MediaMosa & Maastricht
Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, with complex and lively cultural overtones added over centuries by the Romans, Germans and French. This rich cultural palette is the secret behind the city’s attractiveness, drawing visitors to the historic city centre and a wealth of museums and festivals (http://www.vvv-maastricht.eu/city.html).
The river ‘Maas’ forms the heart of the city Maastricht. In Roman times this river was named ‘Mosa’ and the city was named ‘Mosa Trajectum’. For MediaMosa, ‘Mosa’ is the reference to the river Mosa, and then the ‘meander’ of the river referring to the pulse of the video signal.
