Photographer's Note

One of the most impressive buildings in Brasília is Itamaraty Palace, where government deals with the foreign affairs. The building, created by Niemeyer, is located in front the Big Axis and it is surrounded by a lake, the gardens were created by Burle Marx using only Brazilian plants. The white sculpture is named "The Meteor" and was created by Bruno Giorgi and in my opinion is one of the most beautiful modern sculptures of the world, made in marble.
The building was built between 1960 and 1970 and have a rich interior but I couldn't to visit it because Covid-19 rules. The navy soldiers take care of the safety but during a terrible event in 2013, during Dilma Rousseff government, a group of black-blocks tried to invade the building and vandalized it. It was one of the most sad scenes I saw on TV, but the mariners got avoid the invasion and the fire.

Um dos prédios mais belos de Brasília é o do Palácio do Itamaraty, que lida com as relações exteriores. O prédio foi criado por Niemeyer e fica localizado diante do Eixão, rodeado por um lago e por jardins criados por Burle Marx usando plantas brasileiras. A escultura branca é uma obra de Bruno Giorgi e é, na minha opinião, uma das mais belas obras de escultura moderna.
O prédio foi erguido entre 1960 e 1970 e possui um rico interior que eu não pude ver pois havia restrições às visitas por conta do Covid-19.
Quem cuida da segurança são of soldados da Marinha, mas em 2013, durante o Governo de Dilma Rousseff, um grupo de vândalos tentou invadir e incendiar este prédio, mas foi expulso. Veja no vídeo abaixo:
