Festival Giacometti

There is a strong connection between Michel Giacometti and Ferreira do Alentejo, where he made several collections related to the” cante “in Peroguarda, Ferreira and Figueira dos Cavaleiros in 1968. The deep ties he established with the local community in Peroguarda, where he created different friendships, led him to choose the small white village as his last home. The festival with his name has a diverse program in the fields of music, food and wine, art, dance, anthropology and cinema. We want to take care of the roots and grow new shoots, to caress the elderly and appreciate the younger, to protect the material and immaterial heritage and to give thanks for the exchange of experiences and knowledge between local people and people from all backgrounds. In this immense plain, on the far western Europe, we want to be what we are: solemn and fearless. Together ww will make it.
