Dia do Biquíni.
(Bikini) On July 5, 1946, the bikini, designed by the French designers Jacques Heim and Louis Rearden, arrived at the world market. The name is derived from the Bikini Atoll, where a nuclear test was conducted, a few days prior to the launch of the bikini. This inspired the designers, who felt that the introduction of their creation had to strike like a bomb. The first bikini model was Micheline Bernadini, a former nude dancer in Paris. Today, it is impossible to imagine (Brazilian) beachwear without bikinis.
History of the bikini

Revolt of the Eighteen of Forte de Copacabana.
Governor of Minas Gerais, Artur Bernardes, defeated the candidate of Rio de Janeiro, Nilo Peçanha, in the presidential elections. His election met resistance from the military command. Marshal Hermes Fonseca urged not to recognize the president-elect. The marshal was put in prison. At the same time, ‘fake letters’ from Bernardes, who heavily criticized the military command, were published in the newspapers. On July 2, a rebellion broke out in Forte de Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. The fort was under the command of Euclides Fonseca Hermes, son of the marshal. In response to the revolt the fort was bombed by soldiers from a nearby fort. Navy ships off the coast assisted in the bombing. Of the more than 300 stationed at the Fort, eighteen continued (seventeen soldiers and one civilian) to rebel. They marched from the fort, along the beach of Copacabana. Only two survived, although seriously wounded, the fire exchanges with the government army. The rebellion had lasted a little more than one day.
“Os dezoito do forte”
Elles eram dezoito… Os mais partiram
Tanto que a causa, enfim, viram perdida.
Elles – dezoito apenas – preferiram
Ficar, quando ficar custava a vida…
Poetas e heroes, à hora derradeira,
Como uma só mortalha ter quiserem.
Tomaram, soluçando, da bandeira
E em dezoito pedaços a fizeram…
Elles dormem agora: e, ao longe, sobre aquelles
Que os venceram, no forte, adeja outra bandeira
Porque aquella que os viu, a hora derradeira.
Lutar, morrer por ella, essa morreu com Elles…
