ART ENCOUNTERS | Appearance & Essence | 3-31 OCTOBER 2015 TIMISOARA | ARAD
Unirii Square is the oldest square in Timişoara and one of Art Encounters’ hubs. Throughout history the square was called Hauptplatz (Main Square), Domplatz (Dome Square) or Losonczy Square, after the name of the committee Ştefan Losoncyz, killed in 1552 when the fortress was conquered by the Ottoman Empire. Today’s name was given in 1919 because this was the place where the Romanian troops entered Timişoara, unifying Banat region with Big Romania.
