Lisbon with Fernando Pessoa

Pessoa's walking tour

On this trip we will discover the city of Lisbon through the life and words of Fernando Pessoa, walking through both the places where the poet used to go and the places mentioned in his woks. We will rediscover Pessoa through Lisbon, his beloved city, seeing also where the poet was born and lived. We will go through the most important places in Pessoa’s life accompanied by the words the poet wrote about the city: the houses where he lived, the bars where he met with artists and writers, the streets he crossed to meet with his lover Ofélia, and even the places where his heteronyms passed by (such as the Rua dos Douradores from his book Livro do Desassossego)… These places will be literary testimonies and “accomplices” from the man whose work identified Lisbon as one of the capitals of poetry.

Fabrizio Boscaglia is a member of the Philosophy Centre in the University of Lisbon, where he researches Fernando Pessoa’s life, thought and work.
