The creation of the European Folkore Union - I.G.F. in 1947 upon France and Italy's initiative was perhaps the first step for the establishment of a large European family. Officially acknowledged and authorised by the French Government ever since its creation, the European Union - I.G.F. got extended, thus becoming nowadays European and extra-European. Its assignments obviously increased and the new I.G.F Board's management set up at the General Assembly held in October 2011 aimed at refreshing and covering a new road in its important mission of furthering and capitalising the universal folklore values. I am persuaded that jointly with the newly elected team we will fully contribute to the furtherance of the artistic phenomenon, of friendship, peace and harmony worldwide.
