At the heart of the historical Contagem, we’ve built a square for storytelling: “Once upon a time, there was a yard of jabuticaba trees where folks went to spend some happy time and love life…”
Those are words almost never found these days anymore. That’s why the square aspires to be a joyous invitation for our city to become humane again.
The curves embrace the people and the green, and make us look inside ourselves.
