PALATO is back. After a set of actions in several Algarve monuments in 2013, we now come back, with a new online presence that includes several additional contents and a set of actions that throughout 2015 will provide unforgettable moments in magical sites.

The first activity of this year , Cooking in the landscape in Sagres Fortress, takes place the next April 18th in the scope of DIVAM with the support of the Algarve Regional Directorate of Culture, with the participation of the archaeologist Rui Parreira and João Centeno.

Cooking in the Landscape is a performative action about historical and archaeological sites. A culinary show that takes place in locations with landscape in the background, addressing issues that place the food of each epoch and relates it with the eating habits of contemporary society.

In each historical site, an improvised infrastructure is set where the artist, together with researchers of each monument, develops a performative action in a Talk Show format, live cooking broadcast on the Internet, assuming the physical and virtual public as participants in the artistic creation process.

Starting with a menu inspired by the lines between History and Archeology, the unique characteristics of each site are considered, and the Landscape, Heritage and Social Factors are valued. Each session is preceded by a spoken tour to the site, developed in collaboration with the entities responsible for each historical site.

All sessions are broadcast live (, resulting in a series of virtual landscapes stored on the PALATO channel (in, which are the focus of the ongoing artistic investigation.
