Il lavoro di ricerca riguarda lo studio del Codice dantesco miniato su pergamena conservato presso la Biblioteca del Centro Dantesco dei Frati Minori Conventuali di Ravenna. Tale codice è noto alla comunità scientifica internazionale con la sigla di Phillipps 9589 e deve la sua notorietà al fatto non solo di essere l'unico palinsesto dantesco, ma anche di conservare, nella scriptio superior, uno tra i testimoni più antichi di quel ramo della tradizione manoscritta della Commedia di Dante chiamata tradizione a, la cosiddetta antica vulgata.
La ricerca, svolta in più fasi, si è proposta di approfondire gli aspetti tecnico-diagnostici, in particolare le finalità generali sono state:
- valutazione dello stato di conservazione;
- caratterizzazione dei materiali;
- miglioramento della leggibilità del testo dantesco e lettura del palinsesto;
- valutazione dell'ambiente di conservazione;
- digitalizzazione del codice per una fruizione intranet ed internet.
A tal riguardo ci si è avvalsi dell'impiego delle seguenti tecniche diagnostiche non-distruttive anche a scopo documentario:
- fotografia digitale;
- videomicroscopio ad analisi di immagine;
- colorimetria spettrofotometrica;
- fluorescenza a raggi X (XRF);
- colorimetria spettrofotometrica;
- sistema multispettrale per l'acquisizione di immagini (MuSIS Multispectral Imaging System);
- strumentazioni per il monitoraggio ambientale (termoigrometro, luxmetro, prelevatore polveri PTS e PM10)

Il fondo raccoglie i volumi antichi di astronomia acquisiti a partire dalla fondazione nel 1712 della Specola dell'Istituto delle Scienze, primo osservatorio astronomico pubblico in Italia.
Il fondo si costituisce grazie alla passione bibliofila e all’interesse per la storia della medicina veterinaria del prof. Maestrini, attività che hanno affiancato il suo magistero accademico in qualità di titolare della cattedra di Patologia Aviare all’Università di Bologna, Facoltà di Medicina Veterinaria. Il fondo comprende 715 opere a stampa di cui 8 cinquecentine, 11 seicentine, 65 opere del ‘700, 274 dell’800 e 357 della 1. metà del Novecento, oltre a una collezione di 125 bandi ed editti, in massima parte del XVIII o XIX secolo, emanati da autorità pubbliche preunitarie in tema di sanità pubblica.
IGCyr | GVCyr Images
Images related to the great majority of the inscriptions from Greek Cyrenaica (VII-I BC) and to the Greek verse inscriptions from Greek and Roman Cyrenaica (VII BC-VII AD). Each inscription of the corpus is illustrated with one or several images allowing to understand the typology of the support and to check the proposed readings.
BYZART – Byzantine Art and Archaeology on Europeana - collection arises from the eponym project co-funded by the European Commission as part of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) program. It gathers a great amount of images and audio-visual materials related to the Byzantine and Post-Byzantine cultural heritage, namely 76273 digital contents. They pertains to 29 previously never exploited archives, sometimes having required restoration and preservation measures. Original analogic archives included slides, glass plates, cardboards, gelatin silver prints, albumen prints, carbon prints, collotypes, photogravures, color prints, transparencies, watercolors, sketches and drawings. In addition, the collection encompasses one music archive of traditional Orthodox church music records and one audio-visual archive about the Byzantine monuments of Cyprus. For digitization purposes, high-standard digitization guidelines have been adopted by content providers. The customized metadata scheme is modelled on the Europeana Data Model and embeds Linked Open Data resources in order to ensure project interoperability and searchability. Most of the collection regards a great array of artistic and cultural expression related to the Byzantine Empire and its legacy. In order to maintain coherence and consistency with the original composition of archival collections, some records related to the Roman Imperial period are also included since comprised in the analogic collections. Therefore, the chronological range of BYZART collection spans from the 1st to the 20th c. AD and date references are categorized as follows: Imperial/Late Roman (1st-3rd c. AD); Early Byzantine/Late Antique Period (4th-6th c. AD); Byzantine Early Middle Ages (7th-9th c. AD); Middle Byzantine Period (10th-12th c. AD); Late Byzantine Period (13th-15th c. AD); Post-Byzantine (16th-20th c. AD); Western Early Middle Ages (7th-9th c. AD); Western Middle Ages (10th-15th AD). Further chronological details are sometimes included in the description of single items.
The collection consists of pictures from the research projects "Corpus of Mural Paintings 19th c". The autors of the pictures were photographs and scientific researchers of the Institute (second half of the 20th century).
IAS-BAS Music Archive
The musical archive consists of 2002 samples digitalized from analogic music records. They present church chanting dating to the second half of the 20th century recorded in Bulgarian churches from the associated members of the Institute of Art Studies. The archive includes also fieldwork recording of orally transmitted Orthodox chant.
IAS-BAS Photo Archive
The collection includes images of churches, monasteries, mural paintings, icons, liturgical vessels, cult objects, and everyday life items – objects related in different ways to Byzantine art. Some of them – the religious ones – kept the conservative form of the models, while others, like cult objects – pilgrim offerings, donor items, secular accessories etc. – fell easily under the influence of the dominant Ottoman culture or accepted the new trends of the Western European culture. The presented pictures reveal a large part of the religious buildings in Bulgaria – temples from the 1st century AD, rock-hewn monasteries, medieval churches and churches of 19th century, the most flourishing period in the construction of Christian buildings. Some of the buildings do not exist anymore.
The collection consists of pictures depicting monuments of the Roman, Byzantine and Post-Byzantine art on the territory of Bulgaria and its neighbouring countries in the Balkan Peninsula.
The collection consists in about 1500 images from the International Centre for the Documentation of Mosaic archive of Ravenna. Pictures mostly depict mosaic decorations of UNESCO Monuments in Ravenna.
The collection pertains to the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, which includes five Cyprological collections and two museums. It depicts monuments, architectures, mosaics, frescoes, icons related to Cypriot history and cultural heritage. Moreover, the collection has been endowed with more than 600 digital photographs including Byzantine and Medieval coins, museum exhibits of the Pierides Foundation collection and images of Byzantine Art and Architecture of the Holy Bishopric of Morphou.
The collection includes several artworks, namely devotional icons as well as brass and wooden crosses. Within the BYZART project, OUC created a synergy with the Museum to enrich its digital collection by commissioning high-quality digital photographs of Byzantine coins.
The digital collection of audio-visual contents consist of documentary episodes related to the history of Cyprus in the Byzantine period and the later Middle Ages. The three documentary TV series are History of Byzantine Cyprus, History of Medieval Cyprus, Church of Cyprus - Two Thousand Years of History and Culture. Further material was added to the collection concerning a variety of topics such as monuments of specific regions on the island. All material is in Greek language.
The collection comprises digital reproductions of published Late Roman and Byzantine artefacts from three museums of the Department of Antiquities, namely the Cyprus Museum (Nicosia), the Cyprus Medieval Museum (Limassol) and the Archaeological Museum of the Paphos District. It features a variety of objects, ranging from ceramics and tomb slabs to silver vessels and gold jewellery. The other part of the collection consists of selected photographs from related monuments - including the painted churches in the Troodos region, listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. It notably incorporates photographs from occupied Cyprus, yet taken before the 1974 war. The important contribution of this digital collection lies not only in bringing together the photographic documentation of relevant archaeological material from all over Cyprus but also in making it accessible for the first time as a whole to the general public.
The collection depicts artifacts and archaeological sites of Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and exhibitions of European museums with an emphasis on the Late Antique Period.
The collection includes digital photographs of artworks from the Museum of the Holy Monastery of Kykkos’s collections (3rd to 15th century AD). It ranges from jewellery to liturgical objects and from illuminated manuscripts to painted decoration.
The collection contains more than 600 digital photographs - taken in black and white and color - including digitized material from negatives, from the 1950s until the present. It also incorporates a small number of panels from travelling exhibitions, produced by the Photographic Department of the Press and Information Office. The collected material portrays the religious art and architecture of Cyprus ranging from the Late Roman period to the Late Middle Ages, with a special emphasis on its Byzantine cultural legacy. A notable part of the material records mosaic and painted decoration before and after ripping from the walls of now occupied Byzantine monuments in the aftermath of the 1974 war.
The collection comprises digital reproductions of a selection of published objects of the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia. A treasure of two hundred coins is among the featured objects. Great emphasis is placed on Cypriot medieval glazed ceramics, reflecting the strength of the museum’s collection.
The collection represents the digital reproduction of Giuseppe Bovini archive (1915-1975). The main part of the archive consists of typographic clichés for scientific journals like Felix Ravenna and Corsi di Cultura sull‘Arte Ravennate e Bizantina (CARB). In addition to that, the archive comprises also many personal images of monuments and excavations. The composition of the collection is extremely varied, as it includes pictures of monuments, objects from museum and library inventories, photographic documentation of excavation findings, such as pottery and glass artifacts, archaeological sites, topographic maps and plans, funerary monuments and liturgical furniture.
The collection includes the photographic documentation collected and preserved by research groups as part of archaeological missions or research projects of the Uniervsity of Bologna throughout the Byzantine Mediterranean. Before digitization, this material was preserved on heterogeneous media such as negatives, b/w and color printed photographs, digital images and videos. It pertains to monuments, archaeological sites and artifacts photographed for personal and scientific documentation over the last fifty years.
The collection includes a significant amount of images from the photographic archive of the Italian Archaeological School in Athens, made available thanks to the long-standing collaboration established with the Department of Archaeology in the context of archaeological research in Crete and the Dodecanese. The archive of Byzantine-related materials consists in the digital reproduction of slides and cardboards and represents a unique source of information not only about art and architecture, but also about the history of the Italian Archaeological School itself in Greece. One of the most interesting and valuable sections of this collection is about watercolors and old photos dating to the dawn of modern archaeology.
The collection includes digitized reproductions of photos coming from national photographic archives, such as the Fototeca Nazionale, but also from purchases or donations from museums, private archives and auction houses. Before digitization, the archive included mostly b/w prints on paper: gelatin silver prints, albumen prints, carbon prints, collotypes, photogravures, with a smaller section of color prints and transparencies. Depicted topics range from architecture to sculpture, mosaic, painting, manuscript illuminations, ipainting and jewelry.
