"The research intends to set up a data-base of unpublished images taken from family records of young peoples condition in the 20th century working together with those professors of the University Departments Rimini and of the History Department, who will be interested in taking part in the project. The educational activities and the following seminar lessons will represent the privileged moments for the data retrieval. The material will be digitised and catalogued and then put online to be used for didactic purposes and cultural, and scientific-editorial projects.
The photographic collections, coming from this study and those coming from family photo-albums, have not been fully made use of by the historical research. Even though from the end of the 1800s a need arose to create photographic archives, in the knowledge that the images would have been the most precious documents within a century. The photographic image is a network of notes that the camera lenses press into a complete image. The breaking up of the various particles of an image allows a team of researchers to provide each photograph with a comparative and diachronic reading of the structural changes, concerning culture and collective mentalities through the generational cycles."
