Notes on the Geography of Brazil: Brasilia: Photo 23
A summing up by Maria Elisa Costa: "I believe that it is impossible to understand Brasilia without including the faith and the passion that were involved in its creation and implantation.... Everything pointed to the stimulation of individual expression, towards the collective. We were all part of a unit, full of hope, that was called Brazil." She quotes her father: "Brasilia is not a mere act of personal or political vanity, as in the Renaissance. It is the crowning of a massive collective effort towards national development... a people that was impelled with the construction of a new Brazil, looking to the future, and forging its own destiny."
See Montezuma, pp. 245-6.
