Organized by:

Visit the small village near Făgăraș, for an afternoon and an evening of delight for the mind and the senses.

The first stop is in the center of the village, at Lazăr's smithy, inaugurated in 2015. Here, the "Șona Noastra" village association awaits you for a special guided tour, demonstrations of Blacksmithing, and an exhibition of children's paintings from the village, ending with a cake feast and even a contest.

Then, visit Florin Ghenade's photography exhibition, entitled "Old Trees. Let it be dark, yes, let there be light!", from the Blue House, at no 234. Florin Ghenade photographs trees between 200 and 600 years old in a nocturnal setting, and through direct collaborations with ecologists, seek understanding of the photographed subject. Moreover, beyond its place and role in nature, Ghenade researches trees through the prism of the community around them, the layers of memory and time, the ecological and cultural identity of the rural space that they contain as documents.
