Archiporto: dalle carte d’archivio alle carte da gioco
The Porto family’s private archive held at the Castle of Thiene (Vicenza) is also a… castle of cards. More than 18,000 documents (XI-XIX centuries) transmit memories of words, lives and events which establish the history of a vast territory and its community. In addition to the inventory, preservation and digitalization of this heritage, the interdisciplinary Archiporto project includes among its objectives the identification of new strategies to communicate it to a wide audience: themes, stories and characters that emerge from archival records and become the protagonists of a game and a digital platform.
