This Mission Structure “aims to define and implement a program to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 25th of April, with the broader purpose of celebrating 50 years of democracy in Portugal” and was created in May 2021, being initially coordinated by Pedro Adão e Silva, current Minister of Culture.

Speaking to TSF radio station, the IHC historian said that “it was a great honor to be invited to participate in this project” and pointed out that very diversified initiatives would be developed within its scope. José Neves, President of the Board of the IHC, highlighted on his social networks that Maria Inácia Rezola is “a historian with an insurmountable work on the historic period, but, even rarer, an academic and a person of enormous seriousness and personal integrity.”
