Abstract

Abstract in English: After an introduction toward the characteristics of the region defined as a cultural area, these articles attempts to give an historical and geopolitical overview of Albanians and their culture, asserting successively on cultural stratification, local particularisms and unity. Then, going over the history of the national movement and the formation of Albanian nation at the turn of the century, it takes an account of the clash of Serbian and Albanian nationalisms they never fail to be exacerbated at any moment of the common history. The question is to understand if historical heritage and cultural identities could reasonably, other than justify, at least explain ethnic conflicts and nationalisms, or on the contrary they help simply to determine and better to rationalize interethnic relationship between social groups.
