Abstract
Assinalando a aliança entre João V de Portugal e Filipe V de Espanha, a troca das princesas, em 1729, implicou um pomposo espetáculo solene, com o intuito de mostrar a força política das duas coroas ibéricas através de grandiosas festas. Comparando as fontes informativas sobre as celebrações realizadas em Sevilha, Lisboa e Bahia, pretende-se refletir sobre as funções dos relatos impressos, analisando diferentes parâmetros tais como o autor, a tipologia textual e as características editoriais. Elegendo a representação logo-icónica dos quatro continentes como um dos motivos mais repetidos nos programas festivos de 1729, mostra-se como estes componentes expressam o aplauso universal aos casamentos ibéricos, colocando em diálogo as representações simbólicas do Velho e do Novo Mundo. Apresenta-se, asssim, um exemplo expressivo da globalização artística e cultural do Barroco Iberoamericano.
Strengthening the political alliance between John V of Portugal and Philip V of Spain, the ceremony of the exchange of the princesses in 1729 gave rise to an impressive spectacle that demonstrated the power of the two Iberian kings, according to Baroque festival procedures. By comparing reports of the ceremonies held in Seville, Lisbon, and Bahia, this study proposes a reflection on the role played by printed festival accounts, taking different aspects into account including the author, textual typology, and editorial features. The logo-iconic representation of the four continents is a meaningful motif, since it is displayed in all the iconographic programs of the ceremonies. Here we discuss how these elements express the universal acceptance of the double Iberian marriage, suggesting a complex dialogue between the traditional allegories and the symbolic representations of the New and the Old Worlds. In this way, we outline a significant example of the artistic and cultural globalization of the Iberoamerican Baroque.
