« Les savoirs des acteurs italiens » : une collection numérique pour la mémoire des savoirs

Emanuele De Luca


In the context of the profound changes that the scientific community is facing within the new epistemological processes and research, inspired and provoked by the new digital era, new technologies and the web, this article aims to address the relationship between the history of theater and the modern digital humanities, through the digital collection «Les savoirs des acteurs italiens», directed by Andrea Fabiano at the IRPMF. Firstly, we shall question the last decade historiographical acquisitions that the collection offers about the cultural and theatrical exchanges between France and Italy in the 18th century and, secondly, the analysis instruments and availability of the data in the context of the new digital humanities. The role of the Comédie-Italienne in Paris for the transmission of the knowledge is also the key to the understating of the frame within which this knowledge is collocated, a domain that is both theatrical and musical, Italian as French. Similarly, this collection might be considered a melting point between the past and the present of the paper book and the digital documentation. It is also projected towards a future in which, increasingly, the new instruments will offer a different fruition of the materials and of the research experiences.
