, 2021, undergraduate thesis
Abstract: Culture is one of the fundamental aspects of human existence. Because of that, it is necessary to preserve little aspects of it that make a particular community unique. Popular traditions and local habits are important to create and maintain one's own identity in the context of a vaster society. This research aims to enhance the folk culture of Benečija and to contribute to building a more concrete proof of the existence of this culture. The paper analyzes the history of this border land, focusing on its literature and on a particular legend titled ''Kraljica Vida,” which has been transcribed by the pen of many authors of both Benečija, and elsewhere. Through the comparison of these texts, it is possible to recognize the influence of different cultural currents, that have always characterized the identity of Benečija.
