Creation of the CIRC: Centre international de recherches sur la Castagniccia

Vincent Battesti


Yes, it was time in 2018 to get down to business.
- Launch of the CIRC: Centre international de recherches sur la Castagniccia.
(or “Centre interdisciplinaire”…)
Translated from French into English, it should be the ICRC: International Centre for Research on Castagniccia (or “Interdisciplinary Centre for…”), but will miss the humorous wink as CIRC is pronounced in French as “cirque” (circus).

Located in the hamlet of Nucariu (municipality of Nocario, 20229… waiting for an other headquarter ? :-). It can be seen in the first photograph.
The idea is quite seriously, with no funding and with the means at hand (thus taking its time), to create a hub of encounters with colleagues and students, with this territory as a pretext: a collaborative lab. where “us” prevails, a CIRC-US?
In fact, this CIRC already hosts the project Castagniccia (Corsica), elaborated with François Ireton.
