He came from the other side of the world and found at Oporto his city. When he opened a store, he called it Bom Porto, Good Port, where one arrives and is happy.



Porto has long been crossing a cultural movement that is rare, in time, in quality and in range, taking Portugal as an all. Especially the area that has Rua do Rosário and Rua Miguel Bombarda as its core. To the point that, at here, Miguel Bombarda, there is a cluster of shops and galleries called CCB, as a joke to Lisbon’s CCB, the Cultural Centre; this is Bombarda Shopping Center and worth a long visit.

Just around the corner, going down Rua do Rosário, we found Bom Porto, that Philip-Didier Fouligny opened when he moved into Oporto. The interior shop/art gallery has earned this name as a reflection of the happiness that Philip-Didier feels in the city he has chosen, welcoming him. "It's a beautiful city, with lots of young and creative people, who do very interesting work. It's a culturally stimulating city,” told Philip-Didier to Lisbonne-Idée.


Arts and crafts, both national and from far far away, are the evident added value brought by Bom Porto.




Since when does Bom Porto exist ?

1 December of 2017.


What is the space concept ?

A Bom Porto is a gallery / shop with local and international art pieces. 


Where the pieces come from, and what’s the criterion of choice ?

Portugal and Europe, South America, South Pacific and Africa. The pieces are chosen according to my personal taste and must have to relate harmoniously between each other and to the space.


How much space in m?


With so many interesting shops in town, how do you overcome the competition ?

Bom Porto has a very special selection of pieces, that hardly can be found on any other shop in the city.
