"Part I of this book focuses on Jewellery, understood in a theoretical moment, thus containing texts which address the relation of the institution with this type of art, both in terms of commissions or attitudes taken towards its collection during the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and also publishing an artistic context to this collection. " In Part II, we can appreciate the richness of the textile collection belonging to the Santa Casa da Misericórdia do Porto, in the field of liturgical vestments and the ornamentation of spaces and religious ceremonies. In Part III, Dra. Maria da Luz Nolasco, responsible for the museum and museographic design of the exhibition, provides information about the ideas she had in mind when drafting the adopted methodology."
