abstract

The focus of this paper is to try to show how we can speak of ‘digital heritage’ by giving some directions according to the peculiar nature of digital physis. The key aspect that drives the considerations on digital heritage can be pinpointed in the main difference between this and the traditional CH: the lack of materiality. However, digital heritage neither can be considered as a form of ICH, for lack of the traditional and historic dimension; nevertheless, what the 2003 UNESCO Convention says is a feasible way to speak on this matter.The hope of this paper is to offer some standpoints from which start to analyse the peculiar form of internet culture, a content that is emerging in, for and from the web and that might pour in the physical world.
