Complete Archive heritage is available online through many online resources, result of cultural enhancement projects and of the institutional network.

Digitization of documents related to Verdi and Puccini

The digitalization of the Historical Archive started thanks to a joint agreement between the Italian Ministry of Culture, the National Department of Archives and Libraries, the general supervisory council for libraries and cultural institutions, and Casa Ricordi. Further strategic assistance comes from the Biblioteca Nazionale Braidense, where the Historical Archive resides, and the Laboratorio di Informatica Musicale (LIM) of the Università degli Studi di Milano, which furnishes the software for cataloguing and content management, designed and developed expressly for this project.
