Vlachs – Forgotten People of the Balkans
The project will refer to the forgotten minority in the territory of the Western Balkans, ie: Vlachs or Aroman minority, which grew in the 19th century across Europe. They are almost forgotten although they were carriers of economic modernization in Serbia and other Balkan countries in the mid-19 century. Their knowledge of international trade, language, accounts, tools, and of books and literacy, marked the cultural life of many European countries. Although they didn't have their own country, they were present throughout the Balkans and Europe. The context of the project lays in this migration flows of the Vlachs and their influence in different European countries. Planned activities: • International conference • Exhibition about the Vlachs • Preparing publication and collection of scientific papers.
We are looking primarily for partners from Bulgaria and Greece, but also partners from other countries that are interested in this topic.
