Abstract [en]

Place is here defined as a space given social, cultural and historical meaning through an ongoing intervention of people who are objects as well as subjects within this process. Thus place can be seen as a continuously ongoing process of (re)creation by those who live it. This essay intends to set out and illustrate parts of this process.

Fieldwork was carried out in Monte, the fictive name of a small village situated about an hour's drive from Rome, Italy. In order to show how place may be used as an analytical concept, three different ways in which this particular local (re)creation process takes place will be presented, followed by a theoretical discussion. The first example comes from Montese social life, the second from the village cemetery and the last comes from the yearly pilgrimages dedicated to the local patron saint.
