Artist and ex-miner Ion Barbu is working on preserving the cultural heritage of ?Petrila’s ?coal mine. In accordance with EU agreements, the authorities are committed to demolishing it. This would bring an abrupt end to a history with which the mining community still feels a deep affinity. Barbu refuses to back down, doing all he can to keep the memories of the mine and the identity of his hometown alive.
