Apartment José Régio
Who was José Régio
José Régio, pseudonym of José Maria dos Reis Pereira, (Vila do Conde, 17 September 1901 - Vila do Conde, 22 December 1969) was a writer, poet, playwright, novelist, short story writer, novelist, chronicler, critic, daily author, memoirist, epistologist and historian of Portuguese literature, in addition to being editor and director of the influential literary magazine Presença. He was also a draftsman, painter, and a great connoisseur and collector of sacred and popular art.
At eighteen he went to Coimbra, where he graduated in Roman Philology in 1925 with the thesis The currents and individualities in modern Portuguese poetry, a thesis in which he valued poets such as Fernando Pessoa and Mário de Sá-Carneiro.
It was in 1927 that José Régio began teaching Portuguese and French at a high school in Porto and it was in that same year that he founded the magazine Presença, with Branquinho da Fonseca and João Gaspar Simões, which came to mark the second Portuguese modernism. He also wrote in newspapers and magazines such as Seara Nova, Ler, O Comércio do Porto, Diário de Lisboa, Diário Popular and Diário de Notícias, among many others, national, overseas, regional and local.
As a writer, José Régio is considered one of the great creators of modern Portuguese literature. In all of his work, he reflected on problems related to the conflict between Man and God, the artist and society, the Self and others. He built his powerful poetic and fictional art in a mystical tone and in an intimate psychologist with which he analysed the problem of human relationships and the individual's loneliness, while proceeding to a painful self-analysis.

Apartment Gil Vicente
Who was Gil Vicente
Gil Vicente (c. 1465 - c. 1536) is considered the first great Portuguese playwright, as well as a renowned poet. As a theater man, he also seems to have performed the tasks of musician, actor and director. He is considered the father of Portuguese theater, or even Iberian theater, since he also wrote in Castilian - sharing the paternity of Spanish dramaturgy with Juan del Encina.
Vincentian work is seen as a reflection of the changing times and the passage from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, taking stock of an era where hierarchies and social order were governed by inflexible rules, for a new society where subvert the instituted order by questioning it. He was the main representative of Portuguese Renaissance literature, prior to Camões, incorporating popular elements in his writing that in turn influenced Portuguese popular culture.
A sua obra tem uma vasta diversidade de formas: o auto pastoril, a alegoria religiosa, narrativas bíblicas, farsas episódicas e autos narrativos.
Gil Vicente retratou, com refinada comicidade, a sociedade portuguesa do século XVI, demonstrando uma capacidade acutilante de observação ao traçar o perfil psicológico das personagens. Gil Vicente é também um dos mais importantes autores satíricos da língua portuguesa.
Note that Gil Vicente's work is not limited to theater, but also extends to poetry. Several composers worked on their poems, such as Max Bruch or Robert Schumann, which demonstrates the universal character of his work.
