Images and voices from the past come back to life
Collection of old super8 films connected to the history of the town, the landscape, the mountain, religious and lay celebrations, personal accounts. The films are copied on a DVD, catalogues, a videoteque is created about the town history, "summary" products on various issues are created. Training programme on shooting and editing techniques; planning and taking videos for interviewing old town inhabitants.
The objective of the project is to implement sectors "Population and culture " of the "Alpine Convention", "in order to respect, preserve and promote the cultural and social independence of the indigenous population" (art. 2 of the Convention). The intent is to recover the historic memory of the recent past (specifically the 1960s and 1970s with respect to films) and less recent past (the years in the aftermath of WW2 and the 1950s by means of interviews with old inhabitants) by means of the creation of a databank (images, photographs, interviews) which can describe the life of a rural community in the last century. Besides creating a "databank" available to the population, there will be created one or more specific "summary products" (documentaries) by editing rough materials in the hands of the citizens. A training programme will make it possible for some people interested in learning shooting and editing techniques to continue the work even after the end of the project.
1.setting up a working group;
The other three towns which are part of the "Ecomuseum" and in particular the Association towards the Lagorai Ecomuseum, that will practically follow the project; volunteers' associations in Telve and other countries; there will be a collaboration of the Museo storico di Trento (Trento History Museum) that will provide technical support. The collaboration of citizens is paramount in providing the material they already have.
