To quote from the text of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, “the ‘intangible cultural heritage’ means the practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills – as well as the instruments, objects, artefacts and cultural spaces associated therewith – that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage.”
How are tangible and intangible cultural heritages interconnected? Why is the conservation of intangible heritage an integral part of the conservation of monuments and sites?
To address these issues, the ICOMOS Documentation Centre offers a selection of documents and books available in its collections. This selection does not pretend to constitute a comprehensive bibliography of the scientific literature on the conservation of the intangible heritage.
