The Danish Agency for Culture has just published its revised 2015 magazine focusing on " Museums - Citizenship and Sustainable Solutions " .
The Costume Museum in São Brás de Alportel arises in this publication with an article by Lorena Querol Sancho and Emanuel Sancho, on the management and operation model of this cultural space located within the Algarve, Portugal.
This article is the culmination of a consistent practice in the field of Social Museology that has made this museum a Case Study for researchers and institutions. Several texts have been published in recent years. Everything is now available on the internet site of this museum in www.museu-sbras.com/docs.html.
It was probably one of the most dramatic events held by Algarve Classic Cars, Historic Regularity Rally, organized for 23 years by the Portuguese Classic Cars Club (CPAA) and entered in the calendar of the Portuguese Federation of Automobiles and Carting.
The program began late afternoon on Friday, July 10th, with the Casino Vilamoura circuit, integrated as the Murganheira Stage. Despite the heat, the public turned out in high numbers watching a great show with competitors as diverse as an Austin A35 with only a 850cc engine and, for example, the most powerful being the Porsche 911.

We have received reports of thefts that have, in the last week or so, taken place in supermarket car parks in the Algarve. One of these was in Aldi, Lagoa and another in Aldi in Almancil, and another in Aldi Lagos. There may be more.
The typical MO is that the victim is distracted, through someone asking directions, and another takes the opportunity to steal a handbag.
