:: Heart BBQ

HeartBBQ

Chicken heart barbecue is a quite common delicacy here, but I’m afraid these ones didn’t belong to chickens.

Churrasco de corações de frango é uma iguaria bastante comum aqui, mas eu receio que estes não pertenciam a galinhas.

Recently, a mural by Portinari was restored in a building that now houses the Fiat Cultural Center. The edifice was formerly a government building and was reinaugurated with the exhibition ‘Barroque: Brazil-Italy : silver and gold’. Unfortunately photos were not allowed in this exhibition, but there was a second one showing the process of the restoration of the mural. In this other exhibition, stylist and artist Ronaldo Fraga showed some dresses with printed fabrics referring to Portinari motifs and also executed these balloons which were a recurrent theme of the painter. The balloons are part of feasts in honor to the saint.

O edifício era um antigo prédio do governo e foi reinaugurado com a exposição ‘Barroco: Brasil-Itália: prata e ouro’. Infelizmente as fotos não foram permitidas nesta exposição, mas havia uma segunda mostrando o processo de restauração do mural. Nesta outra exposição, o estilista e artista Ronaldo Fraga mostrou alguns vestidos com tecidos estampados referentes a motivos de Portinari e também executou estes balões que foram um tema recorrente do pintor. Os balões fazem parte das festas em honra ao santo.
