One of the culture more attached to the land and in the same time the meaning of the word "Sheperd " develop in many sense. The protectors of our Land from the ancient time when the Godness were feed by sheperds

There was a time where sheperds were considered beside God. So God deside to comunicate his will by them. Our story start from human and arrive to humans. From the ancient books of bible, the Greek Mith and all the other book we start to recognise the Sheperd as a real guide and more, following a sheperd in transumance or in a normal life we understand our land , the effort that men does forgiving us the milk and the cheese in all the form and taste we desire. We feel the smell of the grass and like frightened sheeps we discover a new sensibilisation towards our land. We listen to the story of fights against the nature opposite to them and when the fights for human rights were so important to risk life. We will found our self around a fire to share simple food by our land and like gipsies we enjoy the real of the nature around us and the comprehension that "simple is better" Mario Migliara via govone 18 milano. mamigliara@gmail.com tel 3388491203

From the lost heritage to the exceptional collection of art. Remarkable destiny of significant collection in the middle Europe.

Count Ján XIV Pálffy was one of the richest people in Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and very important private collector of art as well. His collection was of a pan-European character, because his extraordinary collect effort makes it bigger than local conditions. Count Ján Pálffy owned many residences in Wien, Budapest, Paris, Bratislava and Kráľová pri Senci, which were used for depositing his collections. Some of them he had to rebuild. The most extensive neogothic rebuild was done in Bojnice. As models, he used French and Tyrolean castles as Amboise, Pierrefonds, Carcassonne, Perpignan, Merano, and Kreuzenstein. In his testament, he left his collection and buildings arranged as museums for the state. His relatives did not accept the testament and they sold all of the collections and buildings. Objects from Pallfy´s collections are situated not only in Slovak museums, but also in museums and galleries all over the Europe and USA.

Story of the library of Samuel Kollár from Čerenčany

In the Museum of Literature and Music in Banská Bystrica, there is a rare library of the evangelical vicar Samuel Kollár from Čerenčany. It contains more than 800 books that need to be restored to serve the communities in terms of education and experience. It was saved from total decay by a random finder, who transported it to the Faculty of Education in Banská Bystrica, where after some years, it continued its path to the Museum of Literature and Music unremarked. Here it was properly processed and registered and awaits its physical restoration as a rare European cultural heritage, to be available for the public.
