With over 50 years of tradition, “Romulus Ladea” Visual Highschool has been the only pre-university educational centre (school) in all Transylvania.

Regardless of the historical times passing by, sincer 1949 this highschool has been keeping alive the faith in the eternal value of beauty, as a possible salvation of the world and of the creative ego. We are proud if our teachers who have exhibited in our country and abroad, too: as Nicolae Maier, we are also proud of our students who have became doctors, writers, architects or philosophers.

The city of Cluj-Napoca owes Romul Ladea, the spiritual master of our highschool, first class artist,remarkable monuments such as : “Lucian Blaga”,”Scoala Ardeleana”.

Ladea studied in Bucharest (he was Paciurea’s student), in Paris, in Brancusi’s workshop. He was a teacher at Fine Arts School in Cluj and at “Ion Andreescu” Institute.

In his honour and memory, every year in May, our highschool organizes a festival Romul Ladea Festival which has his name and it is accompanied by a scientific communication session with an interdisciplinary character. This festival, together with the creative experiment opened to all the children from Cluj and its surroundings, and too all our country, finalises the methodical preocupations of the teachers, regarding the improvement of the artistic language.
