  • Poliscriptorium Project

    The Poliscriptorium Project started in 2002, as an initiative by prof. Marchis, director of CEMED (now Museum of Politecnico). Its goal was to digitize textual, iconographic and multimedia materials, which were in danger of being completely lost, due to the physical decay of the medium they were stored on (acid paper, magnetic materials, etc.). The Project aimed to maintain digital formats always in line with the evolution of both hardware and software, and focused mainly, but not exclusively, on the preservation of documents related to technology development and "polytechnical culture" in general.

  • Il Gabinetto di Architettura antica e Tecnica degli stili

    The analysis of the photographic collection owned by the Main Library of Engineering (especially the hints provided by the stamps on the pictures' positives) made it possible to reconstruct an ancient and forgotten asset already present in its original core at the Scuola di Applicazione per gli Ingegneri: the one of the Gabinetto di Architettura Antica e Tecnica degli Stili.

    The e-book is the catalogue of an exhibition that was held at the Politecnico in 2015. The exhibition showed the photographic, books and documents collections once owned by the Gabinetto di Architettura, a laboratory active in the period from 1885 to about the Thirties of the Twentieth Century.

    The work contains essays framing the shown collections into the didactics of the Scuola di Applicazione per gli Ingegneri before, and lately of the Regio Politecnico.
