Abstract

The Information Communication Technologies are transforming our way to work and to live. Their social and economical impact represents a key opportunity for new development in every field of knowledge. Another event is the awareness of the importance of cultural heritage, and the needs of exploit and manage it: the number of visitors to museums, historical monuments and archaeological sites, grows day by day. The extension of the concept of cultural heritage of various nature, the relationship between their conservation and the relative fruition issues new challenges such as the combined utilisation of various databases online, the creation of supranational and multilingual dictionaries. The rapid obsolescence of technologies furthermore imposes the attention to data storage. However, the aspects, which most involve the online user, are both the interface and easy access to different subjects and contents. This paragraph will provide a general overview on different approaches developed in Italy care of Regione Lombardia: SIRCoP, MMS and MIMS projects.
