Faro é uma cidade multicultural. Já foi terra de romanos, visigodos, mouros e, há muito tempo, de portugueses. Mas não só: um em cada cinco estudantes da Universidade do Algarve, por exemplo, é estrangeiro. Aqui também vivem pescadores e engenheiros, artistas e empresários, turistas que decidiram ficar e famílias que daqui nunca saíram.

Para entender o porquê, basta prestar atenção a estas entrevistas. “People of Faro” é uma “olhadela” à perspectiva da população local sobre si própria e sobre a cidade, trazendo à superfície suas histórias.
