Articolo presentato alla Conferenza di ASITA 2014 - Firenze.

Titolo completo: Le mappe e i portolani dell'Istituto di Studi Adriatici: valorizzazione di un patrimonio storico per la ricerca e la divulgazione.

A collection of ancient maps was found in a Venice complex of buildings owned by the Institute of Marine Sciences of the CNR, now under restoration. These materials, collected between 1933 and 1945 by the former Istituto di Studi Adriatici, includes maps, perspective views, pilot books and valuable and unpublished manuscripts. A work plan has been set together with with the University IUAV of Venice, whose first result was an exhibition on the evolution of cartography titled "The map is not the territory", opened to the public in 2013, followed by the realization of this portal web-gis via Geonode intended to accommodate in digital format the vast majority of historic maps that enable the interactive viewing of historical maps and their overlap to facilitate a comparison with recent maps, orthophotos, and satellite images. The multidisciplinary study initiated by ISMAR IUAV and has among its purposes is to offer to scholars and the public access to interactive maps and atlases, and the connection with external library resources. A selection of papers and pilot books about Venice, the lagoon and the Adriatic will be subjected to georeferencing and incorporated within the framework of research on the evolution geomorphological, environmental and socio-economic area already underway at these institutions.
The disclosure of this material in the network through a digital catalog, a critical edition and the organization of events and exhibitions will make available to a wider audience and institutions a rich repertoire of information and curiosity, in particular on the ancient Gulf of Venice.
