Roumelight gets inspired by the Byzantine Empire
On Monday March 7th, a scientific soiree named "Relations between Russia & Mount Athos" accompanied by a painting exhibition entitled "Greek Cultural Monuments" was presented in the foyer of the hall "Alexander". Interesting speeches from acclaimed professors, a wonderful choir concert, and a number of paintings composed the recipe of a unique night.
It was an honor to roumelight to participate with a new lighting construction, inspired from the Byzantine Empire. This consists of a plexiglass block with three colorful layers - gold, black and scarlet as met in the symbols of the Byzantine Empire. A hidden led tape illuminates the layers offering a three dimensional form.
The event was organized by the Cultural Center of Central Macedonia's Region, the "Russkiy Mir" Foundation's Russian Centre of Thessaloniki, the Association of European Idea's Friends (S.F.E.I) and the Digital Annex of St. Petersburg's State Russian Museum, under the auspices of Ministry of Macedonia & Thrace, the Metropolis of Thessaloniki and the Consulate of Russian Federation.
