Welcome to the biographical-literary museum Guilherme de Almeida House – Center for Literary Translation Studies. Inaugurated in March 1979, the museum was also the home of Guilherme de Almeida from 1946 until his death in 1969. It houses nowadays objects from the private collection of this poet, linguist, journalist and lawyer who is recognized as one of the intellectual founders of the Brazilian modernist movement. Casa Guilherme de Almeida was established not only to preserve historical artifacts related to the poet's life, but also to disseminate his works through the extensive cultural program designed to encompass all Guilherme's diverse interests and activities; courses, workshops, lectures, round tables and recitals provide the opportunity for visitors to learn more about his life and works. Casa Guilherme de Almeida is an institution which belongs to the State of São Paulo's Department of Culture and is currently managed by Poiesis – Civil Society Organization for Culture.
