Network Fundação Ricardo do Espirito Santo Silva Foundation

Created in 1953, the Fundação Ricardo do Espirito Santo Silva (FRESS) protects and promotes Portuguese decorative arts and related crafts. The foundation's Museum of Portuguese Decorative Arts houses an extensive artistic collection from the 15th to 19th centuries as well as 18 workshops where master craftsmen and women use traditional skills and pass on their expertise to future generations. FRESS also carries out its education mission through its School of Decorative Arts and its Training Centre in Arts and Crafts. Its conservation team restores works of art such as paintings, furniture and interior historic buildings, decorative tiles, ceilings and murals at historical sites across the country.
