In the mid-19th century, the Itamaraty Palace appeared in Rio de Janeiro. The masterpiece of neoclassical architecture was named after its founder, Baron Itamarati. In 1899, the building housed the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In the 1970s it moved to its new capital, Brasilia. However, the people of the country still refer to their foreign policy agency as "Itamarati". And it's interesting in more ways than just its name. Why is Brazil's Ministry of External Relations, even in a global context, a unique organisation? And how was and is this reflected in ties with Russia? Alla Borzova, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor of the Department of Theory and History of International Relations, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, of RUDN (PFUR) Alla Borzova will talk about it in the studio of the project "BRICS: In the Mirror of Times".
The joint TV BRICS and GAUGN project received grant support from the Russian Ministry of Education and Science under the federal project "Popularisation of Science and Technology".
