Researcher: Bruno Martinho
Bruno is a PhD researcher at the European University
Institute in Florence.Before starting his PhD Bruno was 
Curator at Palácio Nacional de Sintra in Portugal.
His doctoral work explores the consumption of non-European 
objects on the Iberian Peninsula during the second half of 
the sixteenth century. Fall-front cabinets, made in India 
and consumed in the Iberian Peninsula, were used to keep
the most precious possessions of their owners, from
jewels to important documents, and, because of that,
they became the most important piece of furniture
for social manifestation.
