Welcome to Turku! It is my pleasure to welcome all the participants of the European Heritage Congress organised by Europa Nostra to Turku in the springtime. Europa Nostra carries out valuable work,and we are proud thatTurku,as the oldest city in Finland, has the opportunity to host this congress.This is a significant honour for both Turku and Finland, which this year celebrates its centenary. At this time, I would like to thank all of you who have had a hand in bringing this congress to Turku.

G R E E T I N G S

Surrounded by an archipelago,Turku has often acted as the gateway to new ideas and influences arriving in our country. This is why our culture today is a rich combination of new and old, east and west as well as both intangible and built cultural heritage. The city of Turku wishes to cherish and conserve its 800-year-old culture as evidenced by the Paavo Nurmi Legacy project, which this year won a European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Award. This year is Finland’s centenary, and Turku also participates in the celebrations with traditions in mind, a bold attitude, and with our eyes on the future.

H E R I T A G E

One of the main events of the centenary is the largest folk culture event in Europe, Europeade, which will now be held in Finland for the first time, here in Turku. In July, the event will attract over 6,000 dancers, singers and musicians to our city.Turku is also the only reformation city in Finland and the capital of the Church of Finland. Kirkkopäivät (Church Days) is the main event of the Reformation anniversary year, and will take place at the end of May. It is an urban festival intended for all, which offers a look into the Church of the 21st century. Also, in July, the world’s largest sailing ships will sail to the city for the fifth time. On this occasion, the city will be full of young sailors from all over the world.

E U R O P E A N

I myself was born and raised in Turku, and this city means everything to me. In Turku, lovers of culture will find plenty of interesting events, such as concerts, theatre performances, art exhibitions and festivals. For this reason, I hope that Turku will leave a lasting impression on you during your visit, and that you will have the chance to come back some day.

Aleksi Randell Mayor of Turku 4

Villa Roma

P R O G R A M M E

Ruissalo Island in Turku was a fashionable summer destination for distinguished guests in the 19th century due to its noteworthy villas, some of the first of their kind in the Nordic countries. The island still attracts visitors for being a popular leisure area since the beginning of the 20th century. The Finnish artist Kaj Stenvall will give a tour of his home, the Villa Roma designed by Georg Th. Chiewitz in 1850, which has been the inspiration for several outstanding Nordic villas.

Both towns feature well-preserved and architecturally unified wooden historic centres which are still dynamic parts of the cities today with shops, cafĂŠs and artist workshops. The first buildings in Rauma date back to the 17th century, consisting today of over 600 privately owned wooden buildings on a 29-hectare area. Naantali was built around a Bridgettine Convent and has been a lively spa town since the 19th century.The official summer residence of the President of the Finnish Republic is located in Naantali. 16

The Paimio Sanatorium

E U R O P E A N

This tour will present the most important and world-famous works of three masters of Finnish Modernism: Alvar Aalto (1898-1976), Erik Bryggman (1891-1955) and Pekka Pitkänen (b. 1927). Aalto and Bryggman brought Functionalism to Finland and Pitkänen was Bryggman’s apprentice in the 1950s. The Paimio Sanatorium (1929-1933) was Alvar Aalto’s international breakthrough and the start of his organic approach to Functionalism. Bright colours and views of the outside world are used to cheer up the patients. Structural solutions were very ambitious. In Bryggman’s Resurrection Chapel (1938-1941) and Pitkänen’s experimental concrete architecture in the Chapel of the Holy Cross (1963-1967), nature and natural light play a crucial role. Lunch will be served at the Tuorla Manor - a 19th century neoclassical manor complex, the extension and renovation of which was designed by Erik Bryggman. 17
