In recent decades, the concept of cultural heritage has evolved considerably. It is no longer restricted to monuments and collections of objects.
As per UNESCO, it also includes "traditions or living expressions inherited from our ancestors and passed on to our descendants, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe or the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts."
