Entrance to Vázquez de Mella car park in the heart of Chueca, with a red AIDS ribbon
The Vázquez de Mella car park on its namesake plaza has been transformed into its present incarnation by Italian architect Teresa Sapey, who was inspired by Dante’s Fifth Canto from The Divine Comedy. Lines from Dante’s famous work mark the car park walls in red neon, while the theme of the giant, wall-covering photographs is “love”, expressed through the its subjects’ various tender poses. An eye-catching sculpture sits by the entrance – a giant red ribbon, Madrid’s tribute to the fight against AIDS. Photo ©
