Santa marta

Every field has a story to tell. In the community of Santa Marta, with a view of the city below and Christ the Redeemer above, the hallowed field of Tortinho holds a special place in the hearts of the locals. Created 50 years ago, Tortinho was a place where children could play to their heart's delight. Over the years, the field fell on hard times, became a shell of itself, and the glory days came to a sudden halt. Three years ago, the construction of two unfinished buildings threatened to make the field a thing of the past. 

An intervention to save the field was needed. 

This love.fútbol story is one of redemption and new beginnings. Of a community coming together to breathe new life into its hallowed ground for new dreams and achievements to take place for future generations.

Unilever Brazil sponsored this project as part of its "Conectados pela Cidade" (Connected for the City) initiative in the fall of 2016.
