Cultura, memoria e archivi digitali

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Culture, memory and digital archives

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] The authors delve into the theme of the digitization of culture, which has its roots in the European context, in a perspective aimed at enhancing the cultural heritage over time, along various lines of research that concern the realities today involved in the digitization of archives, both as objectives to be achieved, both for the difficulties and challenges they imply. Digitization is in fact the reference tool for the creation of a sustainable culture, widespread and made accessible by cultural institutions to different audiences, according to a humanistic approach that assigns institutional brands a new role as 'inclusive' subjects. Specifically as regards the relationship between media and archives, digitization has opened up new possibilities not only for the recovery and conservation of materials, but also for access, sharing, reuse in unpublished forms of narration. In the case of television in particular, the digitization process has left some open questions since its inception, relating to the lack of homogeneity of the available archives, the specific objectives of creating an archive, and the necessary contextualization of the materials it contains.
