In the framework of twinning between Lagoa of Algarve and Lagoa of Azores, an exhibition of traditional nativity shows from that Azorean municipality will be present from 30th November 2019 to 6th January 2020. In the seventeenth century appear in São Miguel (in convents and private houses) the first nativity scenes "lapinhas" built inside glazed boxes and in the next century in redomas. In these representations the Nativity, which constitutes the central theme, can coexist with other biblical scenes. In the decoration of these structures clay figures emerge from environments decorated with shells and flowers made by the religious. With the extinction of the convents in 1832 (1834 on the continent) the "lapinhas" began to be producede in the domestic space, configuring a form of popular art. With the opening of the first ceramic mills in the county in 1862, some of its employees began the production of nativity scene dolls in domestic workshops becoming the first of the county. The bonecreira art is today one of the ex-libris of Lagoa, taking away the name of the municipality and its artists.
In order for the memory of the hands not to be forgotten and the immaterial heritage is not lost, the Parish Council of Odeleite, in collaboration with the Social Association of the Parish of Odeleite, develops the 2nd edition of workshops on the "Sabores & Saberes de Odeleite", which starts already this Sunday, November 3rd, and focuses on the sweetness of this time - "Figs and Stars".
