Itea's permanent residents number 101, according to the 2011 census.

Historical data

In the year 1833 with the Royal Decree of Otto "On the division of the Kingdom of Greece and its administration" published in the Official Gazette 12 / 6-12-1833, Greece was divided into ten Prefectures and 42 Provinces. The province of Kallidromi, recommended by the province of Karpenisi and the free areas of Agrafa, is a province of the prefecture of Aetolia and Acarnania. In the province of Kallidromi belongs the Itea of ​​Evritania, then Kretsista, its old name. In 1962 and in Government Gazette 210 / 23-12-1962 with the number 836 Royal Decree it was renamed Itea [5]. Until 2010 it belonged to the municipality of Aspropotamos (Kapodistrias Program). Since 2011, with the administrative changes and mergers of municipalities of the Kallikratis Plan, it became part of the Local Community of Raptopoulos, of the enlarged Municipality of Agrafa [6].

The church of the village is dedicated to Agia Paraskevi and celebrates on July 26, when a festival is held every year.
