Film and Media Heritage
Active since 2003, this group deals with the history, philology and restoration of cinema and of the archiving and editorial practices linked to the digitisation of the Media Heritage, through the development of projects dedicated to various topics, such as multiple versions of movies, lost and rediscovered films, cinematographic critical editions, forms of access to this particular heritage, new editorial forms of cinematographic historiography, preservation, restoration and analysis of the non-theatrical cinematographic heritage (amateur, experimental, medical-scientific, industrial, educational cinema etc.), and the history of the cinematographic and media culture.
The group works in collaboration with the laboratory La Camera ottica of the University of Udine, with the University of Potsdam and with CineGraph (Hamburg).
