Jorge Brum do Canto Museological Centre
In October 2015, an heritage related to Jorge Brum do Canto was donated to the “Governo Regional da Madeira”, by his nephew Nuno Alves Caetano, representing the family.
The Regional Government took the decision to permanent open the center to the public, dedicated to the life and work of this illustrious man of culture, with deep roots in Porto Santo Island.
The donation is essentially made up of a set of documents and personnel, related to Jorge Brum do Canto and related to the memory of the relations of the Brum do Canto family, of Azorean origin, with Portosantense lineage.
The documentary set was deposited in the “Arquivo Regional” and “Biblioteca Publica da Madeira”, where it will be properly treated and made available to the public.
This exhibition aims to illustrate the multiple interests of Brum do Canto, such as: actor (cinema and television), film critic, film director, president of the Union of Cinema Professionals, musician, decorator, poet, ethnologist, gastronomer, ichthyologist and sport fisherman.
