The premiere of the 'Citizens' took place at the city festival of Brasov. On the initiative of Cristian Macedonschi, City Councillor for Culture, Irene Nemeth designed twelve characters which represent the culture and traditions as well as the modern life of Brasov. Amongst the characters was also a celebrity: Peter Maffay, one of Germany's biggest rockstars who was given honorary citizenship of his native town signed ‘his’ Citizen with enthusiasm.
The life-sized figures were displayed on the main square in Brasov's city center. They mixed with the crowd and were eagerly photographed by the inhabitants and visitors to Brasov.

The very first "Draculendar"!
