1950 - 1975


1950 - 1975


In and around São Paulo - Brazil

Between 1950 and 1975, Brazil experienced significant political, social, and economic shifts. The period began with Brazil hosting the 1950 FIFA World Cup, a moment of national pride overshadowed by the Maracanazo, Brazil's unexpected loss in the final to Uruguay.

In the following years, Brazil underwent rapid industrialization and urbanization, particularly during President Juscelino Kubitschek's term from 1956 to 1961. His ambitious "50 Years in 5" plan aimed at modernizing Brazil's economy, leading to the construction of Brasília, the new capital, in 1960.

Political instability persisted, with a series of coups and changes in leadership. In 1964, a military coup took place, establishing a military dictatorship that lasted until 1985. During this period, Brazil experienced economic growth, known as the "Brazilian Miracle," but it came at the cost of political repression.

The late 1960s and early 1970s witnessed social and cultural movements challenging the authoritarian regime. The government responded with censorship and repression. In 1974, President Ernesto Geisel began a gradual process of political opening, leading to the eventual return to civilian rule in the mid-1980s.

Overall, the years between 1950 and 1975 in Brazil were marked by economic development, political upheaval, and social changes that set the stage for the country's subsequent political and social evolution.
