"Square in Ribeira Grande with globe covered with sidewalk honors Azorean emigration"
"A globe with four meters in diameter, covered with Portuguese stone, is the central element of Emigrant Square, in Ribeira Grande, a new public space in São Miguel."
"In the center of the new square, which is approximately half the size of a football field, the globe represents the Earth, covered with Portuguese pavement (white and black limestone from the Portuguese continent). The piece is based on a black basalt stone, 1.4 meters high and 3.5 meters in diameter. "
