Archive of the architect Giuseppe Damiani Almeyda accessible online

The archive of the architect Giuseppe Damiani Almeyda (1834 – 1911) is accessible online on the platform ArchiVista 3.1: http://www.archiviodamiani.it/

It is a pretty interesting private archive, rich in documents of different kinds: texts, graphic documents (projects, sketches, notepads), photographs (positives on paper, negatives on glass, stereoscopes), objects (paintings, sculptures, drawing instruments). This variety stems from his profession, but also from his cultural vivacity and sensitivity for anything related to beauty. 

Every graphic and photographic document has been digitalized, while objects have been photographed. Every digital image is attached to the description and are now visible on the website.
