The relationship we build with the city is not without images, imagination and affection. Based on this idea, we follow the trajectory of Valmir Santos, an ordinary inhabitant of the city of São Paulo, and the relationships he builds with the city and its other common inhabitants. In this work, we built the São Paulo of Valmir.
