Through 2009 | Photo Essay: The neighborhood
The Cova da Moura neighborhood emerged after the April 25 Revolution period. With the end of the regime and the return of returnees from the former colonies, the place, until then a field of growing wheat at the gates of Lisbon, began to change shape and become what we know today architecturally.
The neighborhood, like so many other, is home of orderly, hardworking and humble people, however it also has a dark side, that both, the civil associations and the Police department try to attenuate at all costs, either by inclusion or, in extreme cases, through repression.
This project, which remains open, tries to show what is the Alto da Cova da Moura neighborhood.
