Monuments and Sculptures in the Square of the Three Powers in Brasília

As one would expect in a capital city, Brasília abounds with monuments, sculptures, and public artworks. ”Meteoro” (Meteor) by Bruno Giorgi is located in the reflecting pool in front of the Palácio do Itamaraty (home of Brazil’s Foreign Ministry). “Dois Candangos” (Two Laborers) by Bruno Giorgi is located in front of the Palácio do Planalto (the workplace of the president of Brazil) and was created to honor the immigrants who built Brasília. ”Justiça” (Justice) by Alfredo Ceschiatti is located in front of the Palácio da Justiça (home of Brazil’s Supreme Federal Court). The Juscelino Kubitschek Monument, honoring the former president of Brazil who conceived the idea of building the city of Brasília, is located in the Praça dos Tres Poderes (Square of the Three Powers – since it is located adjacent to the buildings housing the judicial, executive, and legislative branches of the Brazilian government).
