This is also occasioned by the launch of the European Year of Heritage and will be held for two weeks, 15-31 January. We have proposed a series of conferences that will take place at the Șuțu Palace, the Union of Architects in Romania and the Mihai Eminescu Library. Specialists, architects, art historians, restorers will analyze the influences of the architecture from the second half of the 19th century. At the same time, we will digitize documents from the National Archives of Romania, very fragile and precious documents that tell us the story of some of the Bucharest buildings".
