A Child from Motovun - Childhood as a topic has not drawn much attention in ethnographic research. The material and intangible culture of childhood have disappeared over time. By describing some of the more important events that occurred during one’s upbringing, we attempt to revive what used to be everyday life for children in the past.
Growing up in smaller communities such as Motovun had characteristics of growing up in both urban and rural environments. At the beginning of the 20th century, childhood was quite different from today’s. One reason was that children had to take up the work of adults earlier.
