The forbidden love of crown prince Peter of Portugal and his lover Inês de Castro became eternalized in the history of Portugal. Quinta das Lágrimas, in Coimbra, and Alcobaça Monastery, where the pair were laid to rest in magnificent tombs, are still inspiring places. Peter and Inês are reborn, in love as always, during Lisbon’s festivals!

Because it is of the Portuguese, father of broad seas, to want, to be able to
simply:be nothing. And be someone in a sea of people. Be a person. Flood.
Dry out. Cry. Float. Come up and dive in again. Be fished. Be gutted and
survive: the whole sea, or the empty destroyed waterfront – The whole, or its
nothing (In D. João Infante de Portugal, Message, Fernando Pessoa).

Immersed in the diversity of cultures that have always inhabited the Lisbon quarter of Mouraria, one of the most traditional neighborhoods in the city, this sardine maintains its Portuguese identity with its tiles and bush basil pots, so typical of Lisbon.

Avant-gardist and revolutionary the Porto sardine is a patchwork of landmarks contrasting from classical to modern, decorative to graphic, art nouveau to industrial. Azulejos (tiles), Ponte D. Luis, Barco rabble, the river Douro, multi-coloured houses, the hustle and bustle of the markets reflecting a fun cosmopolitan city that likes to move and shake with the times. Its own time!

The High Tide Sardine is an allusion to deep sea fishing, symbolizing
both the lull and the storm that diminishes us. The whole of the sea
inside of a sardine.

It was just an anonymous and pale Sardine. It sought colour and participated
in the “Festas de Lisboa” (Lisbon Festivities). As the event’s icon, it deserved a
monumental illustration. So, I tried to create a symbiosis between the sardine
and the Santa Justa Elevator. The Santa Justa Sardine, once anonymous and
pale, now parades in colour and tradition.

The sardine, with its silvery blue and black hues, darker on the back and lighter on the sides and belly, is found in the northeast Atlantic and the
Mediterranean Sea, where it dwells on coastal areas, between 25 and 100 meters deep.
It undertakes migrations in large shoals that protect fish
from predators during the day, in deeper waters, and move at night-time to shallower waters
to feed on algae and small crustaceans.
It reproduces from October to April, a time when sardines
are leaner and not so tasty.
The sardine is the most popular fish in summer festivals and fairs in Portugal, as well as the main species used in the
Portuguese canning industry.
Zé Povinho is now a superhero. After having courageously faced the austerity
policies, the interference of Troika and the corruption scandals, behold our
Zé is still standing. Standing tall, he shows courage and perseverance and is
ready to face all tempests with a sole purpose: to succeed. Super Zé, who is
alive inside each one of us, resists, persists and never gives up.

Portugal receives the sardine directly from the sea. In many parts of the world we’ve known them by opening the can and finding, as a graphite pencil box, an ordered queue of sardines… I had always the feeling that if I opened a sardine, I would find something else inside.

A regular presence on the streets of big cities, the Taxi sardine is always ready to drive us to our destination. With different shapes and colors all over the world, here we made it black and green. And if the green light is on, just stretch out your arm for one more ride.

The Tagus Sardine has the best view of Lisbon. From the river she sees the people,
the roofs and the Castle; she sees the bridge and the boats, and the departures and
returns that make the city live. She is a lucky Sardine – and, as Amália used to say,
She has water, she knows how to swim / I wish I were a sardine.
