The 2013 edition of the ARTmania Festival Sibiu will take place in between 5th and 11th of August, having a dynamic program, full of innovative and unconventional activities. A well-known supporter of the alternative culture, the ARTmania platform launches this year a conceptual space meant to refresh the life of the medieval citadel, to support the cultural dialogue and promote the national values in an international context: ARTmania Smart Zone.
