Negotinska Krajina Wine Cellars nominated for ILUCIDARE Special Prize

Serbia

The conservation and restoration of the Negotinska Krajina wine cellars from Serbia has been shortlisted for this year’s  ILUCIDARE prize. ILUCIDARE is  part of the EU Award for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Award.

 

The nine shortlisted projects were selected by experts from eight countries from around Europe. The Negotinska Krajina Wine Cellars were nominated in the category of international cooperation for cultural heritage preservation.

“Specifically, this project is a prime example of youth engagement, of young people coming to Serbia from around Europe to work on restoration of these nearly forgotten wine cellars, while socialising and exchanging knowledge and skills with the local population. I am looking forward to September when the winners will be announced. Until then, we are rooting for our team,” said Dr Katarina Živanović, expert in cultural heritage management and member ofthe Europa Nostra Serbia management board.

 

The winners of the ILUCIDARE awards will be announced in autumn 2021 at the European Heritage Awards ceremony in Venice. Special ILUCIDARE prizes are supported through the EU’s research and innovation programme,Horizon 2020, and the Creative Europe programme, which supports EU Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards.
