Today Gülcan is the boss of the FCI. She was born in Göreme, but grew up and lived in the big city of Kayseri for about 25 yeas. After meeting Andus both of them decided to live together a kind of 'modern' multicultural village life mainly based around tourism and modern anthropology.

The "Kapadokya Akademi Ltd. Sti" was later on established as the frame of our business activities. We rented out the FCI between 2014-2017 to tenant Abdullah Demirci, but since 2018 Gülcan is taking over control again. Some renovation needs to be done and systems reestablished.


German born Andus Emge moved again (after his field-studies in 1984-1987) to Cappadocia in 1998. After restoring the old cave-house(which is now the site of the "Fairy Chimney Inn", Andus established the Cappadocia Academy as an independent forum and network of regional experts and the famous guesthouse "Fairy chimney Inn".

Together with other professionals and artists from Turkey and all over the world, Andus also established the platform_c network focusing on different pilot projects and studies concerning this unique UNESCO world heritage site. He also organized various other cultural events as well as he continued writing and cultural research.

This period in Cappadocia lasted until 2013, when Andus finally moved on with other projects. He is not involved in the daily FCI business anymore but keeps regular contacts and returns frequently.
