Our exploration of Romania’s history through vestiges and objects of outstanding symbolism and beauty brings forth an artifact that symbolizes a major turning point in the history of the Banat region and its capital, Timișoara: The Royal Free City Diploma, granted in 1781 by the Habsburg emperor Joseph II – a source of both political identity and economic development.

Text and video presentation by historian and curator Ciprian Glăvan. Film concept by Ana Tudor and Adrian Tudor. A series developed in partnership with The National Museum of Banat in Timișoara and Timiș County Council.
