Paulista Avenue is one of the most important avenues in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. Being considered the economic heart of the country, a great number of financial and cultural institutions are based on it. As a symbol of Sao Paulo's center of economic and political power, it has been the focus of numerous political protests from 1929 to the twenty-first century. As important as Paulista Avenue, the ocean has for centuries played a role as a backdrop, introducing themes such as hardship, disaster, hope and resumption.
