The digital collections of words and images of the CTL - Scuola Normale Superiore: the case of Orlando Furioso

Serena Pezzini


The aim of this paper is to present the activities and research methodologies of CTL (Centro di Elaborazione Informatica di Testi e Immagini nella Tradizione Letteraria), a laboratory of the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, founded and directed by Lina Bolzoni. CTL’s objective is to investigate the complex structure of relationships between the linguistic and the figurative code in literary tradition, paying particular attention to the XVth, XVIth and XVIIth centuries and using information technologies both as an auxiliary research tool and as a medium for scientific dissemination. Here I shall be discussing the Centre’s digitalization projects, and in particular the project concerned with the Orlando Furioso and its remediation into images. This project, active since 2007, is, I believe, particularly representative of the progressive implementation within CTL of both traditional and computer-related methodologies in the planning of digital collections dedicated to words and images.
