1st Creation - 1987
The beginning of a Planet Nerino José Furlan, born in Galópolis, Rio Grande do Sul and awarded the title of citizen of Blumenau. Joyfully and creatively, he enjoyed the childhood of his children Guionardo, Guioberto and Guioney and built a bicycle to ride the streets of Blumenau. An admirer of the German culture and of the Oktoberfest parades, he had a dream: to take part of the parades. In 1987, he embellished his bicycle and invited three friends, Nilo, Luís and Zico. They borrowed German typical costumes and went to the parade concentration, ready to get in, but they were barred: NO ONE HAD INVITED THEM to take part of the parade! Persistantly, Nerino walked two blocks and convinced his friends to cheat the Organization, they lifted the cord and… went in! From then on, they fell on the public’s grace… One story! Yesterday their ENTRANCE was forbidden, today, their LEAVING the Oktoberfest in Blumenau is forbidden!
Beside, you can see the sketch made by Nerino in a napkin.
