Ardud is a place where the past meets the present under the aegis of continuity and dynamics. With a history attested to more than eight centuries, something has always happened here, something relevant from a social, cultural, anthropological point of view. The medieval festival organized in the beautiful Fortress of Ardud, the artistic creation camps or the historical symposia are just a few current landmarks. Nomen Est Omen participates annually in such events in the mentioned city, each time with the joy of meeting people aware of the European dimension of the area. The flag of the European Union at the entrance to the fortress is only an external indicator of the vision of those present here, from organizers to artists, musicians or historians.
