Living Heritage of Tourism. Case Study: the Bibliophile Ion C. Rogojanu


  • Nicolae Lupu


  • Ana-Maria Nica



Similarly to the results of other intellectual activities, achieving a collection of old books, documents and manuscripts, a library, seems to be an act of creation. It requires at least a certain level of culture and a conscious process of resource selection. „A man who collects a library throughout his life is in symbiosis with it” (Ion C. Rogojanu, bibliophile). It turns out that the movable heritage is directly connected to the person and personality of the holder, who thus acquires the character of living heritage. In the circle of professionals in the tourism domain and not only, as one of the greatest bibliophiles and... philanthropists is known to be Ion. C. Rogojanu. The unequalled, documentary fund which he created, has 6,000 bibliographical units, which he donated to the Botosani County Library
