The architectonic ensemble Udriste - Nasturel











La 35 de kilometri de Bucuresti, in judetul Giugiu, se afla singurul monument de arhitectura civila romaneasca de la inceputul secolului al XVII-lea construit in intregime din piatra de talie slefuita. Este vorba de Casa de piatra Udriste Nasturel, cladire de patrimoniu de gradul unu, construita intre anii 1640-1642 ca resedinta de vara de logofatul Udriste Nasturel si de fratele sau Cazan, dupa ce au revenit dintr-o calatorie in Italia.
Citam de pe site-ul Muzeului Taranului Roman cateva informatii despre importanta acestui monument: pe un platou din apropierea raului Arges, Casa de Piatra de la Herasti, ctitorie a boierului Udriste Nasturel, carturar vestit in epoca si cumnat al domnitorului Matei Basarab, ofera vizitatorilor sai bucuria cunoasterii singurului monument de arhitectura civila romaneasca de la inceputul secolului al XVII-lea construit in intregime, pe dinafara si pe dinauntru, din piatra de talie slefuita. Folosirea spatiului si formelor arhitecturale pe cele trei nivele (pivnita, parter, etaj), oranduirea si distribuirea saloanelor, holurilor si scarilor interioare, frumusetea pivnitelor si incaperilor mici boltite cilindric, impreuna cu tehnicile de lucru folosite si calitatea materialului dau o nota distincta de originalitate si farmec intregului ansamblu monumental pe care, Paul de Alep, secretarul patriarhului Macarie al Antohiei, ajuns la Heresti in septembrie 1657, il va asemui cu \"un palat fara egal in lume afara numai de Tara francilor atat de frumos ca imprastie toata grija sufletului intristat.

At Herasti is a beautiful palace known as Casa stone which was built Udriste Nasturel in the XVIIIth century. Medieval ensemble composed of Druganescu Mansion, built in 1715, restored and arranged as a museum of ethnography and folk art is in the village Floresti Stoenesti. Appearance is among the monuments of architecture Brancoveanu. 
Udriste - Nasturel architectural ensemble is composed of the church with the two patrons, "Holy Trinity" and "St. Archangels Michael and Gabriel", Stone House and Stolojan House. Both Stone House and the church were founded by  Nasturel family during the epoch of Matei Basarab, forming one of the most outstanding ensembles emerging from this period.

The church is a historical monument, built on the place of a small wooden church, by the princess Elina, the wife of Prince Matei Basarab, and with the contribution of his brothers, Cazan and Udriste Nasturel, on the land of their family, in 1644.

Built by brothers Nasturel and Cazan Udriste in 1642, the house is considered by Paul of Aleppo, in his travels, "a palace without equal in the world", having the appearance of Viennese palaces with Baroque elements .
Over time, the architectural ensemble had several owners: Constantin Nasturel Herescu, Prince Milos Obrenovici, family Atanasie Stolojan.

I think I would quickly become lonesome in this place, at least I would if I were alone in it. That said, I am sure the dog and the horse are good company, and I like what appears to be a small room with a computer by the window. That is the way I generally "set up shop" myself -- and, have since the Middle Ages. Hmmmm .... you think I am joking?

Your photography is masterful, Daliana, and I think the colour/tone (the minimal expression of colour) scheme is a wonderful and an appropriate way to illustrate these rooms and their furnishings/utensils. It reflects the age and gives a sense of seeing not only the present, but the past.

Very cool and neat ....

Cand te ganesti cate locuri uitate avem de readus in atentia oamenilor...Pacat ca nu se face mai nimic pentru conservarea lor....
