Abstract

The Information System of Cultural Heritage (SITBA) conducted by the Municipality of Reggio Calabria (ITALY), captures, enhances and makes accessible to a wide audience the complex work of urban archeology conducted under the scientific direction of Professor Francesca Martorano, from Faculty of Architecture of the Mediterranean University. Through a careful and scrupulous examination conducted both on archival material that on literature was realized an instrument - a kind of modern "map" - which allows both to scholars and citizens more demanding and attentive, to know the location of archaeological sites in the city, Rhegion Greek, Latin Rhegium until the Byzantine city. The work, which is the first example in Calabria of information and dissemination of archaeological, and thus historical, land knowledge using tools, is directed to the discovery and exploitation of the urban history of Reggio Calabria through the inventory of archaeological sites and artefacts discovered so far in the municipality. This allowed the Municipality, to inhabitants of Reggio who love the roots of their city and tourists to have a modern instrument that indicates the archaeological discoveries in the fabric of the town and also inform on the location of those monuments that have not left any trace except in documents. SITBA has many aims, one of these very important is to present to the population the great archaeological property, identifying and exploiting the strong witness presence of archaeological evidences of town. Another important aim is to feed and populate Municipal Informative System (SITCO) In the note, in addition to describing the technical aspects, the integration problematic between and about different informative systems, adopted technology solutions as well as future developments of the project, it has considered appropriate to emphasize the importance and expectations generated by the project by the city Reggio Calabria.
