2017 – 2020
The “Mosaic- Conímbriga and Sicó” Project is a Creative Tourism project based on the valuable Roman Mosaic Heritage present in the geographical axis constituted by the Ruins of the Roman city of Conímbriga, the Roman Villa of Rabaçal and the Monumental Complex of Santiago da Guarda, adding three municipalities – Condeixa-a-Nova, Penela and Ansião.
Comprised of a multidisciplinary scientific team with recognized merits and being headquartered in the “Monographic Museum of Conímbriga – National Museum” – an important center for archaeological research, conservation and restoration of Roman Mosaic – this project promotes cultural and creative activities within the museums, interpretative centers and archaeological sites included in its program of action. The visitors are invited to be involved in alternative experiences of sharing knowledge about the Roman Mosaic Heritage and affirming this as an expression of creativity brought into the present and reinterpretate it now and in the future.
The Roman Mosaic Heritage present in the territory is revealed as an important artistic and cultural testimony of different moments of Romanization – rich in materials, techniques, decorative motifs, images and narratives – all inserted in a Cultural Landscape to be discovered.
