Roman Emona

Emona - 10.jpg

Emona (Latin: Colonia Iulia Aemona) was a Roman civil town, built on the site of an old indigenous settlement on the territory of the present Ljubljana. The Roman Emona sites in Ljubljana can be seen in several parts west of the old town centre. It is also the setting of a popular novel The Stranger in Emona [Tujec v Emoni] (1978) by Mira Mihelič.

Emona's ground plan was 430 metres times 540 metres and was surrounded by city walls, which were 6 to 8 metres high and 2.5 metres thick. The Emona city wall was built between 14 and 15 AD, the southern city wall was redesigned in 1930s by the architect Jože Plečnik.

Emona had a population of 3,000 to 5,000 people, mostly farmers, landlords and merchants, including a small number of government officials and war veterans. Its streets were paved and its houses were built of stone with the hypocaust underfloor heating system, and connected to a public sewage system. The remains of a baptistery with a pool, mosaics, and part of portico may be seen at Erjavčeva 18, next to Cankarjev dom Culture and Congress Centre.

EU funding

Culture! poster.jpg

The poster and the interactive infographics represent the data related to the EU funding for culture, film and audiovisual media raised by Slovene organisations in the period 2002–2012.

In 11 years 153 organisations have been involved in 542 projects with the European dimension.

The infographic presents all the projects by art disciplines and all successful producers/organisations according to their status (public/private) and their role in the project (project initiators/partners).

The infographic can be complemented with a list of Slovene organisations funded by the Culture and MEDIA Programmes 2002-2012). Each article about a recipient of either EU Culture or MEDIA grant now includes also a list of EU projects.

The data mining project has been conceived by the three offices: Cultural Contact Point Slovenia based at SCCA-Ljubljana, Media Desk Slovenia, and Art and Science Laboratory with the aim of presenting the data as well as making information available for further analyses and comparative researches.
