Photographer's Note

Inside the JK Memorial there is a room where they recreated the library of the former president, the one he had in his apartment in Rio de Janeiro, you can see his own desk, the shelf, the portraits, the objects he used.
In the shelf I found a copy of Jules Rimet cup.
Jules Rimet Cup was created in 1929 as a trophy in gold (3.8 kg of gold). It would be awarded to the best national football teams at each four years. The rule said if a national team had been the winner by three times it would take the precious trophy for their homeland forever, I guess they thought this would take many centuries to be concluded.
Brazilian national team got the cup first time in 1958, in Sweden, during the JK government. The second time was in Chile, in 1962, when I was born and the cup was conquered a third time in 1970, when Brazil was under military regime. The cup of gold was sent to Brazil and became inside a museum. During the terrible economic crisis of 1983 a thief invaded the museum, took easily the cup that had more emotional worth than economic one and melted it. This was only one of the many tragedies of culture in Rio de Janeiro, whose museums are ever in fire.
As you see some of the books are wrote in English and many in French, because JK was student for some time in France while doctor. Nowadays our most famous two populist candidates aren't able even to talk in Portuguese and even hate to read.
Can you see the autographed Lindon Johnson portrait in the reflections of the glass? Even the design of the carpet ?

Dentro do Memorial JK est uma sala que recria a biblioteca pessoal de JK que existia no seu apartamento no Rio de Janeiro, ali voc pode ver seus livros, a escrivaninha, os retratos e objetos que ele gostava.
Na estante vemos uma c髉ia da Ta鏰 Jules Rimet, cuja trof閡 original era feito em ouro e pesava 3,8 kg, criado em 1929 para premiar as melhores sele珲es de futebol do mundo. Dizia a regra que quem a conquistasse tr阺 vezes a levaria em definitivo para casa, acho que eles pensaram que isso levaria muitos anos para acontecer. O Brasil ganhou pela primeira vez em 1958, no governo JK, ganhou a segunda vez em 1962, o ano que nasci e ganhou em 1970, j no regime militar. A ta鏰 veio ent鉶 para o Brasil, foi exposta num museu. Em 1983 durante uma crise econ鬽ica terr韛el, um ladr鉶 a roubou facilmente e a derreteu. Enfim, apenas mais uma das in鷐eras trag閐ias culturais do Rio, cujos museus s鉶 frequentemente destru韉os pelas chamas e o descaso.
