the separation and the relationship, the banks and the bridge.
The rivers make it possible for the imaginary to
become real and, therefore, on its banks, such beautiful cities have been
This kind of tribute
to the Tagus river and the city of Lisbon aim that we know how to enjoy and
take care of them.”
