Rezumat / Summary: Inspired by the title chosen by Mihail Sadoveanu for his inaugural discourse at Vasile Alecsandri’s Mausoleum from June 3rd, 1928, the current contribution highlights the sinuous and fragmented history of the various efforts to bring to fruition an edifice set to cherish the memory of the Romanian poet and diplomat, which began in 1916 and ultimately came to completion in 1928. Concomitantly, another aim of the paper is to bring back into the spotlight both the form and the content of Mihail Sadoveanuʼs gracious eulogy of the life and work of Vasile Alecsandri.
