This short catalogue was created to commemorate the exhibition held at the conclusion of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie project based at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. The idea of a conference or, alternatively, an exhibition to close the project was envisaged at the earliest stage of planning, in 2018. Almost unintentionally, however, although the events were proposed as alternatives, both ended up being organised, for different reasons. While a conference of this type is inevitably specialised, an exhibition can appeal to a wider and more varied audience and, after the ravages of COVID-19, it is perhaps among those events that best meets the need to return to normal life and activities. Research was heavily conditioned by the closure of archives and libraries, which were essential for finding historical sources; seminars, workshops and conferences could only be held online, with the loss of that direct contact and exchange, particularly of an informal nature, which are a corollary to both research – how many things are learnt in the corridors and not only on the desks of archives and libraries! – and to any form of dissemination and popularisation. This is also how the desire arose to set up an exhibition as soon as in-person attendance became possible again, namely in the concluding phase of MAT-MED in Transit. The Transforming Knowledge of Healing Plants.
