Xinhua News Agency, Macau, June 14 (Reporter Chen Xiao) A Portuguese-language magazine focusing on Chinese culture was launched in the Macau Special Administrative Region of China (considered a bridge connecting Chinese and Portuguese cultures).
Via do Meio, which means “middle way” in English, is a quarterly magazine published by Livros do Meio Publishing House in Macau, which specializes in introducing Portuguese works about China.
The inaugural issue included translations or comments on Chinese classical literature, poems and paintings by scholars from Portugal, Brazil and other Portuguese-speaking countries.
Carlos Morais José, founder of the publishing house and editor-in-chief of the magazine, said at Wednesday’s launch ceremony that the magazine aims to help the public in Portuguese-speaking countries better understand Chinese culture.
Jose, who was born in Lisbon, Portugal and came to Macau for the first time in 1990, said: “China has a complex, extensive and diverse ancient civilization, which can be easily reached through Mayo Street.”
The magazine is currently aimed at users working in educational institutions in Macau and readers in Portuguese-speaking countries and other regions.
The magazine is scheduled to be published in Portugal in September. ■
