Thanks for my friends of the discord channel: “Feedback sincero” and “Sala do Templo” and thank you for Lucas Parolin for the feedback on Iconic
The narrative text: “Today in 2735, anyone who sees Ouro Preto floating with its beautiful arches, would be frightened by its history that almost completely destroyed this colonial city. Ouro Preto, a city known for its baroque architecture and for the emergence of a fever for gold, a precious metal hidden in its roots. Tons and tons of rocks were moved to mine gold, little by little, it was consuming the region. Tragedies were predicted and the collapse of a dam was only the first trigger for landslides to put the city at risk.
Constant protests and the eyes of the world on the small city put enormous pressure and the then new council of the small town judged and decided that whoever mined there should recover the city and its support.
Using advanced technology, they created huge antigravity platforms under the city and a structure that would protect the region from other climatic changes, thus preserving its history.
And finally, after this great tragedy 400 years ago, mining is banned and the forests regain their strength around the new technology. Nova Ouro Preto was rebuilt, preserved as a historical heritage and the city has still opened its arms to tourism.”
