What is Valais*Wallis Digital?

The star project "Valais * Wallis Digital" invites you to commemorate Valais' bicentenary by building and preserving the collective memory of the "old country." It is a call to "dig up" your memories - pictures, movies, soundtracks or other files that "sleep" perhaps in an old box in the attic of your home - to digitize and share them with the community on the Valais*Wallis Digital platform.
