Tradition and innovation: Civis Burghers’ attire and mantles in Old City Hall
Tradition and innovation: Mantles and symbols of public offices in Debrecen – is the title of an exhibition opened in the Civis Treasury Gallery at the Old City Hall on November 12, 2018.
Besides the traditional attires, the robes designed for the city’s dignitaries are on display. In mayor Mr. László Papp’s view, there is need for innovation, but traditions need also to be kept in mind. Traditions can be resurrected in the 21st century, too – these pieces of attire also prove it. It is a particularly great challenge how we can keep the traditions of the city alive, so that we can also look back and not only forward and harmonize the past with the future.
