Motos de Portugal — Closing Event

At the closing event of 'Motos de Portugal', specialists, collectors, authors and other players in the Portuguese motorcycle industry gathered together for the launch of the exhibition catalogue.

The Motos de Portugal [Motorcycles from Portugal] exhibition, curated by Emanuel Barbosa, a designer and teacher at ESAD/College of Art and Design, sought to provide an easy understanding of the national production of motorcycles and mopeds, by creating an itinerary through time that puts Portuguese historical landmarks in the context of the history of motorcycles in the 20th century in Portugal and the world, offering an overview of the characteristics of these vehicles and their use. The exhibition was devised as a cultural experience whose wide variety reflects our own society. At the closing, specialists, collectors, authors and other players in the Portuguese motorcycle industry gathered together for a programme that included a talk, the launch of the Motos de Portugal catalogue, the presentation of the Lisbon Motorcycle Fest and the screening of the films Nossa Senhora das Corridas and Escape.
