Tarrafal de São Nicolau, Feb 5 (Inforpress) – Pedro Corsino de Azevedo High School, in Tarrafal de São Nicolau, celebrated today the day of its patron with the inauguration of a bust with the name of the poet and writer Pedro Corsino de Azevedo, and various activities.
According to the director of that educational institution, Sara Brito, it is with great satisfaction that the academic community saw today lift a bust in “honor” of its patron and a literary figure, although “little known”.
For Sara Brito, this gesture also represented a way to disseminate the image of the poet and writer, since the figure was already known internally, through the interpretation of texts in Portuguese classes, now it would be a way to do it externally. The celebrations were marked by various cultural, sporting and recreational activities, a fair with blood pressure and blood glucose measurement, weighing, artistic exhibitions, among others. However, the unveiling of the bust was the high point of the entire festivities program.
The solemnity of the act was marked by the declamation of poems by the author published in the Claridade magazine between the years 1947/48, namely, “Galinha branca”, “Terra Longe”, “Conquista”, “Luz”, “Renascença”, “Abandono” and “Liberdade”.
