Interview with Angela Paveliuc-Olariu - video teaser

Today we went to Iasi for a memorable meeting with Mrs. Angela Paveliuc-Olariu, famous ethnographer and director of the Wood Art Museum between 1964-1968.

For more than two hours, Mrs. Paveliuc-Olariu told us about the period spent in Câmpulung, in an interview full of delicious details (soon, on our new site). Her name is linked to the transition of the museum from one with a somewhat generalist profile (ethnography, natural sciences, history) to one with the specifics it still has today: the one dedicated to the culture and civilization of wood.

Between 1978 and 1995, he worked as director of the Ethnographic Museum of Moldova in Iasi. "It was a very beautiful autumn day, and someone came from the People's Council and told me that I had to go to the Regional Education and Culture in Suceava. I left, and there the inspector from the Region and a gentleman who had been in the control team were waiting for me. They asked me if I had gone for a walk in Bucovina, I had not been. I went with them to Câmpulung Moldovenesc. There was a wonderful sequence. The car pulled up in front of an older building, and a rather massive door opened. A gentleman with an arm of white gladiolus appeared, I still remember. He said, "Welcome, Madam Director." I was perplexed ", confesses Angela Paveliuc-Olariu.
