In the newly renovated Monastery of Leça do Balio, the Livraria Lello Foundation presents the exhibition “Act The Thought – the threats of disinformation”, co-curated with UNESCO MIL Alliance and the Inside Out international project.

This space of ecumenical spirituality presents a dynamic interaction between light and form. Built in white concrete, the 400 m² sculpture contemplates the “Viandante” (Wayfarer), which recalls the mission of this space as an appeal to one’s journey.
