Estádio Plácido Aderaldo Castelo - World Cup 2014 Venue
Futebol arte is a celebration of diversity over uniformity, of the individual over the collective and indeed, of football as an art form, where great sides are orchestras, midfield generals are conductors and flying wingers are soloists.
The same way the Netherlands - as explained by David Winner in Brilliant Orange - as the most densely populated country in Europe brought its creative thinking about space in the everyday to its football, the spirit of futebol arte has bestowed great individuality to all facets of the game in Brazil.
Consider the wonderfully individual stanchions that previously stood at either end of Castelao, the maestro who lovingly designed them and all that's been lost to the game by replacing them with box-nets.
