Fellowship for the cultural heritage of Molise

Fellowship posted by Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (24/05/2014 04.16)


During the medieval and modern age the Molise wasn’t a static area, if area doesn’t mean only a geographical space. This space is characterized by mountains and level ground and its landscape in the past has been dominated by seasonal transhumance. In special for this reasons the social system was based on the rural economy that was based by more kinds of social mobility (singles or groups persons).

The research wants to analize the symbolic cultural heritage of Molise (trough the ecclesiastical institutions, the places of worship, the devotions, the toponymy and the onomastics). The Molise will be studied like a space of cultural transfer and like a bourder of Eastern Mediterranean Sea. In this way we can give back to the collective memory the awareness of the cultural density that often was eclipsed. We think that the valorization (with exhibits and museums) is important to understand and to fruition of cultural heritage in Molise.
