Latest work with IntechOpen by Daniela Turcanu-Carutiu

This book presents research efforts in the field of heritage. According to the principle “Open Minds-Open Science”, the approach of the researchers helps us to define, establish and affirm heritage in the cultural, social and political dimension of today’s world based on what we have achieved and be specific to the realities of the 21st century. Cultural heritage is made up of many big and small things. It is preserved through books, artifacts, objects, images, photographs, art and oral tradition. Sometimes we can touch and see what a culture is, other times it is intangible. From this point of view, this book, Heritage, is transdisciplinary, and contains the most diverse topics related to culture, art, nature, science, diplomacy and cultural policy.
