Education on collecting memories

The archive contains the interviews collected by university and high school students in the territory of Vercelli during the manifestation “Peoples’ celebration 2014”, which was a moment of encounter and sharing among different ethnicities and cultures. The interviews investigate the themes of gastronomic knowledge, the shock of meeting other culinary styles and the rituals that go with the meals of the young participants. The research was developed within the European project Open Discovery Space.
