Abstract

Les villages des alentours de Hà Noi révèlent un riche patrimoine culturel, technique et architectural. Plus de 500 villages de métier spécialisés dans la fabrication d'objets d'art et de culte, de produits agro-alimentaires, industriels, textiles ou de vanneries sont accessibles à moins d'une heure de la capitale. Ce patrimoine a été préservé, malgré les dures périodes de l'histoire vietnamienne, et constitue la base culturelle matérielle et immatérielle de la société villageoise du delta du fleuve Rouge. Un tourisme culturel pris en charge par les artisans eux-mêmes et par les institutions locales tente actuellement de mettre en valeur ce patrimoine et de proposer de nouveaux débouchés pour les productions artisanales. Cependant, jusqu'à présent, peu de touristes s'aventurent dans ces villages, dont certains sont perdus dans un dédale de routes au milieu des rizières. Leur histoire et leurs savoir-faire sont peu connus du public. Mal signalisés sur les routes, ces villages abritent pourtant l'essentiel du patrimoine architectural, technique et religieux du haut delta. Ce livre, fruit de plusieurs années de recherches par des spécialistes du Vietnam, offre à découvrir dix itinéraires inédits, agrémentés d'histoires de vie, de légendes, de descriptions des techniques artisanales, de promenades fléchées et de cartes d'accès pour visiter une quarantaine de villages autour de Hà Noi. Il est l'occasion de rencontrer ces artisans anonymes, aux savoir-faire traditionnels, dont les œuvres s'exposent dans les nombreuses boutiques du quartier des 36 rues à Hà Noi et dans les capitales occidentales.

Abstract

With their festivals and traditional industries, their commun halls, pagodas, temples, and vernacular buildings, the villages around Hà Nội possess a rich body of cultural, architectural and craft heritage. Less than one hour from the capital are over 500 specialist craft villages, producing an array of religious or artistic objects, as well as food products, industrial goods, textiles, basketware and much more. Despite the trials and tribulations Vietnam has endured, these traditions have remained alive; today they consti­tute the basis of material, social and spiritual culture among the village communities of the Red River delta. The artisans themselves, and their local institutions, see cultural tourism as a way of further improving the fortunes of the craft village communities and bringing their heritage to wider attention. Until recently, few guides or tourists had forayed into these settle­ments, some of which are lost in the maze of routes and tracks that criss-cross the rice paddies of the Hà Nội hinterland. The history and skills they harbour have been inaccessible to all but a few specialists. Few of the villages are signposted, yet between them they are home to three quarters of the architectural, religious and craft heritage of the upper delta. This book, the fruit of several years' research by specialists working in northern Vietnam, comprises ten itineraries, blending potted histories, legends, descriptions of craft techniques, signposted walks and maps, designed to introduce travellers and lovers of Vietnamese culture to forty or so villages around Hà Nội. Many of us have seen their wares on sale in shops in and around the 36 streets of Hà Nội Old Quarter or in other cities in West. This book is about the true lives and enduring skills of the nameless artisans who made them.
