PARIS: Dozens of global traditions are candidates for inscription as intangible global heritage by Unesco this week, ranging from Italian opera singing and Bangladeshi rickshaw art to the Peruvian delicacy of ceviche.
The UN cultural agency´s Intangible Cultural Heritage Committee is expected to examine and approve 55 nominations.
These include a bid from Italy to include opera singing, an art “transmitted only orally” between maestro and pupil that attracts many students from abroad.
Bangladesh is hoping to inscribe the art of painting the three-wheeled rickshaws that ply its capital´s streets, contributing to a “roving exhibition of paintings” that is an “emblematic feature of urban life in Dhaka”.
