Santa Efigenia Ramp was one of the oldest parts of Ouro Preto and had failed to stand the test of time, the area was run down and in desperate need of colour.
Inspiration for this project was provided by local artist Manoel Ataíde, who had a deep respect for the history of the city. The challenge here was to add colour to the area while maintaining the real colour and essence of the Baroque period.
In the hope of keeping true to the essence of the Tudo de cor para você project painters who had been involved in past projects were called upon for help. The painters adapted well to the city, weather and customs during their time in Ouro Preto and helped make it a beautiful event. In total more than 130 people took part in adding colour to Ouro Preto.
