In 2003 Mestre Abelha began to travel in Europe, first in France, then in Holland, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, spreading Capoeira Angola. The collaboration with the Capoeira Axé de Palmares Group begins in Milan, which will lead, in 2005, to the birth of the Italian branch of the Escola de Capoeira Angola Cortiço do Abelha, where he goes several times a year to give lessons and internships. In 2006, following various meetings held in Perpignan, the French section of the Cortiço was born. Two major Escola branches opened in 2009: in Turin and Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
