Archival-bibliographic documents (expecially cartography)
The cartographic collections to be inserted in the VENIVA virtual archive include drawings, sketches and maps on Venice, Crete, Cephalonia and other Greek territories. The maps relate to the history of Venice in the period ranging from the middle ages to the unification of Italy and explore the economic, political and cultural relationships between Venice, Greece and Austria. They are heterogeneous documents since they belong to different types of cultural institutions with different standards of description and cataloguing methodologies.
The publishing activities
VENIVA will help authors and scholars with the circulation of their works through on-line publishing. The outcoming editorial collection will comprise critical and historical analyses - virtual exhibitions,papers, dissertations - written by scholars about the primary sources stored in the VENIVA virtual archive with special attention to cartography.
