Built in the 18th century by the Sinel de Cordes family, the palace that houses the Lisbon Triennale stands out for its palatial characteristics shared with the neighbouring Palácio dos Marqueses do Lavradio, seat of the Supreme Military Court. In the 19th century, the exterior was modified with the balustrade and neoclassical statues at the top, but it is on the inside that you find most of the changes, such as the staircase’s neo-gothic decoration. The attributes of the former lives of the building that was, among other things, a primary school, left their mark, especially those from the early 20th century, when it was the Italian legation that suffered a blaze. The undergoing renovation preserves its heritage, safeguarding those past lives and the memories it represents for the community through an intervention where new layers do not hide stories nor identities.
