THE LEGAL PROTECTION OF CRAFT AND CRAFTS AS A WAY TO PRESERVE A PEOPLE´S IDENTITY: BILROS INCOME
This study aims to analyse the framework of legal protection that has been created, in order to try to preserve and encourage regional communities that develop manual work related to crafts. Many artefacts, such as ceramics or handmade lace, are a cultural manifestation of traditions from certain areas of the country, with particularities that are not likely to be replicated in another area. The preservation of these ways of making pieces that have cultural value have been the target of city council initiatives that promote craft shows and competitions, to encourage younger sections of the population to initiate such dynamics, so as not to lose the know-how that can be done. “dying” with older people.Throughout the present study, we propose to analyse the immediate impact of these measures, and their framework, applying it to the case of “Bilros Lace” typical of Peniche, in the western part of the national seafront. To this end, interviews with intervening agents will be analysed, both at the municipal level and Peniche embroiderers, to assess the dynamics of the art they promote, the economic impact on the region and the maintenance of the region's cultural identity.
