Photographer's Note

The Forum of Culture mansion was built for residential purposes in the 20s by Dr. Clovis Mascarenhas, son of Bernardo Mascarenhas and director of Cia spinning and weaving Bernardo Mascarenhas. The School of Law has acquired the property in 1953 where it ran until 1972, when there UFJF installed the Forum of Culture.

Since then the town has lost its residential functions and has been serving the educational purposes. It has also neoclassical and eclectic style. The house has free inspiration in Italian villas and free from lot boundaries in style "neighborhood garden".

Today, the mansion houses the Theater Studies Center (CET / Group report), popular culture Museum, Art Museum and university Coral. The museum is in the big house since 1973, and has over 2,500 pieces, including collections of folk artists, religious images, Portuguese ceramics, toys, etc.
