    Silver in People / Culture

In the far southeast of Estonia, we meet the politically unrecognized region of Setomaa, self-proclaimed by the Setos, his native people. Today more than ever, the Setos feel the need to preserve - especially for future generations - an identity that, over the centuries, has seen borders move like pieces of a puzzle, still unsolved today. The element that most distinguishes the Setos is a strongly identity culture linked to ancient traditions and indigenous customs. Hence the festive occasions become fundamental to defend their future and their uniqueness, above all trying to involve youngers.
