Abstract: Corriam os primeiros meses de 2021, ano em que a exploração espacial entrava numa nova fase com a aterragem do Perseverance em Marte, quando o Jardim da Praça do Império em Lisboa compareceu no debate público à boleia de animada controvérsia. Tendo em conta o tumulto que o ano de 2020 trouxe ao mobiliário urbano de gosto colonial-revivalista, para evidente maçada das pombas já habituadas às estátuas de Robert E. Lee, Cecil Rhodes, Cristovão Colombo ou de Edward Colston, esperaríamos talvez um surto de revisitação crítica à vasta decoração monumental que sobejou da Exposição do Mundo Português de 1940.
It was in the first months of 2021, the year when space exploration entered a new phase with the landing of Perseverance on Mars, when the garden of the “Praça do Império” in Lisbon surfaced in the public debate in the wake of a lively controversy. Taking into account the turmoil that the year 2020 brought to street furniture of colonial-revivalist taste, to the evident annoyance of doves already accustomed to the statues of Robert E. Lee, Cecil Rhodes, Christopher Columbus or Edward Colston, we would perhaps expect an outbreak of critical revisitation to the vast monumental decoration left over from the Exhibition of the Portuguese World of 1940.
