Journalist and historian Laurentino Gomes presents lecture on the construction of the Brazilian identity

Author of the best-selling trilogy 1808, 1822 and 1889, journalist and historian Laurentino Gomes gave the talk "The construction of Brazil from Independence to the Republic", this Friday morning (14), in the First Chamber's Sessions Room of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF). The exhibition is part of the program "Update Time", held since 2015 by the Justice Edson Fachin's Office.
