Muscle tone and cosmetic surgery, flashy cars and high fashion; Miami Beach has certainly changed since the early days. It all began in the roaring twenties when the wealthy and chic began to build fine art moderne villas, inspired by the Bauhaus.
After World War II, many GIs, attracted by the climate, came here to recuperate. In the 60s, came the Cubans, fleeing from Castro’s regime. Miami Vice is not a legend, despite the efforts of the intrepid boys in blue. The action takes place between the beach and Ocean Drive, where artists hang out, and the new arrivals dream as they watch film stars posing for the cameras beneath the setting sun.
