The President F. H. Cardoso Collection comprises the following archives: Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Ruth Cardoso, Joaquim Ignacio Baptista Cardoso, Leônidas Cardoso, Paulo Renato Souza and Sergio Motta.
The generic term COLLECTION designates a set of archives and activities developed on the basis of the information contained within them.
The Curatorship of the Collection and the company GRIFO Projetos Históricos e Editoriais established the principles orienting the treatment of the archives and the definition of the activities.
The work is financed by funds raised through the Rouanet law (tax incentives for cultural projects) or other private sources, including IBM which donated the software and the Fundação BRAVA which promoted the dissemination of part of its content.
