Revisiting Fernando Lopes-Graça, his life and work, his thinking, his intervention, his extensive and diverse legacy, is the purpose of this symposium. We intend to promote an attempt at a critical assessment – albeit always provisional and limited – of the multiple dimensions to be considered and which intertwine with each other. We mention, namely: the relations between tradition and modernity, center and periphery, local and universal, art and politics; the links between music, literature and the other arts; the “identity policy”; the principle of freedom in life and art – “What I bet on is freedom!” – and the attitude of resistance; unusually intense and multifaceted cultural and civic activism. Let us also add the echoes or repercussions of this legacy and the changes in perspective that it is evoking in its reception, in the light of the trends currently underway in the composition and circulation of music, at national and international levels, naturally including digital networks.
