Photo: Albert Watson
At this exhibit, the public can see the rich world of Steve Jobs. There are pictures, personal objects, movies, reports and historical products showing how one of the biggest personalities of the 20th century thought and created. The inspiration for the exhibit came from a show on the Apple creator held in Italy; however, it has been implemented in a totally original way in Brazil. Presented by the Ministry of Culture and Bradesco, Steve Jobs, the Visionary is also sponsored by Cielo with support from Superga. Executed by the Fullbrand Italian-Brazilian agency with co-execution by the MIS.

And Moana is chosen by the sea to go after the demigod Maui, who stole Earth’s heart and triggered the curse.
