In 2023, the Sportsystem Foundation ETS became a beneficiary of the grant for Cultural and Creative Sectors for Innovation and Ecological Transition (TOCC) funded by the European Union – Next Generation EU under the National Recovery and Resilience Plan PNRR.
Thanks to this funding, in 2024, the Museum will be able to proceed with the digital archiving and cataloging of a substantial per of its material heritage, making it more easily accessible both on-site through designated museum stations and online through a web platform.
This activity will be managed by some professional members of the Made in Heritage group and internal staff.
The project, with a maximum duration of 18 months, includes three main phases:
- Phase 1 (December 2023- February 2024)
Adoption of specific inventory tools for the computerized cataloging of materials.
Transfer of existing inventories (paper and computerized) to a new software platform specifically dedicated to the management of historical archives and museums (xDams).
- Phase 2 (February 2024- May 2024)
Initiation of the digitalization of the museum’s heritage, focusing particularly on objects from the catalog archive and product archive. This will be achieved through the setup of a 360° photo laboratory (DGt_360).
- Phase 3 (June 2024- March 2025)
The third part of the project will involve the creation of two specific WEB tools for the use and dissemination of digitized collections and archives:
- An OPAC (Open Public Access Catalogue) platform – dedicated to professional users such as researchers and companies
- A multimedia content repository, accessible both on-site, through dedicated museum stations and online through a specific ‘Paths’ section developed within the Sportsystem Foundation’s website.
