The Chamber of Deputies will inaugurate an exhibition in memory of councilor Marielle Franco (PSOL), murdered in 2018, in Rio de Janeiro (RJ). The exhibition will open this Tuesday (14), from 10 am. The opening date of the exhibition is a reference to the day the parliamentarian was killed along with the driver of her mandate, Anderson Gomes.
A symbol of the struggle for rights for the peripheral population, Marielle will be portrayed in the exhibition through elements from her biographical collection, with photographs and excerpts from speeches that help to narrate different moments of her political activities. The show, entitled “Marielle Franco – in this place”, exposes scenes ranging from the sociologist and activist’s election campaign, in 2016, to the last activity in which she participated as a parliamentarian, on March 14, 2018, in the capital of Rio de Janeiro.

The images will be displayed in a tunnel in the so-called Server Space, where a timeline illustrating Marielle’s actions will be placed. At the end of the exhibition, the visitor will enter a dark area where he will have a unique experience about how the last day of the councilwoman’s life was, when she was killed.
The objective is to make the visitor feel the atmosphere of agitation that marked the term of office of the parliamentarian, which lasted just over a year. The initiative is also a way of crystallizing the memory of Marielle’s fight, strengthening the choir for justice. The exhibition is promoted by the Lauro Campos and Marielle Franco Foundation, an entity linked to the PSOL, has free access and is on display until the next 23rd.
