the International Day of prematurity in museum but the purple color is imperceptible


Yesterday was the International Day of prematurity. In Funchal, the city council has teamed up and decided to light purple the Museum Henrique and Francisco Franco, which is dedicated to the study, conservation, presentation and dissemination of the work of the brothers Henrique and Francisco Franco, from Madeira island and active participants in Portuguese modernity. However, unfortunately, unlike another example that functional well with the blue in the Town Hall Square (also municipality's initiative), about the World of Diabetes Day, purple does not notice, is as weak as premature.

Ontem foi o Dia Mundial da Prematuridade. 
No Funchal, a Câmara Municipal associou-se e decidiu iluminar de roxo o Museu Henrique e Francisco Franco. E fui de propósito fotografar porque pensei que o efeito ia ser semelhante ao azul da Praça do Município. Mas, infelizmente, ao contrário de outro exemplo que funciona muito bem com o azul na referida praça (igualmente iniciativa do município a propósito do Dia Mundial da Diabetes) o roxo mal se nota, é tão fraco como os prematuros que pretende homenagear. Era só aumentar a dose de papel celofan nas luzes que iluminam o edifício.
De qualquer forma, porque este dia me diz muito, fotografei e partilhei neste site.
