The ambitious digital outreach project supporting the Treasures of the Bodleian exhibition (2011) resulted in a responsively designed website, interpretative QR codes and a mobile app focusing on one question: What is a ‘treasure’?
Defining a ‘treasure’ was a central theme for the physical exhibition in preparation for a permanent treasures gallery opening in 2015.
The digital project turned this central theme into the following objectives:
In 2009 we developed a pilot project funded by the University of Girona (Spain), combining Educational Innovation and Development Cooperation, which was held at Shanti Bhavan, a rural school in South India.
Real training and virtual backup: this is the project Sapienza Fashion – ModaSapienza, based on a series of seminars held by top managers, analysts and entrepreneurs who best represent the Italian and international fashion system. We produced the website www.seminarimodasapienza.it with its corresponding Facebook page (modasapienza) and twitter account (#modasapienza). The website was launched in January 2012 following a warm-up period in December 2011.

The Jean Monnet Information and Research Activity on EU Foreign Policy and DEMocracy Promotion in the Mediterranean area (EUDEM) – coordinated by prof. Stefania Panebianco - was funded by the LLP of the European Commission and carried out by the University of Catania. The project appeared to timely grasp the winds of democratic change blowing in the Mediterranean area. Even if the research topic was identified in January 2010, it became even more relevant in 2011, when popular uprisings took place in many Arab countries.
