Safeguarding and enhancing Europe’s intangible cultural heritage

Safeguarding and enhancing Europe's intangible cultural heritage

Autore: Sen. Paolo Corsini e altri

Estratto: Globalisation and the information society are radically changing the way we produce, consume, communicate with others and live our daily lives.
