During the nineties, the working class and social groups began squatting in abandoned buildings in São Paulo’s (Brazil) downtown. Today, there are more than 40 different movements throughout the country, of families, immigrants and/or workers squatting in hundreds of abandoned properties.
On the Marconi's squat 13 floors, nearly 400 people wait for a dignified housing solution. Within it, the notion of home (a space of emotional relationships and identity), becomes fleeting in between of the memories and expectations for a more stable future. Marconi is a place where stories of life share common experiences of nostalgia and loss.
