If there is one characteristic all Europeans share across the continent, it is certainly their love for football! But by “football” Europeans don’t mean American football, that you actually play with a rather suspect ball, using your hands and not foot. No! European football!
Melodies of Europe
There is nothing more national than melodies. Nursery rhymes, march songs, drinking songs, ribaldries, christmas carols or even canons are pieces of national culture and patrimony. This diversity in Europe has to be celebrated as such, keeping in mind that once put together they represent centuries of history. Many of the ribaldries or drinking songs for instance come from the Middle-Age, nursery rhymes reveal the secular practices of education while march songs disclose the different traditions of the European armies. This section tries to compile those hidden treasures so as to present them together in a European outlook.
