Nationalist Cultural Identity and Tourism During the Portuguese Estado Novo
Abstract:Tourism and nationalist narratives seem to live off rather similar arguments based on history, memories, national culture and authenticity. This chapter shows how the Portuguese Estado Novo dealt with the tourist industry, in particular during its first two decades, and how this nationalist-oriented regime made use of tourist representations to justify and promote its ideology. The role performed by António Ferro, the head of the Official Board for National Propaganda and of the National Board for Information, Popular Culture and Tourism, as well as the organization of several institutional meetings and events, is discussed within this framework.
