Waiting For ICA 2022

March 9 – June 22 – 2021

SOS Archivi in collaboration with ICA, DGA, ANAI and with the support of Symposia Srl has developed a calendar of digital talks waiting for ICA Roma 2022

Introduction

We created a “digital meeting place” for dialogue and discussion among archive professionals and students, scholars, citizens, companies and institutions.

Waiting for the ICA2022 congress, the idea was born to exploit the not so short time that separates us from the conference with a structured approach in the sign of cooperation and cohesion that characterizes our domain, exploiting the means that these pandemic months have forced us to experience, promoting communication initiatives, supporting the training of professionals and, above all, bringing the documentary heritage closer to citizens and users thanks to successful virtual meetings.

We have therefore decided to promote a series of fortnightly meetings that we have called “Waiting For ICA Roma 2022“, mostly intended for our interlocutors and, therefore, in Italian with the aim of attracting the attention of all (not only the insiders) on the organizational difficulty and on the technical complexity of forming and preserving archives, but also on the richness that the documentary sources offer us, guaranteeing the defence and the exercise of rights, protecting the memory and communicating the stories that the archives can tell.

It is now official news that in 2022, from September 19 to 23, Italy will host in Rome the ninth conference of the International Council on Archives dedicated to the function of bridge that the archives have always played.

The initiative is, in this case, mainly aimed at highlighting, analysing and discussing the role that institutions, professionals and documentary sources are increasingly destined to play in the future in a world of diversity, but also rich in spaces and tools for convergence of knowledge and tools, integration of information systems, dialogue and comparison between the global dimension of the network and the local communities and identities of territories and institutions.

Bridging the gap is, in fact, the title of the conference that aims to address the most critical aspects of this confrontation in the technological, cultural, political and institutional fields.

With a partnership between SOS Archivi, General Directorate of Archives, Anai and with the support of Symposia S.r.l. we decided to advance the candidacy of our country to host such an ambitious meeting.

The reasons that have guided us are mainly linked to the consideration that for too long Italian archives have suffered for the lack of resources and opportunities for international exchange, while maintaining the high quality of our great archival tradition and the methodologies used that have allowed us to contribute effectively and successfully to the best European and international research projects.

We thought above all about the importance of giving to professionals and students of archiving, scholars, interested citizens, companies operating in this field and the numerous public and private institutions that possess and retain archives, a valuable opportunity for dialogue and collaboration with colleagues from other countries.

We thought that the national technical-scientific community would have a serious advantage in discussing such challenging and crucial issues taking advantage of the presence in Italy of experts, working groups and research, representatives of all the world’s archival communities.

From these reflections came the idea of exploiting the not so short time that separates us from the conference with a structured approach in the sign of cooperation and cohesion that characterizes our domain, exploiting the means that these pandemic months have forced us to experience, promoting communication initiatives, supporting the training of professionals and, above all, bringing the documentary heritage closer to citizens and users thanks to successful virtual meetings.

We have therefore decided to promote a series of fortnightly meetings that we have called “Waiting For ICA Roma 2022”, mostly intended for our interlocutors and, therefore, in Italian with the aim of attracting the attention of all (not only the insiders) on the organizational difficulty and on the technical complexity of forming and preserving archives, but also on the richness that the documentary sources offer us, guaranteeing the defence and the exercise of rights, protecting the memory and communicating the stories that the archives can tell.

We will begin in March 2021 and continue until the conference in Rome. In presenting the first series of events, we invite you not only to actively participate in the meetings already scheduled but also to propose ideas and initiatives that can feed a path of knowledge and discussion aimed at giving new impetus and visibility to our sector.

In the awareness that the inevitable contradictions of our time need archives and archival knowledge that can fill the gaps of the present with balance, dynamism and competence and build solid bridges for an inclusive future.

Mitigating fire damage: the new Vertical Technical Rule applied to cultural heritage

In 2020, a new technical regulation concerning the prevention of fires in museums and cultural environment was drafted, published in the Official Gazette n.183 of July 22. The decree, drawn up jointly by the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Culture, approves the Vertical Technical Rule dedicated to the protection of museums and cultural buildings with their assets preserved.

With Gioacchino Giomi, Stefano Marsella and Luca Nassi we will deepen the aspects of this decree, and then talk about appropriate solutions with Emanuele Goretti, who will carry out live a demonstration of use of 3M™ Novec™ 1230

Good practices for securing diocesan archives

 

Prepare actions for the security of archives, including ecclesiastical archives, is essential to deal in the best possible way with any emergencies and it is important to ensure an orderly and coordinated management on the territory through a series of good practices for securing assets. In the world of ecclesiastical archives, and in particular diocesan archives, the work is carried out in synergy by the various presidios in the territory: the diocese, the ecclesiastical region, the National Office for Ecclesiastical Cultural Heritage and religious building.

Microclimatic conditions and air quality in archives

The monitoring and control of ambient air quality normally takes place outdoors, but even within the environments designated for the conservation of archival assets there may be sources of concern for pollution or, due to inefficient air circulation systems, pollutants can penetrate from the outside and accumulate.

We talk about it with the biologist Matteo Montanari, expert in the cultural heritage sector, with Matteo Bistoletti and with Ivano Battaglia and Francesco Santi, who will address the issue of safety in relation to sustainability, including in the GLAM environment.

Archive common good: the relationship with communities and proposals for enhancement of the value

 

The documentation preserved in the ecclesiastical, diocesan and parish archives in particular, is inextricably intertwined with the history of people and communities and places inhabited and built around them. Every action, whether linked to initiatives of knowledge, protection or valorization can only be the concerted expression of a people and its territory. Let’s try to tell some experiences.

Mons. Franco Lovignana will talk about cultural and pastoral planning for cultural heritage. We will listen to two experiences: Matteo Savoldi will tell the project of the Veronese ecclesiastical archives online; don Gianluca Marchetti and Veronica Vitali will talk about the “choral” enhancement of the illuminated codes of the Chapter of the Cathedral of Bergamo.

Corporate culture in archives: sustainability, digitalization and training role

What is the social impact of memory loss? And why is it essential to preserve and enhance business archives? Through the archives, training courses are built and the ability to build and create is preserved. For some time now, the archives have also faced two central issues regarding the future: digitalisation and sustainability. With Antonio Calabrò we will discuss sustainability and social impact of memory loss; Lucia Nardi will talk about business archive as a tool to strengthen and communicate corporate identity and Daniela Brignone will seak about the archive as a marketing and communication tool; Giorgetta Bonfiglio Dosio will discuss archival training today; finally, Amedeo Lepore will present the case of the digitized archive of the Cassa del Mezzogiorno.
