The Museu Paulista of the University of São Paulo (commonly known in Sao Paulo as Museu do Ipiranga) is a Brazilian history museum located near where Emperor D. Pedro I proclaimed the Brazilian independence on the banks of Ipiranga brook in the Southeast region of the city of São Paulo, then the "Caminho do Mar," or road to the seashore.
A few months after the Brazilian Declaration of Independence, people started to suggest a monument on the site where the declaration took place, although they were not sure about what sort of memorial construction to build.
In 1884, Italian architect Tommaso Gaudenzio Bezzi, who was hired to develop the project, chose to build an eclectic-styled construction similar to the French Palace of Versailles with impressive and perfectly manicured gardens and fountain.

momento di tranquillità ben ripreso nella passeggiata dei due giovani.
Buono il POV con la prospettiva del viale sui giardini,

Um ângulo não muito visto dos jardins do Museu do Ipiranga!
Uma foto interessante e bonita!
Preto & branco, pdv, composição e nitidez são destaques! O manuseio da luz difícil tb está bom!
Parabéns, abração e até mais,
