Istituto Luce Cinecitt√?¬† holds today one of the most important European film and photographic historical archives (www.archivioluce.com), in which are collected and digitally catalogued more than 12.000 newsreels, 9.000 documentaries, 3.000.000 photos, and several other titles, ranging from films, dating back to the origins of cinema, to collections and film clips of 20th century events. This is one of the largest audiovisual footage collections in Europe concerning the history of the twentieth century, and it has also been nominated by UNESCO-Italy for the membership registration in the "Memory of the World" registry.
Luce's Film Archive, with a total of more than 4.000 hours of footage, has been fully digitized and it was made accessible on-line since 1998. Today Cinecitt√?∆'√?¬† Luce exploits its archive commercially.
Within the last 10 years Cinecitt√?∆'√?¬† Luce has participated in several EU co-funded projects in the IST, eContentplus and ICT-PSP calls, aiming at developing best practices related to digitization and access in the audiovisual domain. Among them, European Chronicles Online (ECHO), Video Active, European Film Gateway, EUscreen, EFG1914 and Presto4U.
