Cultural Heritage

A super-fast connection in service of cultural heritage to combine history, art, and technology

GARR has been a longstanding partner in the world of cultural heritage, actively contributing to research, study, and the enhancement of cultural heritage.
The ultra-fast connection of the GARR network is a key tool for sharing and transmitting large amounts of digitalized data, including books, artworks, archaeological finds and artifacts, both with the scientific community and a broader audience.

Our community includes libraries, state archives, museums, supervisory bodies, central institutes of the Ministry of Culture, and international cultural institutions, with landmarks such as the Colosseum, the Uffizi Gallery, and the archaeological site of Pompeii.

Another example of collaboration between GARR and the community dates back to the 1990s: the National Library System (SBN), the network of Italian libraries promoted by the Ministry of Culture in cooperation with regions and universities, connected by the GARR digital infrastructure. These institutions collaborate with universities and research at both local and global levels, thanks to the interconnection of networks. On GARR, they share digital data and use web applications to actively promote the protection and enjoyment of cultural heritage.
