International Wine Label Museum

This museum was conceived in 1987 by the art critic Professor Armando Ginesi. It is located in Cupramontana, the heart of Verdicchio wine region, which is especially conducive to our endeavors. The museum is not only intended as a international repository of wine labels but to encourage an appreciation for this art form. Over the years, the museum's endowment has been enriched with almost 100,000 labels from around the world.

Every wine producer should think to visit this incredible Museum in Le Marche. With Wine Labels from early XXVIII Century, everybody can get inspired about an attractive design to give to bottles of distinctive wines.

SCAPE - SCAlable Preservation Environments

SCAPE - SCAlable Preservation Environments | Pittsburgh Conservation | Scoop.it

The SCAPE project will develop scalable services for planning and execution of institutional preservation strategies on an open source platform that orchestrates semi-automated workflows for large-scale, heterogeneous collections of complex digital objects. SCAPE will enhance the state of the art of digital preservation in three ways: by developing infrastructure and tools for scalable preservation actions; by providing a framework for automated, quality-assured preservation workflows and by integrating these components with a policy-based preservation planning and watch system. These concrete project results will be validated within three large-scale Testbeds from diverse application areas.
