THE PLACE THAT I LOVE

04.10.2014

Europa Nostra Serbia, as the voice of civic sector in heritage protection is the partner of The Place that I Love project.

The Place that I Love is the project of social responsibility which is realized for the first time in 2011 by Banca Intesa, in partnership with Europa Nostra Serbia and State institute for protection of cultural monuments.

The goal of the projects is education on importance of cultural, historical and natural heritage, involvement of citizens in heritage valorisation and protection, as well as restoration and rehabilitation of those sites selected by the majority of citizens and funded by Intesa Bank.

Recognizing a role of citizens, the project aims to help in preservation of places and of special importance to the citizens of Serbia, by inviting all interested people to participate, give their voice and suggest places which are important to them and to their communities. As such, this project gives us an equal role in active safeguarding of our culture and history. Through the phases of nomination, public voting and final phase of restoration of at least 3 places, citizens are actively participating while 5 professionals are selecting final places to be restored.

 

During the first phase of the project 3 sites selected for the restoration are:

1. National library site at Kosančić venac, Belgrade
2. City walls, Novi Pazar
3. Belgrade gate, Petrovaradin fortress, Novi Sad
