Irrequieta, Madalena Perdigão

Unquiet, Madalena Perdigão


Madalena was born next to the beach. She preferred swimming to sunbathing. She liked cows, baking and making music. She was also unquiet and, sometimes, she saw the future.
Madalena Perdigão (1923-1989) played a fundamental role in the history of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and in the Portuguese artistic and educational panorama of the second half of the 20th century. Unquiet is a biography book for children, that conveys some of what Madalena Perdigão’s life and work was about.
