Casa Filipescu-Cesianu, the newest museum of Bucharest
Victory Avenue in Bucharest, the best promenade boulevard of the capital, is inviting us to rediscover an architectural jewel, a historic monument full of stories: Casa Filipescu Cesianu, the former residence of the late attorney Constantin Cesianu.
Situated next to Victory Square, at the intersection between Victory Avenue and Sevastopol Street, Casa Filipescu – Cesianu represents the restoration of an older residence, from the period 1846-1850. It is one of the few aristocratic residences of the Belle Epoque Bucharest, still true to its original architectural style.
Starting with this week, the Museum of Casa Filipescu Ceasianu, part of the Municipality Museum of Bucharest, will be open to the public, FREE OF CHARGE, from Wednesdays to Sundays, between 10 and 18.
For quite a long time, after 1990, Casa Filipescu Cesianu was the storage area for the Municipality Museum of Bucharest. Soon, the museum will organize here an exhibition about the history of the family, the childhood and the life of Bucharest in the last 300 years. At present, the exhibition of photographs and documents “Bucharest: a NOVECENTO portrait, the story of a century of 555 anniversaries”, is housed by the newly opened museum.
“The city lives through many souls. We have a city which presents itself as a city with a message, the details of which are modified almost every generation. The city communicates through the voice of all ages, having several voices, synchronized with attitudes, acts and future projections.” Dr. Adrian Majuru.
