    [s. XIV; del ll. invisibĭlis, íd.]

    adj Incapable of being seen. That which escapes sight. God is invisible. The man who seats on his wooden chair and eats, and the man who lays    
    down on his bed and smokes, are invisible. The sun, invisible due to a cloud.

             SYNONYMS: indiscernible, imperceptible, impalpable, immaterial.
             ANTONYMS: visible, perceptible.

Irene Solà


A group of Romanian immigrants live and sleep on one of the bridges that cross the Ronda Litoral, and that citizens use to access the Nova Icària beach. During the day, they go out to look for scrap metal or to beg for alms, and despite living on the street, the show great dignity in the way they make their beds every day, and leave their spaces clean and tidy.
