Non di sole mostre vivono gli archivi

Micaela Procaccia    Associazione Nazionale Archivistica Italiana - ANAI, Roma, Italia    



The current phenomenon of the proliferation of exhibitions presenting different pieces of cultural heritage, sometimes with considerable public success, affects the archives sector in a modest way. Historical documents are intended for the study of researchers and largely not aesthetically attractive to the general public and effectively communicated in slower and more complex ways: in-depth educational initiatives, web portals that provide information on the historical and documentary context, dedicated TV programs. The importance of historical memory and cultural heritage as a whole, as a factor of identity and civil conscience was underlined by the experience of the coronavirus pandemic.
