he computerization of the collections of the Villa-Lobos Museum was necessary in order to optimize the storage, retrieval, growth and dissemination of the information relative to the life and work of the composer. In 1994, with the help of the CNPq (National Research Council), we began the building and implementation of the computerized system of the institution’s database, known as Villa-Info.
A new phase began in 2003, with the support of Vitae to make Villa-Info available in multimedia format, not only through the use of a new technology platform but also through the complete redefinition of the interface, making it more dynamic, consistent and reliable, with a broader search system. The site has also been redone to allow access to the database, with the added benefit of access to current, up-to-date information regarding the institution’s collections.
An important information is the fact that besides CNPq and Vitae we've been receiving, since 1988, the crucial support of the Brazilian Music Academy.
