Script for the exhibition "From Rome to Lisbon: An album for the magnanimous king". Conceived around the so-called Weale Album – a volume made up of a set of drawings, made in Rome in the 18th century, to inform the king of the progress of his orders for works of art – the exhibition, installed at the São Roque Museum, from Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa (SCML), is built around the key idea that is the journey between Rome and Lisbon in the reign of King João V, understood as a process of cultural and artistic exchange and seeking to recognize what actually traveled : words, drawings, works of art. Two hundred years after its loss, the Weale Album returns to Lisbon thanks to the sponsorship of its restoration, presentation and study by SCML, as part of a partnership with the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts in Paris, in whose library it is currently preserved. . The roadmap From Rome to Lisbon presents the exhibition and guides the reader through its objects, framing each section historically and artistically.
