This project was developed in Portugal dos Pequenitos, a theme park in Coimbra (Portugal), founded in 1940 during fascism, to exalt the presence of the Portuguese in the world through downsized replicas of houses and monuments of the country and its colonies. The series of photographs shows the empty inglorious interiors of the buildings, through which it is not possible to distinguish typologies or realise the grandiosity of the empire that Salazar wanted to acclaim.
