Freedom House - Mário Cesariny is an artistic space and multipurpose museum that pays homage to the poet and surrealist painter Mario Cesariny de Vasconcelos. It is located in the historic center of Lisbon, Alfama and in conjunction withthe Perve Gallery, adjacent to it, hosts an artistic legacy bequeathed by the artist it is named after, including a collection that started growing in the 1990s consisting of different thematic groups dedicated to different artistic fields. It is a multifaceted space that is based on the unifying concept of freedom. 
Alongside works that can be defined as ‘orthodox’ Surrealism, in this space there is artwork focused on a range of approaches to exploring freedom, be it formal, narrative, epistemological, ideological, conceptual, political, or religious, by a range of artists.
