Stefania lives in a village famous for its traditions, in Gorj County, Romania. Almost 150 years ago, a few minutes away from Stefania’s house, one of the greatest sculptors of the 20th-century was born. Constantin Brâncuși was influenced by the local woodcarving tradition and later became a pioneer of modernism, being also known as the patriarch of modern sculpture. Today Stefania is part of a traditional dance group in the village. She inherited this old georgeous outfit from her grandmother. Besides being passionate about the folk culture, she also loves technology, preparing to study robotics. As Brâncuși, she admires the past, while also focusing on the future. Yes, traditions and progress can go hand in hand. And I think this is the key for a better and healthier world.
