Interview with Ricardo Monteiro Lobato, Andréia Sanchez and Enzo Gandin


Youtube channel from the Faculty of Philosophy, Letters and Human Sciences, University of São Paulo (FFLCH-USP):


Ricardo Monteiro Lobato, besides carrying his great-grandfather's surname, has been a businessman for over 30 years. And it was precisely the books that brought Ricardo closer to his new life purpose. A book donation made to a social project led him to embrace his mission to carry on the entire legacy of Monteiro Lobato through "Viva Lobato", a project dedicated to keeping the memory and work of José Bento Monteiro Lobato alive. Ricardo recently released his first children's book "Emilia and Viscount in: Our friend João de Barro", in co -authorship with his wife and life partner Andréia Sanchez. Andréia has a computing graduate and has been working in technology for 25 years.


Enzo Gandin, former child prodigy child in Literary Studies, at the age of 8 was already interested in the life and work of Monteiro Lobato. Today, at 21, he is completing a degree in Marketing from University of São Paulo and owns the YouTube "SBTeen" channel. Recently, in 2020, he released the a single entitled "Cruel", available on Spotify.
