How Portugal globalized the world

Two years ago, the Smithsonian Institution’s Freer and Sackler Galleries in Washington DC put together a special exhibition titled Encompassing the Globe: Portugal and the World in the 16th and 17th Centuries. It explained “how Portugal brought the world together” during the Age of Discovery and its pioneering role in global trade. It then travelled to Brussels in 2008, and now, from July 16 to October 11, at last it is shown in Lisbon, at the Ancient Art Museum, where you can also see some additional treasures not shown in the previous exhibitions.
