The Book in honor of the centenary of the death of the writer Luís Loff de Vasconcelos launched today in Praia

Praia, Mar 30 (Inforpress) – The work entitled “Luís Loff de Vasconcelos, Almost Complete Work, Volume I, Opuscules” was released this Thursday in Praia and addresses the research and historical investigations of the writer, lawyer and journalist for 15 years.

According to the researcher and coordinator of the work, Larissa Rodrigues, who was speaking to journalists’ minutes before the public presentation at the City Hall of Praia, this 366-page book “rescues and returns” the research carried out by the writer from Maio Island “to the present and future generations”. He added that it contains documents and annexes that make a strong appeal for the commemoration of the hundred years of his death.

As he argued, it is necessary to “respect, admire and remember” the works left by Luís Loff de Vasconcelos, stressing that the problems of ancient times, portrayed in the work, have not been exterminated and, therefore, the population must fight for development and progress from Cape Verde.

“The first booklet volume, this collection of booklets has various themes such as meteorology, economics, hunger issues, claims against Portugal, it is an interesting work linked to the defenses of the rebels in Guinea. He managed to win the cause of the Portuguese State in 1916 defending the Guinean league, the rebels”, he explained, adding that he opened his first office in 1912 in the Alexandre Albuquerque Square.
