The state of Minas Gerais started developing in the late 17th century when gold mining expanded in the region. By 1897 the local government decided to move the capital city from Ouro Preto to a new spot, then called Cidade de Minas (City of Mines). This eventually became Belo Horizonte, a modern, rich and influential city. In order to reflect this, architects Luiz Signorelli and Rafaello Berti were commissioned in 1936 to design the town hall. The building is a fabulous example of Art Deco architecture prevailing in the 1920s and 1930s, with straight lines and an impressive clock tower. There is an art gallery in the building, and the foyer usually serves as a venue for events and exhibitions too.
