Roman Valbandon @ Fazana, ISTRA

Sunday, 19.7.2009. 21:00Fažana

Roman Valbandon @ Fazana, ISTRAAs many as seven Roman patrician families had their magnificent villas built in the area of Fažana, together with small production plants. At one of these sites, in Valbandon bay, every July we go back into the past, all the way to classical Roman times!
Today, workshops are organized to demonstrate the technique of making Roman mosaics and replicas of amphoras from the famous Laecanius workshop.

A fashion show presenting jewelry from the Roman era and gastronomic offer of a “Roman menu” in a torch-lit setting try to recreate the atmosphere of bygone times in this area.

Valbadon Bay - Fazana
Already ancient Romans, known for their hedonism, were well aware of the beauty of this area, so that as many as seven patrician families decided to build their magnificent villae rusticae here.

Apart from many creative workshops where you can learn about the ancient skills of making mosaics and amphorae, and fashion show of Roman jewellery, you can also witness real Roman Bacchanalia with a rich offer of dishes prepared according to ancient recipes that are just as attractive today as they were in Roman times!
