Photographer's Note

Go and see the larger version if you want, since this one is very deformed....

2004 is the year of the 2nd most important event on football world (following the Worl Cup): the European Cup.

This edition will hapen in Portugal and for the event, new arquitectonic simbols are invading the participant citys: there are new amazing stadiuns and a few old ones were re-builded in order to receive the competition matches.

This one is situated in Coimbra, the portuguese "students city", and was remodeled from the original one.
This beautiful stadium is a Portuguese symbol, since is the stadium where the football team "Académica de Coimbra" plays, which is one of the most mistic teams in this country. In the past only had students from the Coimbra´s University playing on it and was one of the most important vehicles of the "freedom" message that blowed in Portugal to stop the ditatourial regime from Salazar in the 70´s. The Coimbra students academy is still nowadays a symbol of irreverence and inconformism and is the main voice for university students demands on the portuguese governments.

The photo of this mistic stadium is a merge of 5 photos to give the panoramic view.
