Communication, presentation and exploitation

Comunicazione valorizzazione e fruizione

Cultural heritage of Orte

Purpose: the recording, recovery, appreciation and dissemination of the cultural heritage of Orte and its territory, with a particular focus on its archaeological zones, its natural features and its architectural complexes. Furthermore, it aims to identify a broader and more varied cultural offering. This will be based on the one hand on the enrichment of the collection of the Museo Civico, thanks to the programme of cataloguing the archaeological material held in the stores of the Superintendency of Orte (Museo Archeologico Nazionale dell'Agro Falisco – Civita Castellana) and the possible acquisition of private collections. On the other hand, a network of footpaths and tourist trails will be developed, using various technologies and devices to guide the visitor, in order to link Orte to its neighbouring communities and to give it a leading role within the Via Amerina Consortium.

Integrated methodologies and new technologies for communication in museums and the reconstruction of archaeological contexts

Purpose: the principal objective of the project is interdisciplinary research on the themes of understanding, presentation and exploitation though the use of new methodologies and technologies which can link historic-humanistic and technical-scientific wisdoms with the needs for effective communication of cultural heritage.
This objective will be furthered by new technologies for the recording of monuments and sites; the reconstruction of archaeological contexts; and the development of Cultural Virtual Environment applications, consisting of instructive 3-D films and digital solutions, for improved understanding of cultural heritage.
The project can contribute notably to attract new sources of funding and to the development and enhancement of competitive methodologies on the international stage with regard to communication and popular instruction through new technologies and solutions. The expertise developed in the Information Technologies Laboratory of Lecce also supports the creation of new professional vocations in its fields of excellence, through the training of young researchers in the various offices of the Institute.

NEPTIS – ICT solutions for the exploitation and “augmented” exploration of cultural heritage

Purpose: to create a model for engagement of actors in the field of cultural heritage, in which the user is not only a recipient but also an active contributor to the creation of content and services in the cultural heritage sector. The project aims to bridge the gaps in strategic planning with regard to the cultural heritage of Sicily and cultural tourism, in order to draw attention to a patrimony which is under-valued and barely promoted, following a systemically integrated approach. Indeed, NEPTIS is focussed on the cultural experience and the enjoyment of the cultural heritage, studying, defining and constructing “Conceptouring”, a prototype of an integrated system for the creation of services and applications (understood as a coherent and functional collection of information, multimedia content and histories) in support of the enjoyment of cultural trails. The system is a kind of “collaborative web-based authoring system” which both operators and users/visitors can use to construct cultural trails which are multimedia, interactive, dynamic, adaptive, contextualized, personalised and engaging. These trails offer the typical resident, visitor or tourist easy access to cultural heritage items and a personal experience of them, both before, during and after their visit.

This will generally be conveyed through personal mobile devices (smartphone or tablet) and/or through fixed devices on site.

IN-CUL.TU.RE –Innovation in Culture, Tourism and Restoration

Purpose: IN-Cul.Tu.Re. is a research project, winner in the MIUR classSmart Cities and Communities and Social Innovation, which concerns 12 “case-studies” in the field of cultural heritage within the Union of Communes of Grecia Salentina.

The choice fell on those cultural items which represent the complexity and heterogeneity of a heritage once considered to be less knownbut which is an important repository of historical identity, and which offer opportunities to initiate processes of reasserting collective ownership and of practical regeneration. In each case, research is being carried out in the field of non-destructive diagnostics, aimed at better understanding, restoration, energy efficiency and the development of ICT tools for its use and promotion. Alongside the scientific research, processes of communication and promotion of cultural heritage have been set in place, favouring the use of artistic devices, with the compilation of photographic reports, exhibitions, installations, video and textual products.

BYHERINET: Byzantine Heritage Network: Rehabilitation, Highlighting and Management in the eastern Mediterranean Basin

Purpose: to establish a network dedicated to the improvement and integrated management of the Byzantine cultural heritage in the eastern Mediterranean basin, through the development of itineraries, pilot projects, studies, best practices and international protocols. The last aspect is to be achieved through tools and systems of the Information Society and through collaboration and exchange of knowhow. The countries involved in the project are Italy, Greece and Cyprus.

Important churches, monasteries and settlements characterize the countryside of southern Italy, as too in Greece and Cyprus, and are already destinations for tourism and religious pilgrimage. The knowledge of this aspect of heritage is recognized as fragmentary and inhomogeneous, and there is in particular a lack of strategic means for its integrated and global appreciation.

The brief of the project is to establish a network, with the acronym “ByHeriNet”, dedicated to the cultural appreciation, integrated exploitation and management of those landscapes where the Byzantine heritage represents a genuine and important resource.

The guiding principles are the collaborative relations and the exchange of knowledge and experience between the partners involved in the project, with a view to reinforcing the communal identity of the various countries and producing both quantitative and qualitative results.

Filling the Gap: a scientific culture for the humanities

Purpose: to demonstrate the contribution which technological and scientific disciplines have made to certain branches of the humanities, such as archaeology, the history of art, philology and linguistics. IBAM, in collaboration with the University of Catania, is developing activities which will bridge the gap between scientists and humanists, through a new pattern of teaching the exact sciences and the use of new technologies applied to humanistic disciplines, in order to create a wider understanding of science. In particular, through the organization of a cycle of seminars (classes and scientific discussions) focussed on the importance of research, of scientific communication and the use of new methodologies and technologies in the humanities and social sciences, the project is aimed at university students, early-career researchers and students in further education. In parallel, the project is intended to roll out research on the photographic archive held within the ex-Institute of Archaeology of the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy of the University of Catania (now the Department of Humanities).

This is an archive which is now fully accessible as a result of the digitization of its entire content and its availability on line; the project will encourage the cross-fertilization of technology applied to topics in the humanities through experimentation with modes of archiving data which exist on paper alongside data currently existing only on the web, thus maximizing both their conservation and their diffusion to all users who wish to improve their own knowledge and skill.

MARTA talks: virtual stories of hidden treasures

Purpose: to provide an ‘accessible’ experience, by means of a Virtual Reality installation, of certain underground funerary monuments in the ancient city of Taranto, at the Museo Nazionale Archeologico there (MARTA).
A system has therefore been created which enables the user to visit remotely monuments which have been reburied or are otherwise inaccessible, offering an integrated experience of the relevant historical/archaeological documentation, wherever those are preserved.

The virtual visit is based on 3-D reconstructions of certain Hellenistic chamber tombs, whose grave goods are stored on on display in the museum. The experience has been reconstructed of three monumental complexes of the vast necropolis of Taranto, which present serious difficulties of access. The three chosen complexes are the Twin Tombs, the Hypogeum of the Gorgons and the Hypogeum of the Festoons. The account of each monument is intended as part of a chapter in the history of the city. A Virtual Theatre has been created for the presentation of the chosen monuments through pictures. From a technical point of view, this has involved the development of a real-time 3-D stereoscopic platform, implemented by means of a navigation system with a ‘natural’ interface, i.e. without the use of traditional pointing systems. From the viewpoint of communication, on the other hand, the narration is managed through a stereoscopic film.

Science & Technology Digital Library

Purpose: originating from a protocol of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers between MIUR and the CNR for the digitization of public administration and technological innovation, the aim of this project is to construct a Digital Library which puts science and technology at the disposition of everyone, promoting the widest possible use and participation. Within this project, IBAM is working on the creation of the first digital library, of the vast library resource of the Benedictine monks of the monastery of San Nicolò l’Arena of Catania: the aim is to safeguard rare and valuable texts by means of a ‘digital reality’ which will be both a research tool and a means of both preserving and making accessible an invaluable inheritance.

The staff of IBAM, in collaboration with the staff of the Department of the Humanities at the University of Catania, who are responsible for the survey, study and cataloguing of the books, manuscripts and images in the rich, and hitherto little known Library of the Benedictines (now incorporated into the collections of the “Joint Civic and A. Ursino Recupero Libraries” of Catania) are bringing to light studies in archaeology, numismatics, botany, natural history, [artificialia - ??], geography and new scientific discoveries.

The project has seen the creation within the IBAM office in Catania an infrastructure for digitization equipped with sophisticated machines and the latest generation of tools. This is now a laboratory distinguished by the possession of high-definition planetary scanners, currently unique in the south of Italy, which are capable of digitizing a wide variety of types of text (printed volumes, manuscripts, maps, plates, engravings, parchments etc.), maintaining the highest quality by exclusively non-invasive means.
