ART AND ARTISTS IN CASCANTE: 16TH-17TH CENTURIES
Closing of the cycle
At the closing ceremony of the course, the Mayor of Cascante, Mr. Antonio Irujo and the members of the association Vicus expressed their gratitude to the Chair de Patrimonio y Arte Navarro for their know-how, to the speakers for their "ars bene docendi", and to all the participants for their attendance, since all the sessions filled the capacity of the conference room, exceeding one hundred people in each of the conferences.
Santiago Rueda closed the course stating: "This cycle has brought us closer to the knowledge of the Building of our churches, to the saga of the Serrano family of retablists and to the terrible loss of a great work of art such as the main altarpiece of the Church of the Assumption. We look forward to discovering new aspects of our rich artistic heritage on future occasions at the hand of the Chair de Patrimonio y Arte Navarro".
The course was closed by Mr. Santiago Rueda, from the association Cultural Vicus de Cascante, the mayor of the town, Mr. Antonio Irujo and Mr. Ricardo Fernández Gracia, director of the Chair of Heritage and Navarrese Art of the University of Navarra.
