New methods for the dissemination of the research on the city: multimedia tools for the sharing of documentary archives

Giuseppa Novello, Maurizio Marco Bocconcino


The contribution illustrates some methodological and operational considerations that are developing within the articulated process that the Politecnico di Torino, in the different components (library and museum system and departments), has put in place to promote the dissemination of its historical, archival and research heritage understood as a composite system of knowledge and information to be enhanced. The reflection, of a methodological nature, refers to some archive materials that are currently not sorted and for which there is a digital installation project that aims to associate conservation actions with further opportunities for more up-to-date access methods to enhance the dissemination of content and improve certain aspects of communication; for this occasion we will focus on those repertoires of sedimented research and and studies, of different levels of detail, which are specifically aimed at the analysis of the urban reality in Turin. They are rich in conceptual elements, brought to life by expressly conceived graphic supports, which could effectively exploit the performance of digital technologies and provide, through more efficient processes of sharing, value to the most recent studies on the City.
