The peacocks that live there are the center of attention in the garden of the Museu de Lisboa – Palácio Pimenta, in Campo Grande. This pleasant space for warm days now has a new attraction: open-air music and cinema in July, starting at 7 pm, with free admission. The dates are 6, 13, 20 and 27 July.

The program begins with a live concert by Luís Represas, founder of Trovante in 1976. His most recent album, “Miragem”, with nine tracks released in February of this year, will be played. At 9:30 pm, the film “O Fantasma da Liberdade” (1974) will be shown, which tells the story of a servant who prefers reading to his responsibilities with the children of his bosses Foucault.

On July 13th, there will be another concert with a DJ set by O Clube Do Cool and Cafeína, with jazz and soul rhythms. The film “Lobo e o Cão” (2022), by Cláudia Varejão, will be shown.

Club Makumba, with guitar, drums, saxophone, bass and double bass, will continue the program. The short films “Does work liberate?” and “April 25 – An Adventure for Democracy”, by Edgar Pêra, will also be shown.

On the last day, July 27, there will be a show with Kwenda Lima, presenting a ritual (Sam Yaay) with music and body movements accompanied by percussion. The last feature film to be shown will be “No Intenso Agora” (2017), by João Moreira Salles.

The Palácio Pimenta is located at number 245 in Campo Grande and is better known as the City Museum. It was built in the first half of the 17th century on the ruins of an old manor house. After the earthquake, several families rented the space, giving rise to its current name due to its association with the last owner.
