Monsignor Cesare Pasini, Prefect, Vatican Apostolic Library
"The Apostolic Library contains some of the oldest texts in the world that represent a priceless legacy of history and culture. It's very important that these documents are protected, and at the same time made available to scholars around the world. Thanks to the generosity and expertise of supporters such as EMC we are able to meet these goals, preserving a treasure-trove of rare and unique texts in a format that will not suffer from the passage of time."
Gianni Camisa, Managing Director, DEDAGROUP ICT Network
This is a highly complex project of immense cultural value. We are pleased to offer our expertise around dematerialization to a complex project of such historical significance. We take great pride in our involvement in the digitization of the Apostolic Library."
EMC Executive Quotes:
Michele Liberato, President, EMC Italy
"To manage and protect information is part of our mission. The Apostolic Library is one of the oldest libraries in the world and we have a duty to ensure that the knowledge and beauty of the manuscripts in it are available to all in the future. This project will help to preserve and make available a unique heritage of knowledge."
Marco Fanizzi, Country Manager, EMC Italy
"Where once knowledge and information would have been stored on the page, facilitated by the scriptoria or later the printing press, today EMC serves the same purpose through our storage technologies. The collaboration with the Apostolic Library is an incredibly important project and will provide future generations with access to knowledge and insight that may otherwise have been lost."
