Rosia Montana Heritage Days 2017
This year, we’ll be spending mid August together again in Rosia Montana. We’re glad to be welcoming you here between the 12th and 15th of August
We, the volunteers of the Adopt a House Programme and supporters of the sustainable development of the area, will be putting our tools aside for a few days and are inviting you to cross the threshold of Rosia Montana. During the day, we’ve prepared 5 guided tours and interactive workshops. In the evening, we’ll be warming up telling stories round the campfire with the locals, watching movies or exploring the starry sky during the astronomy workshop.
On Monday, the 14th of August, we’ll again be marking Rosia Montana Watch Day during the Heritage Days, as we did in 2016. We’ll be opening the doors of the two exhibition rooms in the Unitarian Parish House (house included in the Adopt a House Programme) – The Memory Room and The Maps’ Room – and of the intro room of the Heritage Interpretation Centre, a initiative supported by Europa Nostra and the National Institute of Heritage.
The activities are open to all those who wish to discover or rediscover both Rosia Montana and Corna – the neighboring village – through their heritage and people.
