" To read is the best medicine."
In the "Livraria Moreira da Costa" window display you can see the laxative medicine Doce Alívio, patented by Farmácia Moreno. The concept of this window display revolves around the feeling of "lightness" provided by the medicine: the articulated dummies hold large boxes in proportion to their height, metaphorizing the feeling of “lightness” in a fun and relaxed way. These characters are positioned over old books from the "Livraria Moreira da Costa". The chosen color is inspired by the word "Doce"- sweet -, present in the medicine’s name. Between "Livraria Moreira da Costa" and "Farmácia Moreno" - stores that exchange products and objects within the scope of Comércio Fora do Sítio - a continuity of color was established, in order to reinforce the connection between the two establishments.
