Description

 

Though utopian communities rarely live up to their promise, their bold attempt by remarkable people is a story worth telling. Francisco Piria was such a person. A Urugyuan businessman and son of Italian immigrants, Francisco was a politician, a tourist entrepreneur, a knight, a master of the great esoteric science—alchemical symbolism, and author of the first utopian novel of Uruguay. This film is the fascinating story of the building of Piriápolis, one of Uruguay’s great beach resorts, and the lifelong effort of this great pioneer, entrepreneur and visionary.
