Historians dispute when favelas started in Rio. The city, however, is commemorating the centennial of its creation. Nothing to celebrate there? You might be surprised. Focus of poverty and crimes, Rio's shantytowns have also been the cradle of samba and many other achievements of the human mind. They also have been the inspiration for movies, plays, literature and all kinds of art.
