On March 25th, 2018 the Associazione Culturale FREMO-Calabria Nino Caldarella was established in Rende. The purpose of this non-profit association is the study of real railways and their history, the practice and the popularization of railway modeling, with particular regard to the Calabrian railways, also creating or participating in events and exhibitions. The group is part of the "Circle of Friends European Fermodellisti" (FREMO). With the opening of an operative office it will be possible to appreciate continuously the work of our members, the first commitment was participation in the "Miniature Railways at the Museum of Pietrarsa" organized by the FS Foundation held in Pietrarsa from 27 April to 1 May.
