The Muruca framework is currently used by several Digital Scholarly Editions.
For the Muruca latest version at work, see:
Galassia Ariosto is the Digital Scholarly Edition of the ERC AdG project “Looking at words through images”, leaded by Lina Bolzoni, CTL-SNS. The CTL team has always been interested in studying the relation between text and illustrations, mostly focusing on the first chivalric poems that were printed in Venice starting in the 16th century. The project Galassia Ariosto is a in-depth study of the relations between the text of Orlando furioso (and other chivalric poems like La Gerusalemme Liberata, Orlando Innamorato, Tredici canti del Floridoro) and the illustrations sets that were produced to enrich the text.
Net7 was involved to design and build the digital archive where all this data are stored and made accessible on the web:
- A back-end system that allows the team to perform their research, inserting images, texts, comments, entities and building relations between all those elements, including portions of images and texts.
- A front-end user interface to make all this work public and accessible to the world.
This work will continue to grow and will include all the works of Gramsci and their translation into many languages, as well as copies of manuscripts of major works and the digitization of various historical and critical texts of Gramsci.
The project was financed by an FIRB (2013-2015).
Daphnet’s archives are primarily aimed at giving access to primary sources, complemented by secondary sources and critical scholarly instruments.
The Orlando Furioso research project is run by the CTL Lab at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa. The aim is to contribute to the debate, on the levels of both theory and applications, concerning the forms and functions of the word/image nexus in the visual and literary culture of the High Renaissance.
