The "AMBULO" Project (acronym of Arabic Manuscripts in the Bologna University Library Online) is promoted by the King Abdulaziz Chair for Islamic Studies – University of Bologna. The project is carried out under the supervision of Prof. Ahmad Addous, and coordinated by Dr. Valentina Sagaria Rossi. "AMBULO" has actually started in September 2017 and it envisages the revaluation of one of the most important and richest collections of Arabic manuscripts hosted in a public library in Italy: the Oriental Manuscripts Fund of the University Library of Bologna. The project aim is to digitalize and catalogue online all its Arabic manuscripts. In this respect, the Chair has assigned the manuscripts digitalization to the company MIDA (Bergamo, Italy), the description in Arabic and English to Dr. Valentina Sagaria Rossi. We specially thank the Bologna University Library for letting the Chair reproduce its Collection of Arabic Manuscripts and moving ahead with the Project.
