Hi, My name is Fabricio, I am from Brazil, and I have just completed the 32,000 piece puzzle!

I started it on March 5, 2011 and finished on October 21, 2012.
It took so long because between two packs I took some break, and also wanted to assemble other puzzles. I also had a long period last year without assembling anything because I got married - from the preparation until coming back from the honeymoon, almost 4 months without touching a sole piece. In the meantime, I also moved from Limeira to Campinas, two cities close to São Paulo, and the puzzle had to be assembled in both cities.Fabricio Cardoso - Brazil - Worlds Largest Puzzle

This was the second huge puzzle I assembled - I've also done the 9,000 pieces Bombardment of Algiers in 2010/11. But the experience was completely different! It took some time to understand how I should sort and find the right pieces. I estimated 80 assembling hours for the first pack and 50 for the others (I have not used patterns from previous packs).

Most of the time I was alone, but in some packs I was helped by my wife, my sister, my nephews, and even my 89-year-old grandmother for sorting! Not for all the packs, I took automatic photos and prepared quickmotion videos:
This is the last one .. the others are in the same channel:

It was just great to have it finished. I still don't have a wall to fix it, so what I could do was to assemble in my parents' garage and to unassemble right after. I hope to have a place one day to fix it for good!
