AAMAS 2017 Gala Dinner will occur on Thursday May 11.
Casa da Fazenda do Morumbi
Known among the residents of the Morumbi neighborhood as a beautiful restaurant, for many years the House has been part of the life of distinguished São Paulo residents. Considered a true historical relic, its constructions and gardens tell a bicentennial narrative of São Paulo. On a plot of more than eight thousand square meters, the House is a rare element in the urban landscape. It is capable of both preserving and reinventing the bucolic atmosphere and the refinement of the nineteenth century - this in the heart of the largest financial center of the country, cosmopolitan São Paulo.
Its origin takes us to century XIX, when Brazil was still a colony, part of the United Kingdom of Portugal. King Dom João VI donated the land to the Englishman John Maxwel Rudge, a tea producer. A legend tells us that the king was motivated by his great appreciation for the drink, aimed at instituting the culture in the region of Morumbi - and the House turned out to be the first tea farm in the country.
Subsequently, vines were also planted there for wine production. The regent of the Empire, Father Diogo Antônio Feijó, was responsible for the construction, dated 1813. More than a century later, in 1920, the property partially collapsed. Timely, whoever planned his reconstruction was one of the leading names of modernist architecture in Brazil, Gregori Warchavchik. In the 1990s, it was again restored and, in 1999, re-inaugurated.
