The President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, came to the parish of Arroios, on Friday December 8th, as part of a visit to LARGO Residências. The century-old Barbearia Cunha, the oldest commercial establishment in Largo do Intendente Pina Manique, was the first stop in the parish.
After a tour of the LARGO residences, the President of the Republic attended a performance of GLUM – Grupo de Limpeza Urbana Músical – Arroiada, a project of this cultural cooperative in association with the Arroios Parish. This is an improbable orchestra composed of the parish’s Urban Hygiene officials who turn work tools into musical instruments.
Finally, at Largo Café-Estúdio – where he was received by the Arroios Parish Council, with the presence of the members of the Administration António Bacalhau and André Gomes – Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa spoke with the LARGO team and some neighbors who participated in projects with this cooperative.
