The House of Culture

Marasesti, judetul Vrancea

AddressRepublicii, 99


When raising Marasesti to the rank of city, starting with 1920, and the creation of Great Romania, the premises of a strong culture were created. The city began to be visited more and more frequently by tourists, by important personalities and representatives of the Royal Court. A remarkable spiritual life was expected, driven by intellectuals who came to town, consisting of teachers, priests, officials from city hall and at other institutions and newly established companies. There were organized grand celebrations, events of honouring the celebrations and commemorative days, activities to promote general culture, morality and education, local history, etc., with the help of the two priests and teachers from three schools.

Since 1920, library which worn the name of the hero of 1917, General Eremia Grigorescu, was founded in the hall of School for Girls, librarian being the teacher Valcu. In the same place in 1931, the priest Scarlat Dumitriu founded the House of Culture, with the same name of the general mentioned above. On the ruins of an old inn, which after a while became the stable of the communal bull (Negropontes’ property), and after that, in 1997, the Chamber of Local Council, the Town House of Culture was founded.

A big choir carried on its activity with a repertoire of Romanian folklore, led for a long time by professor and war veteran, Simion Valerian, a student theater, a dance ensemble recognized throughout the country (supported by the former factory “Chimica"), and many other cultural and artistic activities. Here, in 1977, the oldest literary club in Vrancea, called "Poesis", was founded, led by Constantin Ghinita, known today as "Dor de Eminescu".
In the year 1978 the House of Science and Technology for Youth was founded, now called The House of Culture "Emanoil Petrut", which officially functioned from 1984 and was subordinated until 1989 to the former UTC (The Young Communists Union). In 1990 it was taken over by the BTT and in 1992 the heritage became the property of Marasesti City Hall. By decision of the Local Council in 2001 on the initiative of the House of Culture, the institution was named after the great theater and cinema actor, Emanoil Petrut.
