L.A., short for El Pueblo's Nuestra Señora Reina de los Ángeles de Porciúncula (Spanish for “The Village of Our Lady Queen of Angels of the small Franciscan Chapel of Porciuncula) is no longer a small village.
Don’t be fooled by its anarchical suburban look or its sprawling highways. The City of Angels has fascinated imaginations since the early days of Hollywood and the Golden Age of American film. The astounding diversity of its neighborhoods and of its surrounding villages -Santa Monica, Malibu, Venice - make the city a world apart, offering architectural and cultural richness, chic and popular beaches, ultra-modern museums, and colorful street art. At the heart of the world’s largest entertainment industry, Los Angeles breathes audacity and originality into any project.
