A Estátua do Combatente e seu gesso – dois cenários, mesma mensagem
Ricardo LOPES, Martim ARINTO, Agnès LE GAC
Em Lisboa, no cemitério do Alto de São João, mais precisamente no Talhão dos Combatentes encontra-se a estátua do Combatente, cujo gesso encontra-se no Museu Militar de Lisboa. Este gesso encontra-se pintado de cor verde de forma a invocar de forma mais veemente a estátua em bronze.  
Pretende-se relatar o processo no qual a Liga dos Combatentes procurou homenagear os seus camaradas de armas caídos na Grande Guerra e que culminou com a substituição da estátua original em cimento pela atual de bronze, uma vez que o contexto político e social em Portugal após a Grande Guerra não permitiu oferecer o reconhecimento do sacrifício dos combatentes, vivos e mortos.
Trata-se aqui de mostrar a mensagem eternizada e personificada por este soldado gigante, quer na sua forma em bronze quer na sua forma em gesso, que incessantemente, mantém-se sempre vigilante e sempre alerta, e estoicamente vai velando pelo descanso perpétuo dos seus irmãos que dormem no seu acampamento final.
When? 22 Abril 2017, 10h30 - 11h30 - Conferência e Visita Guiada (em Português)
Where? Museu Militar de Lisboa Largo da Artilharia,  110-468 Lisboa

O Mausoleu dos Combatentes da Grande Guerra
Martim ARINTO, Agnès LE GAC, Ricardo LOPES
O Cemitério do Alto de São João possui um importantíssimo simbolismo na preservação da memória da participação de Portugal na Grande Guerra, embora esta realidade seja para muitos habitantes e cidadãos um facto desconhecido. Este simbolismo passa impreterivelmente pelo Talhão dos Combatentes que por sua vez hostenta uma figura central que se eleva acima de todo o cemitério: a estátua de um combatente, em bronze.
No âmbito das evocações do centenário da participação portuguesa no conflito, realizou-se recentemente uma investigação científica que visou a componente material e imaterial desta mesma estátua. É no seguimento dos resultados desta investigação que convidamos todos os interessados a reunirem-se à entrada do próprio cemitério para uma visita guiada em torno desta mesma temática. Serão abordados o processo de realização e edificação deste mesmo monumento, o simbolismo que este caso reflecte na memória portuguesa da sua participação na Grande Guerra, e das adversidades que o contexto histórico e político despertaram no seu desenvolvimento.
When?18 Abril de 2017,  10h00 às 11h00 - Conferência e Visita Guiada (em Português)

The Mausoleum of the Combatants of the Great War
Agnès LE GAC, Ricardo LOPES, Martim ARINTO
The symbolism of the Alto de São João's Cemetery is quite important regarding the memory of Portugal's participation in the Great War, although this reality is for many inhabitants and citizens an unknown fact. This symbolism is particularly manifested in the Burial Plot of the Combatants, which in turn hosts a central figure that rises above the whole graveyard: the statue of a combatant, in bronze.
Within the context of the centenary of the Portuguese participation in the conflict, a scientific investigation was recently carried out. It focus on the material and immaterial component of this very statue. We invite all those interested to gather at the cemetery entrance for a guided tour around this subject. The manufacturing process and construction of this monument, the symbolism
that this case reflects in the Portuguese memory of its participation in the Great War, and the adversities that the historical and political context aroused in its development will be addressed.
