The Manifestations of the Mediterranean Diet in Egyptian Intangible Cultural Heritage
by Mr. Mohamed Badry and Ms. Azza Abd El Maqsoud
Presentation of this paper had been done under the theme "Social Values Embodied in Diverse Patterns of Tangible and Intangible Heritage" within HU-BTU Fifth International Conference on Heritage Conservation and Site Management "Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Development: A Tourism Perspective". Abstract:
The Mediterranean diet was inscribed in 2013 on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list. It is considered knowledgably a lifestyle including a group of activities. Although this inscription was exclusively restricted in some European states, a researcher can estimate some of its manifestations within the forms of living heritage in Egypt. Paper will view some examples of cities where people indirectly apply the Mediterranean diet including various actions such as traditional food, crafts, social practices, and construction. Moreover, it will present recommendations which help to link culturally and economically between the Mediterranean diet-related activities and the Egyptian cultural identity. Respectively, this linkage will contribute raising an awareness of the Egyptian local community for the cultural significance of an intangible cultural heritage and pushing them to preserve, as an initial inventory body, their heritage and operationalize the factor of sustainability through transforming knowledge along the coming generations.
