“The City of Uneventful Days” by Pedro Ribeiro da Silva
September 28 | 6:00 p.m.
The author: Pedro Ribeiro da Silva is an Urban Planner by profession, he spent a long time writing reports, regulations and opinions. He got tired of writing in a conventional and technocratic way about cities. He began to realize that a story about the city did more for urban concepts than the thick volumes of a Municipal Master Plan. That a good narrative produces more effect than a numerical set of tables from the National Statistics Institute. That a written report, with people inside, is much more noticeable than urban planning licensing.
The novel “The City of Disappeared Days” is a unique way of narrating a chronology without time, where lives, even those that have disappeared, are infinite and those that emerge are renewed in each delicate event. The city, motto and stage of these 25 stories, responds, as always, to the vicissitudes of time: vigorous in crises, calm in radical demonstrations, beautiful in the elements, affirmative in despair, poetic in anguish, but always stimulating, even when a pandemic takes its toll. depopulate.
