Tancredo Neves was a central figure for the Country’s democratization process and became a symbol in the fight for direct elections. In 1985, he was democratically elected in the first direct election after 20 years of military dictatorship, but fell ill and died before taking office.
The Memorial is divided into nine rooms, which showcase Tancredo’s political career, from an alderman to congressman to being elected President. In one of the rooms, you'll hear the Brazilian national anthem and you’re likely to get emotional, especially by getting involved with the political struggle of this character.
Stories and scenes of Tancredo's participation in the campaign for the return of direct elections are also available on the site.
