Denkmalgeschützte Stuckdecke zu verschenken (Willhaben.at)

Eine Nachricht von Initiative Denkmalschutz

Liebe Freunde der Initiative Denkmalschutz,

gerade entdeckt: Willhaben-Inserat „Denkmalgeschützte Stuckdecke“ zu verschenken !!!

Hier Link zum Inserat bzw. als Screenshot anbei:

https://www.willhaben.at/iad/kaufen-und-verkaufen/d/denkmalgeschuetzte-stuckdecke-zu-vergeben-251919414/

Ich vermute, dass es sich hierbei um die Stuckdecke vom Stadtplatz 11 in Klosterneuburg handelt (Indizien: Kontaktadresse gleich daneben:

Stadtplatz 13 sowie Eintrag in der Denkmalliste als denkmalgeschützt nur die „Stuckdecke“, siehe:

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_der_denkmalgesch%C3%BCtzten_Objekte_in_Klosterneuburg).

Ich habe den Grundbuchauszug und den BDA-Unterschutzstellungsbescheid ausgehoben. Der Bescheid datiert aus dem Jahr 1968 und war eine Not-Unterschutzstellung („Gefahr im Verzug“). Der Bescheid ist sehr schlecht zu lesen, wenn man sich konzentriert jedoch alle Wörter lesbar.

Wobei die Unterschutzstellung erfolgte nicht 2016, wie hier in der Wikipedia-Denkmalliste angegeben, sondern bereits 1968 (siehe BDA-Bescheid anbei). Bis 1978 war eine grundbücherliche Eintragung meines Wissens nach nicht verpflichtend bei Unterschutzstellung, sodass offenbar erst 2016 der Bescheid im Grundbuch eingetragen wurde.

Also wer Interesse hat, sich die Stuckdecke schenken zu lassen möge Kontakt aufnehmen,

Le Dimore del Quartetto

The European Historic Houses Association has a great opportunity for your members! We have concluded a partnership with the Italian association Le Dimore del Quartetto and we are looking for private owners of historic houses willing to engage with the initiative.

Le Dimore del Quartetto supports excellent young string quartets and promotes living cultural heritage in historic houses, thus relaunching their role as patrons of the arts.

Concretely, private owners willing to join the network host musicians for 7 days for free in exchange for concerts (that can be either private or open to the public), by providing accommodation for 4 people, a rehearsal room and a venue for concerts.

In exchange, the Quartets perform concerts in the house, which creates value for the house, fosters gatherings and enables private owners to showcase to an interested audience the other activities which are carried out in the house (guided tours, exhibitions….). It is also a great opportunity to unite again historic houses and the living arts.

Set up in partnership with the ADSI (our Italian Association), the project currently gathers 79 houses and organized 80 concerts and residencies in 2017; and is gaining momentum in Italy with increased press coverage.

We are looking to expand this initiative to other European countries, and we are thus calling on you to circulate the information to your members.

Interested private owners should express their interest by December 8 by sending an email or calling the Secretariat of the Association.

Email: d.dupeux@europeanhistorichouses.eu

Phone: +32 (0) 2 400 77 00

You will also find below to this email the brochure of Le Dimore del Quartetto with further information on the initiative.

SAVE the House of Georges Bizet in Bougival, near Paris!

Today, as France, Europe and the entire world commemorate the birthday of Europe’twere great composer, Georges Bizet, Europa Nostra and our President, Maestro Plácido Domingo, wish to invite you to support the crowd-funding campaign to save the House of Bizet in Bougival, near Paris in France.

As you read in the Summer edition of our Newsletter, this campaign was launched by the European Music Centre and the City of Bougival on 21 June 2017 in Paris. The launch coincided with the 20th anniversary of the European Music Day.

Given the symbolic European value of this initiative, Europa Nostra and our President exceptionally decided to give it our high patronage. Watch the video message which our President recorded for the launch of this crowd-funding campaign.

After four months, we are pleased to inform you that so far, 950 people have already supported the project with a total amount of almost €125,000 raised.

Additional contributions are needed and more than welcome!

BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR GEORGES BIZET

A personal message from Maestro Plácido Domingo, President of Europa Nostra

Dear Friends of Europa Nostra,

On 25th October, we celebrate the 179th birthday of one of Europe’s greatest composers, Georges Bizet.

Throughout his short life of just 36 years, Bizet created true marvels such as his masterpiece, Carmen, the world’s most performed opera. I myself had the privilege of singing this sublime piece on over 200 occasions, in addition to having directed it close to 50 times over the course of my career.

Now it’s up to us – the friends of Europe’s cultural heritage – to offer Georges Bizet a worthy birthday gift: let us help the City of Bougival and the European Music Centre to buy and restore Bizet’s beloved house in the charming little town of Bougival on the banks of the Seine near Paris, where he composed Carmen and sadly, passed away at such a young age.

Let it finally be the Home of Bizet and his Carmen! We owe it to him, after all that he has given us…

I am counting on each of you. Let us be numerous in our contributions. Any amount, however small, is more than welcome!

Thank you!

Plácido Domingo
President of Europa Nostra

Sing for Relief

TO THE ATTENTION OF ALL MEMBERS OF THE EUROPA NOSTRA COUNCIL AND BOARD

Dear Colleagues & Friends, 

We wish to share with you the solidarity initiative taken by our President, Maestro Plácido Domingo, to mobilise the widest possible support for people in need in Mexico and Puerto Rico, two countries which have recently endured severe devastations and in which our President has many close family and friends.

Please take few minutes to watch and listen to the moving video message which our President has posted yesterday on his social media.

https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/team/sing-for-relief

In this video message, Plácido Domingo urges us all to contribute an amount, however small, in support of people in need in those two countries. Our President has also pledged to match the amount raised through this initiative – up to the amount of 50.000 USD -through the Plácido and Marta Domingo Foundation. 

Please also spread this message as widely as possible through your own contacts and also via social media.

Europa Nostra has already done this via our own twitter account.

On behalf of our President, we thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

With my very best regards,

 

Sneška
