Brasília is undoubtedly one of the strangest cities in the world: built 50 years ago in the middle of the central plateau, the new federal capital of Brazil was entirely planned and is considered in the eyes of the world a jewel of architecture and sociological curiosity. But for thousands of Brazilians who were born in the city after 1960, like Carolina, Brasília is an astonishing... and concrete reality. Through her intimate look and her personal relationship with her hometown, the author brings an unprecedented, original and passionate portrait of the mythical Brasília.
