gondolaAs previously published on our website, a controversial cable-car project that has been initiated by Belgrade’s governmental institutions, caused public reactions and strong protest of professionals from various fields. The cable-car should have been constructed at the most important cultural and historical location as well as one of the most important urban points in Belgrade – its fortress. The fortress itself is archeological site, and crucial place for understanding Belgrade, its phases and layers of development.

Thanks to our persistent and worthy colleagues from EUROPA NOSTRA SERBIA, this project has been stopped.

plaka

 

Craftsmen, engineers and artists, students, academics and professionals from Greece and the Balkans, meet at the old cobbled pathway that leads to the bridge of Plaka.

 

Craftsmen apprenticeship   –   Plaka Camp: 9/9 – 31/10    2 months of work and training on the traditional craft of the “kalderimi”

Stone Masonry Workshop   –   Plaka Workshop: 16 – 27 /10   12 days of practice and theory on stone building

KALDERIMI – COBBLED PATHWAY

This project consists in the restoration of the old cobbled pathway that leads to the Plaka Bridge. The works will take place during the autumn of 2019, while in the same time, the reconstruction of the bridge itself will be reaching completion. The cobbled pathway, which is 400m long and was partially reconditioned during the last year’s Stone Masonry Workshop, has suffered major alterations and severe damages during the past decades, and has been largely forgotten in favor of a recently constructed path, stretching across the bank of Arachthos River. If the above describe the troublesome nature of the present condition, they also imply our project’s deliverables: the old cobbled pathway, fully functional, in its authentic form.
