The arrival in Christiania was quiet and comfortable. Walking through the Prinsessegade Road after get out of the metro, I could see the first wood gateway. There was written in golden and irregular wood: Christiania. At the first moment, it sounds like a land for the dreams and the fantasy.
In this evening, the music's presence was notable. In the main square which I don't even know the name, was happening a little show. In this sunny Sunday, the rock with shrill guitars seems to be the background for the casual meeting of children, teenagers, adults and elderly. The people are on benches, on the floor, on the bikes, on the hills and on the sliders deep in the woods. The freedom doesn’t seem to have a finish in here...even the trees are decorated with shinnies.
The rivers, the green in high size and the old storages made up in bricks, isolate Christiania from Copenhagen. Getting in this warm and colored environment leaves to forget we're in European Union and so, we delight the nature and the casual.
My intention was start my job since that moment but I was advised by one of the young boys that I could not shot in there. He showed me the many advises "No photo please" that I couldn't read due my distraction. I ask myself how I should work when the videos and photos are so essential to me...
30 days in Christiania... This is the period of time I intends to be at this city. For me, a urban planner, it looks much more like a small village than a city.
