The visit is a journey of discovery of a unique cultural heritage because it is so closely linked to the Institute's activities on behalf of children. The combination of exhibitsarchitecture anddocumented memory is witness to an uninterrupted history of care and help for children and families and a continuing relationship between the Hospital and the Institute, now a Public Service Enterprise providing services to individuals and committed to promoting the rights of children and adolescents through educational and reception services, training programmes and research and documentation services.
