Carnval project

The overall goal of the project EPHEMERAL HERITAGE OF THE EUROPEAN CARNIVAL RITUALS (CARNVAL) – Agreement n. 2014-3297/001-001; this project has been funded with support from the European Commission – is to promote some of the most European Carnival rituals and the cultural and creative sectors associated with them. These events are an important part of Europe’s intangible cultural heritage. Our project, therefore, aims to bring greater attention to these events and create links among them – and ultimately to reinforce the idea of a common European cultural area and enhance the feeling of a common European identity.
