Additional details

PROMISE is an oral institution of the prestatal Albanian world, which was used to make deals among individuals, but even between individuals and institutions as well. PROMISE is a manner of good functioning of the deals and relationships among individuals and even wider. The PROMISE has the value and is intended to be the equivalent of an oral contract which, once given, cannot be cancelled or, the worst, to be overcome. The obligation of being faithful to oneself would never be carried out through a documental or formal proceeding. The artist has his own credo and he obeys to it event when he must keep silent and, in particularly and extremely tragical cases, he may accept his self-sacrifice also.
