro, awaiting discovery by the general public at this leisure and exhibit garden.
