The International Centre of the Roerichs took part in the Europa Nostra annual European Heritage Congress 2011

Mayor of Amsterdam addressing to the participants of Europa Nostra Congress - 2011

The annual European Congress Europa Nostra was held in Amsterdam from 8 to 11 June, 2011. On the eve of the event the names of 27 winners of the European Union Prise for Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Awards were announced.

The Prises were delivered at the European Heritage Awards Ceremony 2011 at the world-famous Amsterdam's historic concert hall, the «Concertgebouw». The ceremony was opened by Europa Nostra President Maestro Placido Domingo. Mrs Andrulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, also participated in the Congress.

Among the 27 best projects six were awarded with Grand Prix. Each of the winners received a plaque or a trophy. The six Grand Prix winners also received cash prises of 10000 Euro each.

Last year the International Centre of the Roerichs became a member of this authoritative international organisation. At the Congress our organisation was represented by Prof. Alexey V. Postnikov, the ICR President. He praised the organization of this international forum and the high level of its representation.

«All the represented projects are very interesting,» prof. A. Postnikov said, «but I was especially impressed by three of them. One of them is the Ancient Messene in Greece – a large scale project for preservation and renovation of Hellenic, an important religious and administrative center. The second one is the Hackfall Woodland Garden in the United Kingdom. It had been lost for nearly a century in uncontrolled or damaging overgrowth and felling. Now Hackfall enjoyed its restoration that followed the imaginative vision of its 17th century founder. About the third one I would like to tell you more. It is the careful restoration of preindustrial buildings in the Spanish village of Ademuz. This historical place recall the former local way of life, and reflect the collective memories and activities of this rural area in its true context and landscape. The project guided by culturologist Camilla Mileto. She managed to involve in the project a lot of students and experts. Her work reminded me about dedicated service of Ms Lyudmila V. Shaposhnikova, Director General of the Museum by name of Nicholas Roerich. She has been creating our Museum for many years. Such people give us hope for the harmonious development of the mankind».
