The "Center for the Study and Propagation of Myths and Tales" is a public, non-profit and non-governmental organisation. Its founders are people of the arts and literatures (Social Anthropologists, Folklore, Theatrologists, Educators, Actors, Narrators, Artists, Journalists, etc.). Its members reside and work around the world.
The "Center" was born in 2006 because of the need for an institution, both artistic and scientific, to design, organise and implement cultural events and educational activities, highlighting the global folk tradition. To date it has been working with educational and cultural organisations. It aims at rescuing, highlighting and spreading myths, legends, fairy tales, through art shows and educational programs. It aims to develop people's interest in the wealth and importance of intangible cultural heritage and oral tradition, to emphasize the need for their protection, to cultivate and impart ideals and values that contribute to the peaceful coexistence of peoples.
