The National Culture Days in Risetta take place between January 12-20!

January 15, designated as National Culture Day, marks the birth date of the Romanian nationalist poet Mihai Imenescu (1850-1889).

On November 16, 2010, the House of Representatives adopted a bill, according to which Mihai Eminscu’s birthday became National Culture Day, a normative law that received 175 votes in favour, one against and two abstentions.

The project was started by 50 deputies and senators and Mircea Diacono, who signed the initiative. The text of the explanatory note to the initiators is as follows: National.

The decree promulgating the law declaring January 15 – National Culture Day was signed on December 6, 2010, and Law No. Posted 238 of December 7, 2010 in OJ 831 of December 13, 2010.

In other European countries, National Culture Day also honors prominent people in culture who represent each country.

Thus, in Spain, Culture Day is celebrated on the date of the death of Miguel de Cervantes, and in Portugal, on the birthday of the poet Luis de Camويسes.

The Moldovan authorities also decided to make Mihai Emenescu’s birthday a national cultural day.

“With Eminescu, the last great Romantic poet appears in European literature, preserving his existence and making the characteristic outlines of the Romantic artists’ drama. Constantly striving for a higher moral and artistic life plan, lamenting the search for truth and constantly refusing to compromise, Eminescu was in constant conflict with the world of his time. Because of the incompatibility, the sincerity of the facts of life and the elevation of thought, multiplied by the thirst for absolute knowledge ”, it is correct to say with Mihai Emenescu – the “complete man of Roman culture” Roman poetic literature was born under the auspices of his genius and the form of the national language, which he found in the poet the most beautiful achievement Yet, it will be the starting point for all the future development of clothing Roman thought. Because he helped us all come to the “Luceafr” pact, the tragic but Olympic understanding that “I never thought I’d learn to die”, claims Nichita Stănescu.

The name Mihai Emenscu is associated with Mount Banat and through the country’s first theater, the playwright from Oravica, which bears his name.

This theater hosted the troupe of Mikhail Pascal, which also included Mihai Emenscu as a blower, a troupe that gave two shows on September 1 and 2, 1868.

The first patriarch of Romania, Myron Cristia, left the seat of the Bishop of Karansbic and did his first academic work dedicated to the great poet Mihai Eminescu, in 1895, and then Eli Cristia, a young doctoral student who graduated in modern philosophy and language philosophy in Budapest with a thesis titled: “Eminescu Life and Work . A study of the latest creations of Romanian literature.” In its contents it was called for the first time “Luceafărul of Romanian Poetry”.

High-profile events are being prepared in Risetta on the occasion of the Day of Romanian Culture, on the initiative of the President of the German Democratic Forum in the province, researcher Erwin Josef Schigla, a great lover of luciforol for Romanian poetry

In fact, publishers from Resita, Erwin Josef Ţigla and Gheorghe Jurma, were selected in the book journalism category, and the two men from culture were awarded the UZPR Cup for the book album “Mihai Eminescu Monuments”, published under the auspices of the German Association for Culture and Education.

The last poem by Mihai Emenscu – “Stars in the Sky” (June 15, 1889)

The lyrics were found in the pocket of the hospital gown he was wearing when he found his end…

stars in the sky

over the seas

I’m burning in the distance

until I die.

after the sign

masts rinse

The wide ones are trembling

wooden ships:

some cities

View extensions

and incomprehensible


Good luck and God bless you

Spread your wings

Moments chased him

stuck in place.

until I die

Go away angel

to my sad complaint

full of love.

Is it not a sin?

to refuse

Fastest moment

What do you give us?

In addition to “The Stars in the Sky”, the poem “Life” is found in the same pocket, both of which were published in “The Fountain of Planusia” on August 1, 1889.

As I mentioned earlier, Mihai Emenscu is one of the few messengers of God who prays for us in Romanian!

Happy birthday to Romanian culture!
