Cavallini’s Bible soon online
The digitisation of a masterpiece of Medieval art, the Pietro Cavallini’s Bible, was launched within the Science & Technology Digital Library Project. The Bible is one of the most famous illuminated codices preserved at the Ursino Recupero Library in Catania.
The initiative is carried on by the Institute for Archaeological and Monumental Heritage of the National Research Council (IBAM) in collaboration with the Humanities Department at the University of Catania and with the Library itself.
IBAM started the digitisation of a selected core of the huge historical and cultural heritage of the Ursino Recupero Library (more than 270 thousand volumes).
The use of the most advanced technologies will allow to make rare and little known treasures available to everyone.
Technologies of the future reveal jewels of the past
