It is significantly important to learn the way of life and cultural heritage of Aromanian community as a Balkan community. Aromanian people are these who left an indelible mark on the culture of the Balkan peoples. One of the most important promoters of Romanian and Aromanian culture is Nicolae Constantin Batzaria. Nicolae put his works of this atypical community snatched from oblivion. He was born in the former Ottoman Empire in Aromanian family and raised in the spirit of Aromanian culture, educated in three countries. After schooling in Romania returns to Turkey, where he started his political engagement in revolutionary movement known as the Young Turks, he left them when the group became very radical. His love toward Aromanian people, their customs and culture is more strongly reinforced during training in Romania. He was chief inspector of the Romanian educational institutions in the Ottoman provinces of Kosovo and Salonika. His desire to contribute to the preservation of Aromanian culture led him in the paths of literature. His works will remain as a pillar of support for all future reminders on this community.
