Virtual displays for the Luigi Chiarini Library

The idea of creating Virtual displays for the Luigi Chiarini Library at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia arose from a desire to inform a wider public about this rich bibliographical heritage. With this Virtual displays project, the staff members are therefore providing a different, innovative way of operating as a “Library”.
