Alvaro de Sousa Holstein
The SF and Fantasy Cycle of Exhibitions and Talks want to change the image usually shared by people averse to technology, as we can’t forget the saga of discovery, the personalities of Bartolomeu de Gusmão and Padre Himalaya, etc., to ignore the feat of mankind and the knowledge associated with it, the existence of the portuguese contributions to SF and to science (as the air vehicle, the Barcarola and the first “solar machine”, the pyrheliphoro). The SF and Fantasy Cycle of Exhibitions and Talks also intends to promote the domestic production in the genres of science fiction and fantasy as Fernando Pessoa, Mário de Sá Carneiro, Jorge de Sena, Natalia Correia, Romeu de Melo or José Saramago already done.
