MEMORIAMEDIA aims to study, inventory and disseminate manifestations of intangible cultural heritage. These include oral expressions, performative practices, celebrations, traditional craftsmanship and knowledge concerning nature and the universe. The results of the project are organised as a national inventory and published on www.memoriamedia.net, where they are freely available for consultation and sharing.
MEMORIAMEDIA began in 2006, in the midst of a broad national and international discussion regarding the issues of intangible cultural heritage. This book crosses such theoretical, methodological and technical questions with the characterisation of MEMORIAMEDIA.
