Francesco Avolio

Francesco Avolio studies historical sciences at the University of Naples “Federico II”. The curriculum that he chose has a focus on the medieval and early modern Europe. His personal interests include various aspects of the late-medieval European and Mediterranean sphere of studies: from the feudal society’s institutions and the medieval cultural traditions to the civilian and military architecture and the naval innovations of that age. During his first year in the master course, he met professor Antonella Ambrosio, which held a course in Paleography and Diplomatics. Thanks to her, Francesco approached simultaneously the world of the medieval documentations and archives and the subject of the Digital Humanities.

Ti Racconto la Storia is a portal, integrated in Italian National archival system (SAN) developed with the financial support of General Directorate of Archives (DGA). Its name is a word game meaning, “I tell you a story” or “history”.

It consists of a digital library hosting audio and video collections of oral history, resulting from research projects carried out by institutions and independent researchers, kept in public and private archives. The collections document several aspects of 20th century Italian social life and history, from the point of view of individuals or communities. The portal “Ti Racconto la Storia” weiterlesen
