Abstract

Stefano Bianchini is the Coordinator of a national research team on «Voices of the Mediterranean: The Twin Cities of Ancona and Split» as a partner of the international project on «Oral history and cultural practice in historic Mediterranean cities» supported by the European Commission within the framework of the Euromed Heritage program II (contractor: London Metropolitan University). The project: A partnership initiative between London Metropolitan University and 13 cities (Alexandria, Bologna, Bethlehem, Beirut, Crete, Granada, Istanbul, Marseilles, Nicosia North, Nicosia South, Palma de Mallorca, Palma de Gran Canaria, Valletta) within the Mediterranean Basin has started in 2003. Med-Voices examines the cultural heritage of these cities and is a way into a oral and social database (see www.med-voices.org) holding unique examples of intangible cultural heritage: memories of people and places, and documents such as photographs and maps from historic quarters across the region. The main aim: The principal aim of the Mediterranean Voices project is to reverse the customary emphasis given to monumental heritage and to promote an awareness of the intangible cultural heritage of Mediterranean urban landscapes amongst as wide an audience as possible: academics, policy-makers, civil society organisations, educational institutions, and the general public The focus of the Italian team: Through its focus on a variety of neighbourhood-based interactions and experiences which are played out in and through story-telling, personal recollections of historic events, everyday social interactions and cultural practices, this project illuminates the diverse, yet often fragile, fabric of memories and relationships which help to shape the meaning and character of Mediterranean urban quarters. In this perspective, the Italian team based at the University of Bologna, Forlì campus, has identified the city of Ancona, with its twin relations with Split, as the main focus for a research on the Mediterranean dimension of the Adriatic Sea and particularly its connection with East Mediterranean civilizations. The outcome of this research - implemented in 2003 and 2004 - will be an exhibition to be held in Ancona in 2005.
