Ilha de Mocambique - Mozambique Island

"A journey to rediscover cultural, social, commercial and artistic relations.

Ilha de Mocambique, as we know it today, is the result of encounters and conflicts: symbol of violence but also cultural and artistic mixture.

This book gives a reflection on history, culture, art, poetry in a place that has been for centuries the meeting point for different peoples and cultures, a place where the different African cultures have met those from Europe and the East"
