U: Yes!

What’s the best thing about an ordinary day?

T: Play, building things and watching cartoons!

What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever done?

P: A road trip with Aitor. I always have a lot of fun when I travel.

What’s your favourite star?

P: A shooting star we saw once in Viniegra with some friends. 
T: The ones that move, because they are special.

What would your ideal planet be like?

P: Like the one we already have but without plastics, without pollution and without ultra-processed food. We would live in green cities and people would move around on bicycles and electric trams.
T: Like Saturn, because it is very beautiful and because it has a shiny ring.

What food do you order on your birthday?

P: Depends on how I wake up, but probably something like Italian pasta and lots of summer fruits.

What have you learned from your children?

You live in Poblenou, a neighbourhood next to the sea and full of creative studios. How do you and the children enjoy it?

P: We love our neighbourhood, there are few cars, lots of bikes and it is close to the sea. We meet lots of creative friends on the street: some architects having a work meeting on a bar terrace; Nordic furniture experts chatting at their shop door; artists riding their bike with their kids; stylists carrying some clothes for some fashion shooting; video clip shoots, there’s always something happening!
