3rd Postcrossing Meeting - Brazil

A few days ago some brazilian postcrossers had another postcrossing meeting, the 3rd one in São Paulo. Yesterday i've received a postcard signed by some of them.
The card shows the Municipal Theatre of São Paulo, one of the most important theatres in South America and one of the landmarks of the city of São Paulo.

It is significant both for its architectural value as well as for its historical importance, having been the venue for the Week of Modern Art in 1922, which revolutionised the arts in Brazil. The building now houses the São Paulo Municipal Symphonic Orchestra, the Coral Lírico (Lyric Choir) and the City Ballet of São Paulo.
The construction began in 1903 and lasted 8 years.
