The “George Enescu University of Arts” in Iasi (Romania) celebrates it’s 155-year existence. On October 1st 1860, Alexandru Ioan Cuza, the first ruler of the United Principalities, signs the decree for the foundation of the first higher education institution in Romania – The Music und Declamation School in Iasi. Only 26 days later, with the signing of the decree for the foundation of the University, the School for Sculpture und Painting is born. Ever since it was founded, the university has created multiple opportunities for artistic creation. The university plays an active role in protecting, promoting and preserving the Romanian artistic creation.
