The presence and actions of the Portuguese groups in Brazil, especially between 1940 and 1974, arouse a retrospective analysis of its meaning. Based on the configuration of the “Portuguese mission”, this article approaches the relationships between these groups and the Portuguese regime and the journey of Joaquim de Carvalho to the former colony as a visiting Professor at the University of São Paulo (USP) in the year of 1953, sponsored by the Portuguese Instituto de Alta Cultura, in Portugal. The participation of the professor of the University of Coimbra in academic events in the cities of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte enhance the interests of Brazilian and Portuguese opposition to Salazar’s regime while also advocating for an alternative to representatives of the intelligentsia of the portuguese New State, sent to Brazil. This debate results in the celebrations of the IV Centenary of São Paulo, in 1954.
