Heritage Kit and Caravan. Preparations.

May 2024

In these first months of work for the heritage education project for this year, work is going on under the surface to produce the materials with which trainers and children will explore the Enescu House in Mihăileni,Botoșani county; Country House Viscri 18, Viscri,Brasov county; Golescu Villa, Câmpulung Muscel Town, Argeș county; Neamțu Mansion, Olari village,Olt county; the Church of Urși,Vâlcea county and another surprise house. Ideas and ways to spark children’s imagination emerge from team discussions.

We wonder, for example, what people, sounds or stories have clothed the heritage buildings chosen for the six kits for children? Aristocratic families, bankers and important politicians of their times passed by Golescu Villa in Câmpulung Muscel, the Neamțu Mansion in Olari or the P.P. Carp Mansion in Țibănești. We shall find out how the Saxons arrived in Viscri, how the Church of Urși is still inhabited by angelic figures and which musical personalities have been with George Enescu at the Memorial House in Mihăileni.

At the same time, we ask ourselves about our roots and try to build our own family tree.

Our friends are our extended family and we try to use the monthly meetings to shape and define as best and creatively as possible the community of work and play that will form around the kits and the Heritage Caravan, starting in August this summer.

Our Caravan defines and weaves together the network of historic homes and communities in which the Foundation works. In the caravan, some of the core team and a team of experienced volunteers set out for a total of about 20 days in the fall to five destinations of exploration and play spread out in places steeped in history.

Each host home and garden opens to an audience comprising mainly of children for two days with exhibits, specific workshops, prize contests, culinary tastings, and movie night.


“Heritage Kit and Caravan – Houses and Communities Working Together” is a project realized by Pro Patrimonio Foundation, supported by the Romanian Order of Architects Stamp Tax and co-financed by AFCN, with the support of UiPath Foundation.
