(Cultural and Folk History Society of Apano Mirabello)

The need to preserve the rich local culture, traditions and customs led to the establishment of a cultural institution that would henceforth undertake to preserve this cultural heritage. Thus, a group of active citizens decided to do this by founding the Cultural and Folk History Society of Apano Mirabello (ΠΛΕΑΜ – PLEAM) on August 3, 1978 according to the statute.

Article 2 of the initial PLEAM statute defines its mission statement as “the conservation and preservation of local, traditional culture” and Article 3, describes the means by which to achieve this as “the creation of archival and museum collections, which will include any object of folk art, relevant to the customs, beliefs, professional and agricultural activities of the inhabitants, et cetera (…) for which the society will provide housing”.
