Let’s start with the city that will host the opening match:

São Paulo

São Paulo Museum of Art​

Designed by the renowned architect Lina Bo Bardi in 1958, the São Paulo Museum of Art constitutes an emblematic project of modern architecture in Brazil and one of the most important buildings in the renewal of the city.

The museum is internationally recognized for its collection of European art, considered the finest in Latin America and all Southern Hemisphere. It also shelters an emphatic assemblage of Brazilian art, prints and drawings, as well as smaller collections of African and Asian art, antiquities, decorative arts, and others, amounting to more than 8,000 pieces.

It is the only museum in Latin America that is part of the "Club 19", which comprises the 19 museums with the most representative collections of European art of the 19th century, as the Museum d'Orsay in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome and the Tate Gallery in London.

Ipiranga Park and Museum​

Museu Paulista, also known as Museu do Ipiranga, was built between 1885 and 1890 as a monument to the proclamation of Brazil's independence from Portugal in September 1822. With its historic building, a collection spanning four centuries of Brazilian history, gardens inspired in Versailles, and a park, Museu Paulista is a top São Paulo attraction.

Altino Arantes Building​

The Altino Arantes Building, also called Banespa Tower, is an eye-catching skyscraper built as the headquarters of the Banespa Bank in the 1940s. For 20 years it remained as the tallest building outside of the United States. The roof has an observation deck, where one can see nearly the entire city of São Paulo.

São Paulo State Pinacotheca​

The São Paulo State Pinacotheca is one of the most important art museums in Brazil. It is housed in a 1900 building in Downtown São Paulo, designed to be the headquarters of the Lyceum of Arts and Crafts. It is the oldest art museum in São Paulo, founded in 1905, and established as a state museum since 1911.

After passing through a renovation conducted in the 1990s, the museum became one of the most dynamic cultural institutions of the country, lining up with the international circuit of exhibitions, hosting cultural events and keeping an active bibliographic production.
