Subiect: When we first took on the collaboration proposal sent by Christina Matiaki, it seemed to be just like any other proposal we usually receive at the Department of Public Relations, Marketing and Cultural Projects. Teaching Iconography at Kozani, a course organized by the Bishopric of Kozani, Christina wanted to host an exhibition in the Suţu Palace with works painted by students studying icon painting, originating from three
countries: Greece, Italy and Romania. As our collaboration progressed, the originality of the project, with an emphasis on Byzantine tradition in various cultures, and its valuable educational character became increasingly clearer.
The aim of the proposal was to continue the collaboration initiated in the previous year on the subject of the representation of the Virgin Mary throughout the centuries with a similar project in 2017 concerning the various instances used when depicting Christ.
This year’s edition was put together with the following partners: Region of Western Macedonia, the iconographic seminary of the Diocese of Kozani, the `Aristotle` Cultural Association, the iconography seminary of the Diocese of Kastoria `Non Stop`, the `Saint Stylianos` Children’s Shelter in Kozani, the Naturalist Association of Mesopotamia in Kastoria and the `Associazione Archeosofica` in Florence, the `Iustinian Patriarhul` Faculty of Orthodox Theology, the `Saint Filofteia` Theological Seminary and The
Bucharest Municipality Museum. The 2017 international event began in April with exhibitions and workshops held in Grevena and Kozani, travelling in May to Bucharest following the same structure, ending on a high note in Florence. The Bucharest section of the event involved an exhibition hosted in Suţu Palace, the headquarters of the Bucharest Municipality Museum, with six large canvases depicting six of the 12 Great Feasts and icons representing Jesus Christ made by students from all three countries.
