The database focuses on early postcards of the Macerata Province.”Cartoline Macerata” shows them, who produced them and where, how they were used, their significance, in short, their historical context. Hopefully, this site will prove that postcards are indeed a tremendous visual resource to analize the architectural changings in towns, landscapes, costumes.
The Project was created under the patronage of the Fondazione Carima.
The database primarily aims at being a reference and research instrument for scholars and students of the period. This is a virtual library for a type of material not previously studied at scientific level. (Especially when from early 20th century, postcards are rarely found in public collections.) As a work in permanent progress, the database will be updated and enriched as research progresses.
I am passionate about Le Marche Region in Italy, follow me to discover it.
