Neonlitic1 / Workshop #3

Cucuteni Culture - as a source of artistic inspiration

Workshop #3

From a cultural and artistic point of view, the "neoNlitic" project aims to take over ancient artistic elements and to capitalize on the common cultural heritage and aesthetics of the Neolithic civilizations whose vestiges were discovered in Romania. In particular, the group of artists involved in the project will focus on two nationally and regionally representative cultures: the Cucuteni culture and the Hamangia culture.

If 2 weeks ago we discussed the Hamangia culture, now we turn our attention to the Cucuteni culture, discovered for the first time in the Iasi area, in the Cucuteni village, hence the name of this spectacular culture from the Neolithic period.
