This is the city where I was born. Lisbon is mysterious and bright as no other. She is full of colours, corners and views we never get enough of. This tray id the city’s “floor” and the pyramids are its hills. The squares may be many people, houses, streets and gardens. But the river as well. It may be combined as desired and it may accommodate what is desired. Lisbon was also, before Caldas, the city where Bordallo lived and worked. He was far from imagining what I would do, more than two centuries after, with his pieces. I hope he doesn’t mind, especially because this is a tribute.
