HOUSE OF FERNANDO PESSOA
I’ll always be nothing.
I can’t want to be something.
But I have in me all the dreams of the world.”
Opened in November 1993, the cultural centre Casa Fernando Pessoa was conceived by the Lisbon City Council as a tribute to Fernando Pessoa and his memory; in the city where he lived and the area in which he spent the last fifteen years of his life, Campo de Ourique.
With its auditorium, garden, exhibition rooms, works of art, a library exclusively dedicated to poetry, in addition to part of the poet’s estate (furniture and personal items that are now municipal heritage), the Casa Fernando Pessoa is a small but multifarious world.
Its three floors host colloquiums, poetry readings, meetings with authors, concerts and theatre, lectures, workshops, art exhibitions, book launches and children’s ateliers in a programme of events which is as widely diversified as possible.
