A Praça da Conceição por Chiquinho Gama: o sentimento de um macauense

Com a colaboração inestimável do macauense Helder Marques o baú de Macau traz mais  informações sobre a Praça da Conceição. Helder entrevistou especialmente para o baú de Macau, Francisco Gama, de citação obrigatória quando se fala na história da cidade. Chiquinho Gama, além de conhecer a história de Macau, possui importante acervo fotográfico disponibilizado nos livros, sites e blogs sobre Macau.

Informa Chiquinho Gama que a Praça da Conceição foi construída na gestão do prefeito Albino Melo que a inaugurou no dia 7 de setembro de 1950. Por essa época funcionava no local o hotel de Dona Irene Queiroz, a farmácia Lourdes de Seu Alfredo Teixeira, a alfaiataria de Seu Graciliano Diniz, uma grande loja de artigos diversos chamada Nova Oriental de propriedade de Joaquim do Vale e outra loja, também de artigos diversos de propriedade de Manoel Benedito.

Havia ainda duas cigarreiras e o bar de Chico Amorim que funcionava no mesmo prédio do hotel de Dona Irene. Na praça aconteciam as festividades da cidade como o Fandango, o Carnaval, as comemorações cívicas como o 7 de setembro e as retretas domingueiras da Banda de Música. Diz Gama que a praça sofreu [sofreu mesmo] duas reformas, a primeira [década de 1970] no governo do prefeito José Oliveira que “a deixou pior” e a segunda [década de 1990] no governo de Manoel Cruz Tatá que derrubou o “bonito bar e a banca de jornal, para construir essa porcaria que todos conhecem”.  “E quanto aos custos, ninguém sabe, pois até hoje, todas as obras de Macau são superfaturadas, sem exceção”.

Francisco Gama tem razão em tudo que fala – é o sentimento de um macauense que realmente ama a cidade — a Praça original era muito mais bela e os prefeitos deveriam tê-la conservado, o que não fizeram. E custos das obras públicas em Macau sempre foram envoltos no mais completo mistério. O decreto 7.724/2012, de 16 de maio deste ano pretende acabar com estes mistérios .

  11. Consumers today have more choices and more power to support companies that give them something to love. It’s not just about access, convenience, or outstanding customer service anymore; these are requirements for brands and are increasingly taken for granted. People are now seeking brands that fit with their values and give them something to believe in–plus the best quality and price on the market.
