Association for the Repatriation of the Roman Mosaic of Panxón
The mission of this Association is to raise sufficient funds (58.000 EUR) to repatriate, from New York, the Roman Mosaic of Panxón and give it (as a donation or loan) to the institution in the province of Pontevedra that best guarantees the public exhibition of the piece, its conservation in museum conditions, and the dissemination of the Romanization of Val Miñor.
As of June 30, 2022, we have collected 11,500 Euros. With the generous contribution of 40,000 Euros committed by the City Council of Nigrán (approved in plenary session on October 25 and subject to the signing of a collaboration agreement), ONLY 6,500 Euros would be ENOUGH to reach the goal.
The execution of a cooperation agreement with the Nigrán Council is imperative -and urgent– in order to: 1) Receive the grant approved by the council, and 2) Acquire, repatriate and commit to donate the mosaic to the Nigrán Council, to be publicly displayed.
The reserve agreement with the current owners of the mosaic expires on 29 October 2022. On that day , the mosaic could be sold to third parties and we will lose it forever. PARTICIPATE!
