Abstract
This article analyzes the largest environmental accident in Brazil, the rupture of the tailings dam at Samarco, in Fundão, Bento Rodrigues district, in the Mariana region of the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The study contemplates historical and socioenvironmental aspects. For the understanding and analysis, bibliographical and digital surveys were carried out, as well as exploratory research, with site visits and interviews with the affected population. Far from a complete and satisfactory solution, one can understand the size of the accident, its causes, effects and mitigation measures, as well as a perspective of awareness of the accident by the resident population. The study seeks to evaluate possible housing alternatives for those who have lost their homes and, with them, everything they have: their own life stories.
