Itatiba - "Itá-tyba" in Tupi, means plenty of stone, or even stony ground. It is a reference to the stony ground (ita = stone, tiba = a lot). It was in the territory of Jundiaí that began the story of the occupation of the city of Itatiba, whose lands were fertile. In 1786, twelve families from mostly Atibaia and Bragança began to open their sites in the woods and started planting. Itatiba remained suborndinated to Jundiaí from 1786 to 1813, but the relationship between the two began to cool off around 1850, when coffee was introduced in the city. In 1876, the town was made a city. After successive crises, among them 1929, coffee production declined and Itatiba started to adopt a more industrial profile. Currently, with the installation of a modern industrial district, the city follows this path but does not forget, however, agriculture is still very important.
