In 1990, Jorge Selarón decided to renovate some of the steps of the stairway in front of his house, since they were in a dire need of renovation.
He began to apply coloured tiles, using the Brazilian flag colours — blue, green and yellow azuis — on the broken steps. What started as a hobby soon became an obsession to bring colour and energy to the this dividing line between two typical Rio de Janeiro neighbourhoods.

The 115-step stairway, covered with over two thousand tiles collected in over 60 different countries, has been mentioned in famous magazines, newspapers, travel shows and many other media!
