Abstract (in English)

The research “The Manor House in Lisbon and in Rio de Janeiro: Interior’s Anatomy” started in 2012, promoted by Portuguese and Brazilian researchers. It resulted in a common digital platform, in order to register, study and disclose Portuguese-Brazilian heritage, in a perspective of pedagogical and informative action. The project proposes the study of manor houses of the nobility and high bourgeoisie of the XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries, addressing various aspects of their interiors, at first in two regions of the cultural and artistic Portuguese-Brazilian world. This study has an original character as it proposes the integrated evaluation of the spatial organization of domestic spaces, their decoration, appliances and objects, as well as the daily practices of Portuguese and Brazilian elites, in their mutual influences, in an evolutionary approach during three centuries. The digital platform enlarges the reach of the project, allowing the sharing of information and quickly and easily disclosing the results of the research. The website contributes to the broadening of the dissemination channels of Portuguese-Brazilian heritage preservation studies, providing a detailed register of the current situation, as well as historical and documental data on the studied buildings. The platform search method allows, through filters, the grouping of the houses by century, location, architectonic and decorative aspects, as well as search for words within the texts. Following its own methodology, the project now presents 25 Portuguese and 16 Brazilian houses, with information about their exteriors and interiors, divided in categories (azulejos, stuccoes, decorative painting, etc.). It now introduces Goa, India, as a new investigation area, leading to original research on less studied cultural interactions within the former Portuguese Empire.
