“The Corinth Historical-Folklore Museum, founded in 1976 at the initiative of the Corinthian Alkmeni Petropoulou-Gartagani, operates as a Legal Entity under Private Law, ending under the supervision of the Ministries of Culture and Finance. His national and public interests focus on finding, rescuing, preserving, preserving, and displaying a permanent exhibition of the evidence of history and especially of the folk traditions of modern Hellenism. Its founding is the crown of his founder's uninterrupted and long-lasting social contribution, which has shown great interest in collecting works of modern Greek folk culture. Alkmeni Garthagani-Petropoulou knew and loved deeply the Greek folk culture. She envisioned the creation of a Museum of Modern Hellenism in her hometown, Corinth, which had not gained anything in the 160 years of her independent life. Consciously, therefore, without departing from its original orientation, with amazing instinct, it devoted itself to collecting works of modern Greek life and art, solely on the basis of their national, historical and cultural value. Its purpose was to illuminate the religious, historical, social and cultural life of the Greeks with this material, with objects, many of which are difficult today, dating back to the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Since the opening of the Museum, many Corinthians have been quick to deposit objects of historical and folklore interest in it. With these movements of our fellow citizens, the founder's main goal is to be realized daily, which is to awaken the historical collective memory, to sense the debt of participating in social offerings and thereby to highlight local specialties and to preserve and promote the general public. of this knowledge and testimony. The Museum was built on the basis of the architectural plans of the Academician Solonos Kidoniatis and the costs were fully covered by the founder, who was financially and morally assisted by the Ministry of Culture. In the struggle of Alkmeni Petropoulou for the construction of the building and the placement of collections within it a number of experts as well as bond institutions, appreciating her great effort, supported her work. The Benaki Museums, National History, Greek Folk Art and the Academy of Folklore of the Academy of Athens, have substantially assisted in the documentation of museum objects and in the design and setting up of the permanent exhibition.”
