Murten Classics 2015

Project

Beyond our borders, princes, kings and emperors for centuries contributed culture and recruited the greatest artists, sculptors, painters, writers and musicians. They gave them food so that they embellished their castles and palaces. With art the court was held, music and theater were not only entertainment, not just "nice to have", but also "status symbol". Secular culture had become a major political counterweight to church power. The courts in Europe as well as the churches left behind an immense cultural heritage.


Stories and legends of emperors, kings and princes, historical novels, costume movies or tabloids have always attracted the interest and curiosity of the public.
The nobleness pledged itself to a careful and quality-conscious support of great art and culture, in such dimension, which none democratic state could afford today anymore. In this sense, as posthumous art and music enthusiasts, we are much obliged to nobleness.
