The humans’ orientation of the Municipality of Rethymno is reflected in every expression and action of the culture. In this year's revival of the Renaissance past of Rethymno, the humans are starring: People who identified their personal journey with the evolution of the place that were born or visited, over the centuries, personalities that were organically linked to the land that hosted them and shared with the people the feelings that revive the soul and promote life at high levels.
The Truth, Love, Melancholy, emerge through their stories, as regenerative elements of our everyday life, as the driving forces of changing our view of the world.
A combination of quality events, with different starting point but with common destination, will enrich our cultural life for 15 days, redeeming our experiences with travelers who have won their visions, creators who have enriched the spiritual heritage of the city, with everyday people who heroically managed pain and lack of hope.
This year's Renaissance Festival invites us to become an integral part of a lively, endless artistic "portrait". Our own portrait.
