Short presentation: I am a cultural anthropologist and in the last years I was working within the project “E.CH.I. Italo-Swiss Ethnographies for the Valorization of Intangible Heritage” (http://www.intangiblesearch.eu/ http://www.echi-interreg.eu/pages/il-progetto-e.ch.i). This project experience inspired me to do a PhD at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, where I am doing my research on heritage discourses in the Dolomites.
