The invention of printing and mobile characters at the end of the 15th century brought new technology and products to Europe – novels, newspapers, almanacs, dictionaries… all with as much influence on the society of the day as the ideas, debates and action of our modern wiki pages, blogs, and social networks. What is happening with the digital revolution? Like our daily lives, the cultural sector is being transformed in how it creates, produces and transmits, and in how its product is used. Knowledge is multiplying, professions are changing, and the interaction between cultural operators, public authorities and the economic sector is evolving. Between heritage, creativity and digital technology, Cultural Centers – Historic Monuments are joining to debate around digital issues.
