The big news surrounding the Art Route is that it assumes itself as an itinerant exhibition, “I’ll be your mirror”. Totally conceived by Delfim Sardo, it will explore the city's architecture through paths that will guide audiences through a set of symbolic buildings that will also house other artists exhibits such as Fernanda Fragateiro, João Onofre or José Pedro Croft.
This year, the journey through Lisbon History will be taken throughout the stories of Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, itself a secular street. Like in previous editions, guided tours will follow a script created by Sarmento de Matos. The tours will visit iconic sites such as Palácio da Independência or Sociedade de Geografia, and other locations normally closed to the public, such as the Recolhimento da Encarnação.
This year, Lisbon Week will highlight one of the newest green spots of the city; Corredor Verde de Monsanto. Citizens are invited to discover a path that begins in Jardim Amália, on the top of Parque Eduardo VII, and ends in Parque do Calhau, in Monsanto. A project by landscape architect Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles, this route is one of the best examples of nature’s integration into an urban environment.
For a whole week Lisbon Week will have its “Petisco's Station” setup near Cais do Sodré. An exquisite open-air restaurant, where visitors can try the best petiscos right in Rio Tejo’s waterfront.
As part of an ongoing cultural exchange program, Lisbon Week will open the doors to some foreign embassies in Lisbon such as those of France, Spain, China, Morocco and Mexico.
