Enhancement of the iconographic heritage of religious bodies with the DAM software

The Sacred Convent of San Francesco in Assisi represents one of the richest places in culture in all of Italy.

For several years, it has been carrying out a careful restoration, cataloging and digitization of the photographic archive and in 2015 it adopted MomaPIX digital asset management solution to better manage and enhance a treasure that would otherwise have remained hidden.

The archive was created as a natural "container" of all visual documentation produced and preserved within the sanctuary complex of the Basilica and the Sacred Convent of S. Francesco in Assisi. In addition to the conservative purpose, it represents a subsidy for art scholars and guarantees the necessary reference documentation for restoration interventions.

The online digital archive has proved to be a very useful tool to allow the many interested people - scholars, editors, exponents of the Franciscan world and simple art lovers - a quick and in-depth search within the collection of the Sacred Convent.

Tools for sharing the historical archive contents

MomaPIX DAM software provides several tools to easily share the contents of the archive externally. Among these:

  • the ability to send private links via email with the possibility of downloading content
  • the possibility of sending newsletters to registered users to promote certain contents of the archive, with the possibility of checking whether the emails have been opened or not.

Searching for images can be done by categories, subcategories, keywords and dates.

It is also possible to purchase images, in digital format or through Fine Art photographic prints, thanks to the e-commerce for multimedia content integrated in MomaPIX DAM.
