  • This monument pays homage to Gil Vicente, the first great Portuguese playwright, considered the father of the theatre of that country, who lived during the 15TH and 16TH centuries, also dedicating himself to poetry, music, acting and direction. It was inaugurated in the year 2003 in the Alameda de San Damaso being baptized with the name "500 Years of theatre", being formed by eight masks that evoke the dramatic representation, exhibited in two shelves, placed in a structure in the form of pi, of 2.35 meters of Height by 2.30 meters wide. The monument has a great visual impact, but it is almost unnoticed, because it is on the sidewalk, next to the terrace of a cafeteria and in front of the showcase of a clothing store. I believe that a work that evokes an event of such importance deserves to be placed in a more dignified place.
