Heritage Thinking. Approaching Communities with Communication in the Venice Countryside
Digital and Cultural Heritage studies reinforced the meaning to communicate and make creative use of information to express complex data. Moreover, the power of narratives and re-living memories lead to the creation of a series of emotional events. This paper focuses on a series of case-studies regarding the interplay between society and the landscapes around Venice (Italy), and the way cultural memory is encoded and interpreted. The communities’ engagement is reinforced by the use of a citizen-science approach, which aims at facilitating the dialogue, sharing knowledge and involving citizens in academic research and dissemination of results.
