Medieval Slovakia in Rome

AN EXHIBITION called Medieval Wall Paintings in the Heart of Europe recently opened in Flaconieri Palace in Rome, Italy, showing relics collected from Slovak and Hungarian churches.

Thirty panels with photographs of 14th and 15th century frescos from churches in the Slovak-Hungarian border region will be on display. Most of the works come from the reign of King Sigmund of Luxembourg.

The exhibition is one of the results of a decade-long cooperation between Slovak and Hungarian Conservation Institutes. This year, the two institutions plan to work on a project that includes a cultural tourist path from Ostrihom to Leles.
