Free Press Monument
The Free Press Monument is a gesture in glass.
Crystal clear, solid, but as delicate as freedom itself.
It represents a perennial fight
and reflects the culture of our people, based on common sense.
Comes from there this translucent, dynamic shape
Which tears the space in two moments:
One for advancing in the facts, in the truth,
And another, free to expose itself and speak loud at the world.
That is how a spot on the federal capital emerges
In order to shelter the International Press Center
But, mostly, it is introduced,
The home for the symbol of all journalists.
