The narrow street called Rua de Santa Maria (Santa Maria Street) in the capital of Madeira, Funchal, is not wide enough for cars and, even if it was, tables and chairs from the many restaurants and cafes are taking up most of the space. This is the old part of the city, not far from the water’s edge and the Fort.
In an effort to revitalise the area, the local council has organised an art project in the street involving the doors of the buildings.
About 200 doors – into houses, restaurants, businesses, galleries – have been handed over to artists and designers who have been asked to ‘do something’ with them.
Many have a qr code with the details on the tinternet.
