Photography & Digitalisation
Photography is the foundation stone for the construction of a critically important visual platform for the museum.
The FoB will aim to help raise the necessary funds to create a library of professional images relating to all aspects of the museum’s collections. This valuable image library will then be used in all museum publications, promotional material and will form the basis for the subsequent digitalisation project that when complete will effectively offer world-wide access to scholars and enthusiasts of Italian sculpture and the decorative arts.
This area of digitalisation is an extremely current and active interest of museums all over the world, and with holdings as art historically invaluable as those within the Bargello, it is an essential obligation of the FoB to help position the museum within this modern accessibility stream.
