Explanation:
“‘THE WORLD’S SMALLEST VILLAGE’: FOLK CULTURE AND TOURISM DEVELOPMENT IN AN ALPINE CONTEXT” by Gabriela Muri

Tourism has become one of the most important systems for transmitting culture worldwide. Its history also indicates a successful custom of transmitting tradition. According to the Guinness Book of Records, “the world’s smallest village” lies in Austria. A self-styled tourist attraction, it unites the most important characteristics of a structure of symbols selectively prepared in alpine regions to transmit standardized representations of a traditional hometown ethos. This article seeks to show how such representations were derived from folk culture, but were ***refunctionalized*** through historic processes of European tourism development. “The world’s smallest village” thus serves as a case example illustrating the processes of global mass tourism.
