The Ria shapes a whole territory. Shapes it with life and support. But it’s the human hand and inventiveness that provides the Ria with sustainability and survival. Ria gives to Man and Man, generous, takes care of the Ria. With passion. The history of the region starts with the Ria (the River) and only then follows its course.

Winning an award at the festival is even more gratifying, for the recognition of our work among fellow professionals and general public alike. After several years of participations at the festival and with more than 10 awards received, Ideias Com Pernas has seen its name highlighted in the media, its work became more appreciated and the promotion of its awarded clients ended up becoming a major asset.” David Mendes
