Many of us probably remember ourselves as children, sitting on the lap of a grandparent, listening closely, careful not to miss a word of the stories we were told. These memories are remembered and conveyed as experiences of real life, lived.
They were told to teach us from past experinces, and to save the memories of lives lived in accordance with customs and values of another era. For many of us the importance of these experiences was revealed and grew as we became "grown ups", and we started to understand its true value. As time goes by we find ourselves trying to remeber and save , the stories our grandparents would tell us.
Before they disappear.
When this happens, when you're lucky enough to be able to find time in the busy schedule of daily life to sit and listen, you will discover an absolutely fascinating world.
We would like this project to be able to bring a glimpse of this magic to anyone with ten minutes of time to dedicate.
Video and audio are the means chosen: the video is what we think "mediates" as little as possible what should be a "pure" message. The voice, faces, and expressions are an essential part of a person and of their stories. The audio instead manages to go further back in time to tell of people that today are no longer with us. Recorded voices, are important and precious memories. Audio is also used in order to simplify the collection of memories, if you do not have access to a camera, to be able to listen and record by telephone...
Internet , the chosen instrument to spread the testimonies, allows flexible enjoyment with regard to the availability of content and access modes. It guarantees everyone the chance to contribute to the creation of content and allows easy creation of thematic paths.
Last but not least, the Internet is inherently the young people media, those who should primarily become recipients and custodians of the memory of experience.
Memoro - the Bank of Memories is a non profit project dedicated to the collection of the experience and life stories of people born before 1950. The format is audio or video clips of a few minutes.
This process is not an end in itself, but the structural free distribution of the collected contents. The chosen media is the Web, in particular a site for the collection and use of audio video content.
