The Alive Human Treasures Gala


The Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with the National Village Museum "Dimitrie Gusti" and the Romanian Academy organized in November 9th 2015, the Alive Human Treasures Gala, according to the Alive Human Treasures Program ? an UNESCO initiative regarding safeguarding, preservation and transmission of the material cultural heritage.
Through this program, we managed to emphasize the activity of the artists who laboriously dedicated their lives, with tradition and passion, to learning "from father to son" the secrets of the trades they have promoted both at national and international level, contributing to Romania?s image around the world.

People from Brasov who got awards

In the county of Brasov, Alive Human Treasures have been declared to be Dumitru Sofonea ? a skinner from Dragus village, Barko Etelca ? an award for egg painting and Ioan Pumnea ? a choreographer. Within the Gala organized in Bucharest, a post-morten diploma was also awarded to Nicolae Purcarea, a cutting and wood sculpture artist from Scheii Brasovului, who died in September 2015. After the awards ceremony from the National Village Museum "Dimitrie Gusti", the Alive Human Treasures went to Cotroceni Palace, where President Klaus Iohannis awarded them the Medal for Cultural Achievements class 3.

70 years of activity

"This year I will have been working in this field for 70 years. I am glad I am alive and that I am being rewarded for my entire career. The President of Romania, Mister Klaus Iohannis welcomed us in Cotroceni Palace, and he handed me the medal for ?Cultural Achievements class 3?. Romania?s national anthem was sung, we had a glass of champagne and a group photo. Everything was absolutely amazing." declared choreographer Ioan Pumnea, known by everybody as "Nea` Nica", obviously excited.

Fecioreasca din Ardeal, in UNESCO

Ioan Pumnea has also said that the folk dances group from Ticusul Nou, Brasov county, made up and coordinated by himself, was included in UNESCO world heritage. This group of male folk dances is also known as "Fecioreasca din Ardeal". The announcement was officially made and the awarding celebration shall be organized in the spring of 2016, in Namibia.
