III Itabira Literary Festival - Flitabira


Literary event with round tables, lectures, exhibitions and other activities in the Historic Center of Itabira, held between October 31 and November 5, 2023.

João Candido Portinari took part in the literary program with the 'Reading of letters by Drummond and Portinari', together with Pedro Drummond.

The 'Portinari Negro' exhibition, produced by the Portinari Project, was also part of the program. The exhibition brought together 42 reproductions of works by the artist who, in his time, captured the reality of a significant portion of the black population in Brazil. The works are arranged in structures two to three meters high, giving the feeling of a real open-air museum.

Flitabira was sponsored by the Vale Cultural Institute, via the Federal Culture Incentive Law, the Rouanet Law, of the Ministry of Culture, with the support of Itabira City Hall and the Brazilian Writers' Union - UBE.
