Back to news stories


This book aims to capture impressions that are hard to convey other than through stunning images and original stories in which history, landscapes and snapshots of everyday life merge into one.   Thanks to the painstaking and enlightening historical introduction, a tapestry in which past, present and future magically coexist is revealed. Encountering the sounds, smells, flavours, thousands of colours, varied fauna and lush flora of this country can be astonishing and of unparalleled intensity. Its ancient peoples and more recent immigrants are varied and many, reflecting the geographical backdrop. From the vast, lush Amazon rainforest to the mighty rivers broken up by steep waterfalls; from the untouched beaches and emerald waters of the Atlantic coast to the modern cities where life bustles relentlessly; from the colonial architecture that betrays a rich past to the desolation of the favelas, Brazil is an amazing succession of contradictory elements, of light and shade, of breath taking spectacles and grandiose scenery alongside glimpses of intimate beauty. It is a kaleidoscope of colours and faces that are impossible to forget.
