The State of Minas Gerais: The Golden Belly of Brazil
In the 16th century, Portuguese explorers discovered precious stones, diamonds and gold in the lush mountains of a region later named “Minas Gerais”. The state became, and remains today, the mining capital of Brazil. Many eminent and colorful professionals and artists, such as the architect Oscar Niemeyer, were born there. This presentation will discuss and illustrate the history and culture of Minas Gerais and Belo Horizonte, the state capital.
