A historical facade with mural works


The Museum "Casa Muresenilor" of Brasov in collaboration with the County Council of Brasov, have worked on a Project called "The Historical Façade ? The Pilot Project on the Diversification of the Cultural and Tourist Offer in the City of Brasov", funded by the National Cultural Fund Administration. Half a millennium of history of the city was integrated in one single work created on an interior courtyard wall, thus enhancing for the first time the value of such a space.

The history of suits in Braşov

"The Project`s goal aimed at diversifying the cultural and tourist offer of the city of Brasov through a large scale (25 m x 2 m = 50 sq.m.) historical mural work applied on the dead wall of the interior courtyard of the building of the Museum "Casa Muresenilor", which is under our administration. The building is situated in the historical centre of the city (Piata Sfatului) where there are several tourist attractions. This mural work adds up to these attractions and it is based on a research report about the evolution of the historic costume in Brasov, between centuries 13th and 19th. The mural work was performed by four plastic artists selected by our partner the Association Urban Art Depot and the Agency for Sustainable Development of the County of Brasov," said Mr. Aristotel Cancescu, President of the County Council of Brasov.

Diversification of the visual offer

"Spectacular mural scenes have been created in tourist cities from many countries more visited than our country, thus becoming attraction sites worthy of being taken a picture as a souvenir. We are naturally attracted by images and not by texts, this is why we consider that the diversification of the visual offer in Brasov can be a good example for other organizations and cities, as this work of art has never been seen before in Brasov or Romania," said Mr. Valer Rus, Manager of the Museum "Casa Muresenilor" of Brasov.

An original unprecedented project

"The Agency for the Sustainable Development of the County of Brasov will conduct a major promotional campaign for this original Project "The Historical Facade". The Project is the only one of this kind in Romania and features strong interdisciplinary characteristics as a result of the collaboration between historians, artists and tourism promoters. Unlike other products whose results are project specific, namely limited in time, the main product of this Project will last forever on the dead wall of the building situated in 25 Piata Sfatului. The implementation of the cultural project aims at developing the cultural and tourist itineraries of the city of Brasov by adding a new place of interest, as well as increasing the number of visitors to the Museum "Casa Muresenilor," said Mr. Mihai Pascu, Vice-president of the County Council Brasov.
