Businesswoman Rosalina Machado dies the day after her husband

It was an inglorious outcome for a life marked by success. Rosalina Machado, who made history when she became the first Portuguese woman at the helm of a multinational, Ogilvy, could not resist a long battle with lung cancer.

The 80-year-old businesswoman lost the fight against the disease last Monday, precisely the day after her husband, Francisco Tavares Machado, died, with complications resulting from the rain.

The couple, who are leaving a son, had been together for more than 50 years and were a regular presence at jet set parties. Therefore, his departure is now also mourned by several figures from the pink world, such as Lili Caneças. “Rosalina and Francisco Machado, friends of a lifetime. They lived and left together … ”, lamented the socialite.
The husband’s opposition
Considered a “pioneer” in the advertising sector, in which she made a career, Rosalina Machado said that she had to face her husband to build his professional career in the 70s. “I received an invitation to present a program on RTP and he did not let it work. One day I made the mistake of saying that I even made money. He was very indignant and said: ‘If it is to earn money, why don’t you sell peanuts outside the Alvalade Stadium on football days?’ “I told him that he had to respect me and that if he didn’t, we would have to separate. He understood. ”
