What a curious name…
Why the name Amazonas?
“Amazonas is a name that has always fascinated me” says Francesca, “since I was a child I would fantasize about that enormous tropical rainforest with an opera house right in the middle of it – a crazy project carried out in the midst of the rubber-trade boom. Also, the Amazons were a lineage of women warriors of Ancient Greece. When the Spanish conqueror Orellana was descending the Brazilian river for the first time, he thought he had come across this mythical group of women. I’ve known for a long time that I would use that name”.
The first occasion came in 2004 with the founding of the audio-visual production company Amazonas Teatro. Years later came Amazonas – leisure + language + culture. “The name is very evocative without being restricted to one concrete thing. This is very appropriate for a concept aimed at both adults and children”.
And of course, it has nothing to do with the online-sales giant!
