Cultura populară bănăţeană în context istoric şi etnografic
Banat region is recognized as a good interethnic cohabitation territory, and as a model of social cohesion, promoting identity and acceptance of otherness. However, Banat is an area in which the phenomenon of cultural traffic expands from central and western European ethnical culture, located on this territory in the eighteenth century: Germans, Hungarians, Czechs, Slovaks, a.s.o, to the indigenous people formed by Romanian and Slavic populations: Serbian, Bulgarian, and vice versa, from traditional Romanian culture, archaic, to the modern central and western European culture. Because of this phenomenon of acculturation appeared cultural values that have become trademarks of identity today. Banat also has a rich ethnographic culture, which led Lucian Blaga to give it the name of „Romanian Ethnography Baroque”.
