I SUPPORT FOLK CULTURE
There are lot of people who want to listen to more music, hear new words and cultures. Perhaps, one of the best ways to protect these expressions and promote them is simply sharing them with others. The web radio of the Italian Network of Folk Culture (Non-profit organization) was founded with the goal of creating a space for the story of rituals, traditions, places and the patterns of sociability/community in which they develop.
This section of the community will allow members to upload and download videos, texts, photographs, music, interviews with the "masters" of folk culture, documents on festivals and traditions, food and craft, games and ways of working, research, and pieces of musical studies. The archive will consist of all materials loaded by members and of some private cultural materials donated to the Italian Network of Folk Culture, then loaded and become available for everyone. The first to begin building this archive was Tullio De Mauro, linguist and professor emeritus of international renown, who donated to the Net part of his archive of linguistics.

The University has the objective of promoting meetings, workshops and performances to raise awareness and spread out the best practices of folk culture. Real lessons about tradition, held by those who are its "masters": expressions of a territory and a community, a social and economic history. For these figures, this is a way to communicate with future generations, in order to ferry the tradition to forms of innovation, constituting an inter-generational cultural covenant and a shared path.
This is an international reward based on the supervision of a scientific committee. It is aimed to the development of festivals, rituals, performances and actions that express the intrinsic and inseparable value of each area's history.
