The Curitiba of Many People
Curitiba is a synthesis of many cultures, brought by immigrants from all over the world, who helped to build every bit of the city from the second half of last century. Welcome by this land which, at the time, had plenty of space to offer, they retributed with their hard work, knowledge, culture and traditions.
         
This is why Curitiba is formed by bits of many countries. A portion of Italy, for instance, can be seen in Santa Felicidade, in the architecture - that is where the Culpi house is, the first one in the district, refurbished as a Cultural Centre - as well as in the style of life, colourful and happy. 
          
Thousands arrive mainly during weekends to taste the good food, good wine, pasta and other atractions of the many restaurants and shops along Via Veneto.
         
There is also a lot from Poland, whose immigrants and their descendants are living all over the city, with some preference for the districts of Pilarzinho, Santa Cândida and Orleans. Their characteristics persist in the surnames of many curitibanos with blond hair and blue eyes. In the Pope John Paul II woods the polish memoirs are registered in the Virgin Mary of Jasna Gora Chapel as well as in the typical wooden houses turned into small museums of early immigrants utensils and domestic furniture.
         
The descendants of those immigrants and all curitibanos can still taste the pirogue and cooked pastries filled with potatoes and cottage cheese.
         
Japanese imigrants, curitibanos above anything else.
         
The ukranian descendants, with their blue eyes and long surname, are one of feature of the city. There is still a lot in Curitiba with a touch of German, Arab,  Japanese, Chinese, Swiss, Ucranian accents. The more evident signs of those cultures are found in the architecture, handcrafts and cooking. But in every corner of the city there are the sons, grandsons and descendants of the pioneers, perfectly integrated to a brazilian environment. Proud of their origins, but curitibanos above everything else.
