The Municipality of Nea Ionia was established immediately after the catastrophe in Minor Asia in 1923, in a non residential area, without any infrastructures, in order to house the population who were relocated in Greece, due to the forced population exchange provided for by the Treaty of Lausanne. This new residential area on the outskirts of Athens had all the particular genealogical characteristics of its inhabitants: the homogeneous composition of the population created a community that preserved cultural codes and values, social bonds and practices.
