ORAL MEMORY is a tool that allows us to know our past, helping us to understand the present. Oral testimonies emphasize the human aspect of history, benefiting the questions and answers we elaborate about our yesterday.
Today, when social experience can be totally disconnected from the concrete territory and, in the face of social changes that threaten more than ever, the Internet presents itself as an ideal place to preserve together an intangible cultural heritage otherwise doomed to disappear.
Therefore, we invite you to narrate your memories linked to piñatas. Better yet, ask your grandparents, parents, friends, anyone who can tell us about their use in the past, with special attention to the words of our elders.
