The Family

He appreciated the world of women as anyone else and he was often asked if he did not feel sorry for not having had a boy, by which he would answer with pride: I am a lucky man!

Lucky for us, the Dacianas, as we were known by friends.

More than the legacy as designer and teacher, he was the father of my sisters, husband of our mother and our pillar.

He taught us how to have a watchful eye on the simple things and the moments that, although brief, can transform the trivial in exceptional; The desire to find in each day a pretext to be alive, living from the intimacy of the relationships we create with people, with the places and with the objects that surround us.

1959 was at the Superior School of Fine Arts that met Maria Teresa, daughter of the architect Cottinelli Telmo and niece of the filmmaker Leitão de Barros with whom she would later marry that year.
