We would like to invite you to the event Performing Arts Digital Collections: ECLAP. Opportunities, Advantages, Experiences.
Performing Arts Digital Collections: ECLAP. Opportunities, Advantages, Experiences is the second in the series of international events planned by ECLAP.
Nobel Laureate Dario Fo and Franca Rame will be special guests at the presentation of the European project ECLAP, which will take place in Rome on 20 October 2011, thanks to Centro Teatro Ateneo of Sapienza, University of Rome, and with collaboration of University of Florence (ECLAP coordinator), Compagnia Teatrale Fo-Rame, Fondazione Rinascimento Digitale and Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.
Nobel Laureate Dario Fo & Franca Rame will present their archive, which features unique videos, images and texts representing more than 50 years of activity of the Dario Fo and Franca Rame theatre company. The remarkable items of the archive are being made available to EUROPEANA, for the first time thanks to ECLAP.
“In our partnership with the ECLAP Digital Library, we intend to support ECLAP in its program of preservation, enhancement and social use of the artistic heritage through the provision of a unique access portal to the performing arts that will converge with Europeana” (Dario Fo & Franca Rame)
