MIRCEA DINESCU WILL BE AN EXHIBITOR AT THE OLTENIA TOURISM FAIR
The Cetate Cultural Port is recognized for its gastronomy, inspired by old aristocratic recipes , together with ‘Dinescu’s Wine’, produced at the Galicea Mare Winery will hold a special place at the First edition of the Oltenia Tourism Fair, between 18th and 20th of March in Craiova.
Increasingly popular as a tourist destination, the Port - where this year, cruise ships going to and coming from Vienna, will anchor, bringing tourists from the US, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zeeland – will keep housing cultural events, organized under the patronage of the ‘Mircea Dinescu’ Poetry Association - SoNoRo Interferences, an a capella music workshop, which will predate the SoNoRo Festival, translation camps (together with the Goethe Institute), sculpture camps (who already made up the future Angel Park – Mircea Dinescu’s polemical response to the Dracula Park project), theatre shows in partnership with renowned festivals (the Craiova Shakespeare Festival, the Sibiu Theatre Festival), residencies for writers and artists, symposiums and cultural meetings with regional and international partners and, in the end of every summer: The Wine and Culinary Art Tasters’ Divan’.
We salute the presence of Master Mircea Dinescu’s presence at the Oltenia Tourism Fair.
Here are the thoughts that the fair invitation has brought to Mircea Dinescu’s mind:
‘Back to Iasnaia Poliana, after he had participated in the Russian-Turkish war, as a young officer, Lev Tolstoi notes a touching chapter in his diary: “Last night I dreamt of Calafat…”. Because of this utterance I bought on the Danube’s Bank, in Calafat, the historical house of a Greek wine merchant, situated right on the hillock from which King Charles the Ist uttered, when our cannons began firing towards Vidin, a famous sentence: “This is the music that I like!”
If you, also, remember the fairytale time when God made a stop in Maglavit – which is close to the Cetate Port, you have to admit that the Oltenia brand, supported by Tolstoi, Charles Ist and God, is the fact of miracles’.
