Alba & Marisa
Hi! We are Alba & Marisa, the founders of GAZETE AZULEJOS. We work in the areas of design and culture and we are both in love with Portuguese tiles. Together, we are building the only public catalogue of the tiles that cover the facades of Porto: OS AZULEJOS DO PORTO. We walk around the city taking pictures of tiles to complete our archive. We are also researching about its history, making techniques and designs. Everybody should know this incredible heritage. And we are here to make it happen :)
