Information on the Republican Museum of Itu

The Itu Republican Museum is located in a historic building where the Itu Republican Convention was held on 18 April 1873, a meeting of politicians and coffee plantation owners to discuss the situation of the country, an original landmark of the republican campaign and of the foundation of the Republican Party of São Paulo, which culminated with the end of the monarchy and the Proclamation of the Republic in 1889.

In addition to the republican movement and the first phase of the Brazilian Republic, it is also about the history of Itu and the region, with an emphasis on the 19th century, highlighting Itu artists of that period.
