Abstract

The documentation and interpretation of the political rites linked to the anniversary of the 1956 revolution and freedom struggle provides an excellent opportunity to interpret several phenomenons (political rituals, construction of memory, use of the past). the example the author had analysed is a good illustration of the process whereby constructed knowledge of the past acquires a visible form. The different memorial places are mainly associated with particular locations but they owe their real life to their use that is gained above all from the rites. He tried to point out how different political parties at local level appropriate memory, and how these constructed memories compete with each other.
