Photographer's Note

Before the 1755's Earthquake, Lisbon suffered a major transformation. Nothing becames the same.

« Big squares and rectilinear, large avenues were the mottos of the new Lisbon. At the time, somebody asked the Marquis of Pombal the need of such wide streets. The Marquis answered: one day they will be small. And indeed, the chaotic traffic of Lisbon reflects the wisdom of the reply»
