A chronicle of the life and legacy of Adriano Augusto Leandro, a prominent benefactor of Santa Casa da Misericórdia of Lisbon in the 20th century. "Geography of a Legacy" is a journey through the history of the successful businessman born in 1887 in Longroiva, district of Guarda. It begins in the capital where he spent the last years of his life, the city where he wrote his last will and testament, a text where he distributed his vast wealth among over fifty legatees, including family members, friends, organisations and institutions. A long list of generosity that reveals Adriano Leandro's express intention to contribute towards greater social justice in all the communities he passed through. These territories are the stopovers on this written journey: the Lisbon he chose as his home at the end of his life, the city of Torre de Moncorvo where he spent his childhood and part of his youth, and Benguela where he lived, worked and became rich in the first half of the 20th century. "Geography of a Legacy" is the 11th volume of the SCML's Benefactors Collection, an editorial series that provides information about the benefactors of the secular institution, men and women who, for over 500 years, have contributed to the mission of good causes of Santa Casa through their legacies, inheritances and donations.
