The Avdhela Project - Aromanian Cultural Library
The Predania Association, through the Avdhela Project, aims at identifying, publishing and offering scientific and artistic works belonging to the Aromanian cultural patrimony and to other cultures which are related to it. These cultural assets, particularly the public ones, will become accessible and free to researchers and to all those interested in it.
The Avdhela Project is a non-profit, non-governmental one, accomplished by the activity of volunteers (authors, editorial group) and of institutions that are generally concerned with the research, evolution and preservation of the Aromanian culture.
The project will also include editorial activities on paper (books, magazines, brochures), multimedia production (audio CD, CD-ROM, films, etc); it will initiate and organize meetings, symposiums, summer schools, cultural programs.
The project is mainly focused on Aromanians, aiming at offering proper means of preserving the language, of knowing its origin, historic, social, spiritual evolution, etc. It also addresses itself to the Balkanian nations, among which the Aromanian communities live, so that it can be more deeply known, so that their culture, language, ancient traditions can be appreciated, respected and approached with dignity by those around them.
