Panelists and authors Gabriela Adamesteanu, Ionana Parvulsescu et Catalin Pavel show the public round the Museum of European History, with special attention to their favourite objects in the collections.
Gabriela Adamesteanu (1942) writes novels, short stories and essays as well as working as a translator and journalist. Her work draws heavily on biographical elements as she alternates between past and present and evokes her experiences in communist Romania. The French translations of her work are published by Gallimard in the prestigious Du monde entier collection.
Ioana Parvulescu (1960) is one of Romania's best-selling authors. Her novel Life Begins on Friday won the EU Prize for Literature. Her novels unfold in the 19th century, among members of the interbellum generation and under the communist regime in Romania.
Catalin Pavel (1976) is not just a writer but also a doctor of archaeology. He has written four novels, including a parodying biography of the Flemish composer of polyphonic music Josquin des Prez.
