The Minister of Culture, Pedro Adão e Silva, visited the Soares dos Reis National Museum and had the opportunity to get to know the museum’s new long-term exhibition project. The Minister also visited the temporary exhibition, Life and Secret. Aurélia de Souza 1866-1922. The exhibition featured one of the most remarkable women in Portuguese art, whose life spanned the 19th and 20th centuries. It was part of a commemorative programme marking the first centenary of Aurélia de Souza’s death, aiming to make her life and, above all, her work more widely known.
