Dalmática has had an internationalization program underway for some years. In addition to the work already carried out across borders, we have several other seeds planted and ready to bear fruit at any moment.
Our internationalization project was approved in an application for European funds and part of the investment in this process received co-financing from Portugal 2020.
Panamá 2018: Metropolitan Basilica Cathedral
In 2018, we spent 10 months in Panama, where we restored all the sacred art of the Metropolitan Cathedral of that country: main altarpiece in wood, side altarpiece in marble, two oil paintings on canvas, a funerary monument in marble, two sinks of holy water in stone and a huge mural painting.
The building is in the area classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and was inaugurated by Pope Francis in January 2019, on the occasion of the World Youth Days. The President of the Republic of Portugal, Professor Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, was present at the ceremony.
Panama 2014 and 2015: La Merced Church
Between 2014 and 2015, we restored the altarpiece of San Pancrácio, in the Church of La Merced, located in the Casco Antiguo of Panama City, an area classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.
It was our first work abroad, carried out in two stages, in two consecutive years.
It worked as the seed that we launched in that country and in that geographical area and that allowed us to demonstrate the technical value of our teams. Even more, restoring an altarpiece dedicated to one of the most devoted saints in Latin America!
In addition to Panama, our internationalization process goes through several countries in Latin America, such as Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Cuba, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina. In all these countries we have proposals submitted and under observation. At any time, we can expand our network of work and intervene in these destinations!
Dalmática’s internationalization program also aims to work closely with Portuguese emigrants and Portuguese-descendant communities. The tiles, the gilded woodwork, Our Lady of Fátima and Santo António are marks of Portugal that we seek to work with and promote among these Portuguese across borders.
