Treasures of the European Archives in Transmedia Exhibitions

Documents, which are the best testimony to our collective history, have been kept in archives since ancient times. They have rested in these repositories of knowledge for centuries, and now they come to light thanks to the three transmedia exhibitions created in the framework of European Digital Treasures project.

The narratives displayed in the exhibitions combine different technological tools that allow us to get to know our written past through multiple channels. On the basis that these documents have the remarkable ability to tell the micro-stories that made possible the great construction of Europe, these innovative products allow visitors to experiment and play, to learn and share, as well as to feel moved by our common past.
