The Ministry of Culture of the Government of Spain grants to the Chair of Education and Intangible Heritage of the Pyrenees a project on Safeguarding and the Pyrenees Fire Festivities
The Chair of Education and Intangible Heritage of the Pyrenees has designed and developed the project “Design and implementation of a Safeguard Model for the Summer Solstice Fire Festivities in the Pyrenees”, granted by the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Spain. Where, among other tasks, 20 projects from the UNESCO register of good safeguarding practices have been analyzed, relative to the period 2008-2017, identifying the measures developed.
They have been categorized and used as a model for the case of the Fire Festivals in the Pyrenees. The management carried out in nearby traditions, declared UNESCO heritage, such as the castellers or the PATUM has also been studied. All the Fallaire valleys have also been visited, especially those located in Spanish territory. 8 meetings have been held with the implicated ones of the festival to find out their needs and the specific operation of their tradition.
