Non di sole mostre vivono gli archivi
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 Historical documents are intended for the study of researchers and largely not aesthetically attractive to the general public and effectively communicated in slower and more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.
