The research project will contribute to:
- point out an ethno botanical and folkloric history of useful plant (food, medicine, textiles, dying, handicrafts, basketry, and rituals) in Southern Europe and Northern Africa;
- analyse the role played by botanicals in the traditional technologies and tools used in traditional cooking and healing practices, in producing textiles and basketry , and in dying operations;
- disseminate and exchange this heritage thorough pre-existing ethnographical museums and new conceived ethno botanical collections.
