"History never surrenders..."
from "The Last Relicuin", a novel by Hargus Montgomery
Historia Vivens (from the Latin: "historia", "history", and "vivens", "living") is a web portal devoted to the extraordinary cultural, historical, folkloric and natural Heritage of Europe. We invite you to join us into a charming journey across the inspiring world of History and Traditions, and see how they become alive through a variety of historical festivals, cultural celebrations and folk customs thanks to the Living History events and museums, which take the visitors into a breath-taking and live-in time travel experience. While reliving the everyday atmosphere and life from different time periods and countries, we all get reconnected with our cultural and spiritual roots.
The Historia Vivens project seeks to provide high quality and easily accessible information through dedicated web resources and photography with the final aim to contribute to preserve and promote the European historical, archaeological, cultural and natural Heritage, paying particular attention to the Living History and Reenactment practices, as well as to Experimental Archaeology and Heritage Tourism themed itineraries, and, last but not least, the quite unique wealth of the Folklore traditions from the different European countries.
Thank you for your interest! We hope you will enjoy the contents and wish you a pleasant web-journey!
