Fondazione Memofonte

by Jean Marie Carey on June 14, 2014

Founded in Florence in 2000 by Paola Barocchi, when it was only an association, Memofonte proposed the on-line publication of texts and images that were not easy to consult and have at hand in the ambit of artistic historiography and of history of collections from the XV to the XX century. Having become a Foundation (since December 2006), MEMOFONTE aims at reinforcing its identity and being more available for institutional purposes in order to offer updated instruments of research and conservation. The Foundation also aims at giving a contribution to the long experience of traditional editors (linked to the Studio per Edizioni Scelte S.P.E.S.) in order to offer an easy comparison of various fundamental editions and the access to unedited manuscripts that, because of their entity, can only be data managed through computers. The results obtained in quality of offered materials and in strong fruition, suggest the promotion of new collaborations with Cultural Boards and Universities, in order to improve the Archives that up to now have been created with a method focused on various research projects.
