Prime Minister Mihai Tudose on Monday sent a message on National Culture’s Day stating that throughout centuries, “culture has brought people together and has shaped national identity.”
“We celebrate today National Culture’s Day, an auspicious moment to reflect on the enduring contribution culture has to the state’s and to each and every on of us evolution. Throughout centuries, culture has brought people together and has shaped national identity. It has helped us tear down the barriers of prejudices and, during hardship, it has brought out spirituality. Culture empowers citizens with feelings of pride and dignity and grants the state with an aura of uniqueness,” premier Tudose wrote on Facebook.
At the same time, the head of the Executive specified that Culture’s Day, by no means fortuitously, coincides with the birth date of Romania’s greatest poet, Mihai Eminescu.
“As many as 168 years from his birth, Eminescu endures as an example of how to harmonise tradition with modernity, while at the same time being the utmost expression of Romanian culture. We have the duty to pass on culture to future generations, the culture borrowed from all those who have strengthened it. The Centenary Year represents the best occasion to show culture the due respect and to carry on the Romanian conscience and identity,” PM Tudose further wrote.
