For twenty years, RAI Teche, the RAI structure of Italian Broadcast that includes all the RAI archives, has been committed to bringing to the attention of an ever-wider public the most representative components of the historical, social, and cultural evolution of our country in its collections.

The activity of recovering and enhancing RAI's audiovisual heritage is taking a fundamental step with the launch of a recovery project devoted specifically to Italian folklore. It is intended to highlight a significant documentary complex of research activity that marks a new era for the study of Italian folk traditions and thus becomes a compulsory passage for any possibility to understand the phenomenon.

From this first step was born the need to create a publication space—a website:—that would be a specific reference to a fundamental aspect of Italian cultural identity, and an effective tool for sharing and exchanging funds and resources with other audiovisual archives.
