As everything started...

To the edges of Paranoá, an artificially lake constructed to brighten up the low humidity of the capital, it has the registration of a Dom Bosco´s prophecy – an Italian priest, of Salesians Order. Dom Bosco said “ between the parallels 15o and 20o, leaving of a point where it´ll formed a lake, the engaged land will appear”. Well, Brasília is situated in the neighborhoods of the parallel 15o and the mysticals have the city as the “promised land”, glimpsed by Dom Bosco.

Only two traces...

From two traces, created by the city planner Lucio Costa, in a cross form, the sketch of a new city project was initiated that entered for History. After the cross form, the drawing of an airplane was the starting point for the plant of the city. In 1987, Brasília became the first modern city of the world considered by UNESCO as Historic site of Humanity.
