Abstract (in English)

A vast component of the heritage constructed by the Portuguese exists outside Portugal. Considering the historical circumstance of an almost planetary dispersion, the discovery of significant cultural testimony in the most recondite whereabouts has become recurrent. The large number of cases is associated, chronically, with a generalized ignorance – of the common citizen as well of the specialists. The examples vary substantially in their framing, from the situations of great reference in the national mythology to the productions confined to minority communities. Sometimes these achieve a notable physical expression, still actuating, and sometimes (although being primacy documents) those are nothing but feeble marks, to which not even the academic community gives the convenient characterization.
