Europe is dead?
Of course not!
Far from thinking that Europe is boring, we, on the contrary, assume that Europe is the land of all surprises. Indeed, the smallest continent of the world concentrates on its territory the greatest amount of cultural expressions and linguistic inventions. Unfortunately, those hidden treasures barely circulate across frontiers and remain unknown to the majority of European inhabitants. This is all the more a pity if we consider that it is actually this cultural creativity which constitutes the spirit of Europe.
Europe is not dead aims precisely at exploring this European heritage. This website intends to present different national contents in a broader European outlook. By providing a new transnational perspective on the common cultural expressions of Europeans’ every-day life, Europe is not dead‘s ambition is to bridge the gap between cultural diversity and European unity.
Have you ever listened to Portugal’s most famous nursery rhyme?
Do you know which street is the most expensive in Italian Monopoly? Have you already read Greece’s favorite Fairy Tale? Or listened to the most popular Christmas Carol in Norway? Do you know what is the most untranslatable word in Dutch? Europe is not dead is all about those peculiar cultural manifestations from which it is possible to learn a lot about our neighbour’s culture.
The structure of the website is now organized in four categories, each one divided in three subcategories. The four main categories are based on the Latin expression “Audio, Video, Disco” which means “I hear, I see, I learn” to which I recently added “Gusto” for “I taste”, as there is no reason we wouldn’t also enjoy some hedonistic food pleasure!
