Winners of the contest The Place I love

The winners of Banca Intesa’s project of reconstruction of Serbia’s cultural and historical heritage, entitled The Place I Love, are the following: the former National Library in Kosančićev venac in Belgrade, Belgrade’s Gate in Petrovaradin and the Town Walls in Novi Pazar. In 2012, Banca Intesa is going to invest at least 30 million dinars in the reconstruction of these three localities, which stand out as places with special sentimental value for the citizens of Serbia.

Banca Intesa launched the CSR project The Place I Love in May 2011, with the support of the Ministry of Culture, non-profit organisation Europa Nostra Serbia and the Republic Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments, in order to contribute to the protection of cultural and historical heritage of Serbia. Aiming to create a unique base of places dear to citizens, reconstruct three localities which win the most votes in the associated contest, as well as to raise the awareness of the general public about the importance of preservation of the country’s cultural and historical heritage, The Place I Love project is being implemented in three stages: stage of nomination, stage of voting and stage of reconstruction.
