The Slovenia Times

Exhibition on Slovenia's Memory of the World heritage

Oct 24 - Dec 3

The invaluable national heritage listed on the Slovenian national list of the UNESCO Memory of the World programme is being exhibited at the National Museum in what is a rare occasion.

The original documents displayed include a series of documents of the Counts of Celje (the Counts of Cilli), one of the most influential medieval noble dynasties of present-day Slovenia.

The exhibits also include PreŇ°erniana, a batch of documents and manuscripts related to Slovenia's greatest poet France PreŇ°eren (1800-1849), and the 1696 herbarium book by Janez Krstnik Flysser.

The 16th century Code of Piran De summa totius orbis by Pietro Coppo, the most valuable cartographic document kept in today's Slovenia, will also be on show, but only for the first three days of the exhibition.

Another item displayed is Camp Tarot, a deck of cards where architect and painter Boris Kobe (1905-1981) depicted scenes of suffering in a con concentration camp in 1945.

The exhibition is held at the museum's wing in the Museum Piazza in Metelkova.
