The 600-year anniversary of the Fall of the Patriarchal State of Aquilea as a ground of confrontation between this historic event and the Conquest of the Kingdom of Navarre in 1512. The two events do not only offer an opportunity to discover more about akin historical events, but also to think about their consequences on the local communities involved, the way “official” historiography tried to undermine the very nature of these events and to awaken the conscience through the rediscovery of symbols, facts and protagonists that marked that historical period. A journey through history and memory to discuss our present day.
