As of Tuesday, Rome will host two major exhibitions entitled "The Serbian Culture - a Way through Centuries" and "The Cyrillic" at the Museum of the Roman Civilization.
The exhibitions, which will be declared open by Serbian Ambassador to Rome Ana Hrustanovic, are part of the manifestation and cultural events which are being held in the Italian capital within the Month of the Serbian Culture in Rome with the aim of presenting to the Italian public Serbia's visual and performing arts, music, language and literature.
"The Serbian Culture - a Way through Centuries" and "The Cyrillic" authored by Ruzica Cvetic and Bojan Tubin, that is Dragana Nikolic and Jelena Hadzi-Nikolic, are based on the stories and experiences of Italian correspondents who were living in Serbia.
On the very same day, several Italian journalists and publicists will speak about their experiences from Serbia at a roundtable. Some of the participants will be RAI presenter Ennio Remondino, the Rome-based daily La Repubblica's Renato Caprile, Roberto Spagnoli from the radio Radicale, La Stampa's special correspondent Giuseppe Zaccaria.
On that occasion, visitors will be able to attend a lecture on the reforms in the domains of law and religion that were carried out during the rule of Constantine I.
The Month of the Serbian Culture is a part of the project "The Arts and Culture of Eastern Europe in Rome", which has been promoted by Rome's Secretariat for Culture and historical centre in cooperation with the city councillor for Europe Tatiana Kuzyk.
The Month of the Serbian Culture started at the end of December with the exhibitions of the works by five Serbian artists, who are living and working in the Italian capital.
Until the end of January, the audience in Rome will have an opportunity to attend the concert by guitarist Tibor Tepic and string quartet TAJJ from Novi Sad, as well as a theatrical performance inspired by Ljiljana Habjanovic's novel "Game of the Angels", and a series of plays by renowned playwright Dusan Kovacevic.
The manifestation will be closed on January 27, with the celebration of St. Sava's Day. On this occasion, the band VED from Vranje will stage a concert, performing traditional and folk music, while opera diva Dragana Moles will sing the Hymn to St. Sava.
