About Armando Taborda

Armando Taborda

75 years old - Born on March 22, 1942 - From: Viana do Castelo

I forgot almost everything I learned at schools and all along my professional and private life I have been living in a very intense and enjoyable mood around the world.

I am a writer (poet) and a critic of art. Up to now I wrote five books. The texts collected into them are fragments of my memory's remains for more than 70 years of life.

Although continuing to record emotions, more and more less frequent and slower, I don't know if I will have time enough to write a sixth book.
