Bread Cultural Heritage


Bread is one of the greatest discoveries of human beings! There is no doubt that Bread is the most present food at table worldwide. But, Bread is not only food, it is a symbol of spirituality and reflection of cultural traditions. The secret of Bread lies in its true gastronomic, spiritual and cultural uniqueness. Religious Breads are present in every period of human life, from birth to death, end even after death. The story about  Breads is a story about the ethical and symbolic life of humans which has always been actual! Because of that this story should not be forgotten! 

Bread and Culture - World's Heritage is envisaged as a mosaic programme of research, information and educational projects, taking also into account the symbolical role Bread plays in our religious, cultures and everyday life. With those aims in mind we started to work on various long-term projects. 

The programme is officially a subsidiary  project of the "European Food Project" of ERICArts (European Research Institute for Comparative Cultural Policy and the Arts)
