Museum of the Portuguese Language reopens

Destroyed in a fire in 2015, the Museum of the Portuguese Language in São Paulo – the only one of its kind in the world – is being rebuilt and is expected to reopen at the start of 2020.

UNESCO called it the best communication project in the world in 2006. One of the iconic exhibits was Rafic Farah’s Tree of Words installation. It was a tree which had its roots in Greek, Latin, Tupi and other languages, while the trunk represented its current translation and the leaves symbolised the objects these words represent. Elsewhere in the museum, at the Praça da Língua, could be found the words of writers who had promoted the Portuguese language.

This museum sought to demonstrate the antiquity and universality of the Portuguese language, as well as the syncretism and identity of Brazilian Portuguese.
