, a project coordinated by Pere Ferré and Sandra Boto, at University of Algarve - Center for Research in Arts and Communication (Portugal), consists on a digital web-platform that opens to the general public the Portuguese Romanceiro Archive, a piece of heritage within the framework of Portuguese Folk Poetry. 
This platform aims to disseminate the huge corpus of the Portuguese Folk Balladry to a non-specialized audience, offering to the user, through a renewed website, a set of new resources and research tools that allow documented access to the more than 10.000 versions of folk ballads collected from the Portuguese oral tradition.
