About The Event
The History of Romania in One Object, one of our permanent online series, resumes with a fresh display of artifacts and objects with symbolic value presented by the experts and custodians of two of Romania's historical collections, Moldavia's History Museum in Iași and The National Museum of Transylvanian History in Cluj-Napoca. The first story takes us back to a mysterious civilization of the Copper Age that reveals its imagination and skill through stunning painted pottery. The superb Cucuteni Painted Vessel and the world that gave birth to it are introduced by historian and archaeologist Loredana Solcan of the History Museum of Moldavia in Iași.
Loredana Solcan is a curator at Moldavia's History Museum in Iași, part of the "Moldova" National Museum Complex. In addition to taking part in the organization of various exhibitions, she seeks to cultivate children's interest in archaeology and history and bring them closer to the world of museums by organizing interactive thematic workshops that give them the opportunity to directly experience aspects of people's lives in the past. Loredana Solcan is also interested in the study of the human relationship with the environment in the Neolithic and conducts studies on people’s interaction with plants or animals in the prehistoric Cucuteni Culture.
Our online series THE HISTORY OF ROMANIA IN ONE OBJECT, developed in partnership with some of the most important history museums in the country, evokes decisive epochs in Romania's past starting from artifacts or vestiges with powerful symbolic, representative value.
