First Agro Museum in Brazil will be built in Uberaba

The city of Uberaba, Minas Gerais, will host the Museum of Sustainable Agro Alysson Paolinelli (MASAP). Construction is already underway on the Getúlio Vargas model farm, located within EMBRAPA/EPAMIG. The place promises to be an integral part of the history of Agro in our country and will provide knowledge, culture and great pride in this area that is growing more and more in Brazil.

The International Center for Innovation and Transfer of Agricultural and Livestock Technology (CIITTA) had only one good idea, to undertake MASAP in Uberaba, but the good idea is already becoming a project into reality thanks to the effective participation of Banco BRADESCO, and together they will bring the history of Brazilian Agribusiness and further enrich the agribusiness scenario in the country. The Alysson Paolinelli Sustainable Agro Museum will be an institution capable of welcoming and disseminating stories and memories of Brazilian agribusiness. Its mission will be to communicate to everyone the saga of Brazilian agricultural production in its historical, technological, scientific and human dimensions. It will be a space of knowledge aimed at disseminating the social role of Brazilian agriculture in its national and international perspectives.

“Preserving the history of Brazilian agribusiness is essential for understanding the hard trajectory that the country has gone through in the last 50 years, until it became one of the largest food producers in the world. In addition, the Museu do Agro Sustentável Alysson Paolinelli will play an important role in expressing the technical transformations for an increasingly sustainable and productive agriculture, which manages to align the preservation of natural resources, with social inclusion and the generation of employment and income”, emphasizes Cléber Guarany, President of CIITTA.

For Alysson Paolinelli, the museum taking her name is a big surprise and the project is a great achievement in the country that will offer knowledge and entertainment to all its visitors, “I was very happy when they told me that the Museum will have my name! The team that makes up this project under the coordination of CIITTA makes its realization a certainty of success”, emphasizes Alysson.

Also part of the project is the museologist and director of EXPOMUS, Maria Ignez Mantovani Franco, who says that the space will enable global communication about the excellence of Brazilian agriculture and the importance of its sustainable work that will transform the new generations. “The museum will be a space for continuous innovation that will communicate globally the excellence of Brazilian agriculture, as well as the commitment assumed on a global scale to act through partnerships aimed at reducing hunger in the world and prioritizing environmentally sustainable solutions. Its greatest commitment will be to transform the new generations into agents capable of producing food consciously and in harmony with nature, minimizing environmental impacts and actively acting against social inequalities.

Another great participant and member of the team that will bring the museum to reality is Dr. Roberto Rodrigues, who believes that the project will bring a lot of innovation to the public. “This project has already started big in its name, taking Alysson Paolinelli, who is the man who led the great transformation of Brazil, from a food importing country into a great food exporter to the whole world. The Museum will bring the countryside and the city closer together, bringing history and the entire relationship with the international area, conquering more and more market”, concludes Rodrigues.
