The Tallinn Museum of Orders was able to significantly expand its exhibition of Brazilian orders with the addition of several high awards graciously donated by the family of His Excellency Joao Luiz Pereira Pinto the Ambassador of Brazil in Finland.

The Order of Rio Branco and the Order of Aeronautical Merit were awarded to the Ambassador’s father Carlos Alberto Pereira Pinto, and the Order of Naval Merit – to his father-in-law Joao Clemente Baena Soares, both high-ranking Brazilian diplomats and statesmen.

It was now possible to display not only the Imperial period of Brazil but also the awards of the 20th century. The Tallinn Museum is grateful to the family of the Ambassador for their assistance in promoting the history of orders and decorations and the culture of Brazil.
