On Tuesday 29 May, the seminar “The instruments of knowledge in the digital world” is taking place in Rome, in the lecture hall of ISTAT (via Cesare Balbo 14, at 2 pm).
The event is focused on the instruments for collective management of knowledge (such as Wikipedia), on the relationship between digitalisation and information and on the multiple opportunities offered by digitalisation in the valorisation of the national cultural heritage. In this framework, the responsible of the Indire’s historical archive, Pamela Giorgi, is going to talk about Fotoedu, the project for digitalisation and cataloguing of one of the most important Italian photo collections on the history of school and educational systems. The original archive collection dates back to 1925, Indire’s birth year, and has more than 14 thousand imagines from the end of the 19th Century to the mid 60’s. The uploading online of this photo archive aims to valorise and make known, as it already happened with FISQED ( historical Italian reserves of notebooks and educational materials), a documentary legacy of great scientific interest.
The seminar falls under the 3rd edition of the week of digital culture, promoted by DiCultHer the network including more than 70 universities, national research bodies and cultural institutes.
