About me

Research Associate at /DH.arc Digital Humanities advanced research centre of the University of Bologna. She holds a master degree in History (LM84) and a PhD in Library and Information Science from the University of Bologna. She has worked as metadata specialist and ontology engineer at the Multimedia Research Centre (CRR-MM) of the University of Bologna and she was consultant at the Knowledge Media Institute (KMI), Open University, Milton Keynes (UK). Currently, she works at the Department of Classical Philology and Italian Studies (University of Bologna) and she is involved in The Open Biomedical Citations in Context Corpus and SPICE projects. She is also member of the editorial board of Umanistica Digitale, and ambassador for the Federico Zeri Foundation (Bologna) in a number of committees (PHAROS, Linked.art, ARTchives).

research topics and buzzwords

Digital Humanities is a thing. Doing it for real is something else. I've experimented Semantic Web technologies on several disciplinary topics.

  • Digital Art History
  • Digital Philology
  • Library and Information Science
  • Cultural Heritage Data Management
  • Semantic Publishing
  • Open Citations

After a five-year experience with art historical photo archives and cultural heritage institutions on the application of Semantic Web technologies to cataloguing data, I recently moved into the marvellous world of Open Science, where I found legendary beasts such as open citations, text mining techniques, and bibliometrics.

Projects

In the last years I've been involved is many projects related to cultural heritage data and bibliographical data. Here I selected some of those - my story so far.

The Open Biomedical Citations in Context Corpus

2019-ongoing

Semantic publishing // Open Citations

A new project to enhance the OpenCitations Corpus, as part of the Open Research Fund programme.

The objective is to extract citations from scholarly publications and provide data for each individual in-text reference and its semantic context, making it possible (1) to distinguish references that are cited only once from those that are cited multiple times, (2) to see which references are cited together (e.g. in the same sentence), (3) to determine in which section of the article references are cited (e.g. Introduction, Methods), and, potentially, (4) to distinguish the function of the citation. The Open Biomedical Citations in Context Corpus (CCC) is a project funded by the Wellcome Trust, that will make the OpenCitations Corpus (OCC) more useful to the academic community by significantly expanding the kinds of citation data held within the Corpus.

ARTchives

2019

Digital Art History // Cultural Heritage Data Management

A LOD-based cataloguing system of notable art historians' collections.

The objective of ARTchives is to create a knowledge graph of art historians’ archives for historiographical research purposes, so that users can identify and retrieve archival fonds relevant to their studies, and researchers can answer research questions related to historiographical topics, such as: historians’ relations, debate on research topics, bibliographic sources addressing such topics. Several institutions contribute to the project, namely: the Federico Zeri Foundation (Bologna, Italy), University Roma Tre (Rome, Italy), Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa, Italy), Biblioteca Hertziana (Rome, Italy), Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz (Florence, Italy), Getty Research Institute (Los Angeles, USA).

mAuth

2018-2019

Digital Art History // Library and Information Science

A Semantic Crawler and recommending system of artwork attributions.

mAuth is a proof-of-concept tool for art historians, data collection managers, and curious, who want to collect information - historians' opinions, motivations, bibliographic references, and images - about the history of authorship attributions related to artworks of the Modern Art (15-16th centuries). The aim is leveraging Semantic Web technologies to (a) support historians' daily tasks (such as retrieving information and sources), (b) evaluate the methodology underpinning decisions made by art historical data providers, and (c) investigate how concepts like 'authoritativeness' can be automatically interpreted given a set of rules and believes shared in a community. Attributions are sorted so as to immediately highlight the most well-documented, updated, and authoritative ones. The ranking is based on common requirements in the art historical methodology - e.g. timeliness of the attribution, completeness of information, and trustworthiness of the source of information.

BCite

2018

Semantic publishing // Open Citations

A prototype for bibliographic references correction and creation of Linked Open Data according to the OpenCitations data model.

The objectives of the BCite project are twofold: (a) provide a basic workflow that supports editors in the management and correction of bibliographic references, and (b) develop a tool that creates open citation data compliant with an existing RDF-based citation repository: the OpenCitations Corpus

Semantic Web MIDI Tape

2018

Library and Information Science // Cultural Heritage Data Management

Application for playing and transforming MIDI tracks in Linked Open Data, populating the MIDI KG and recommending to users related resources.

The objectives of the BCite project are twofold: (a) provide a basic workflow that supports editors in the management and correction of bibliographic references, and (b) develop a tool that creates open citation data compliant with an existing RDF-based citation repository: the OpenCitations Corpus

Paolo Bufalini’s semantic scholarly edition

2018

Semantic publishing // Digital Philology

Linked data-based digital scholarly edition of the notable Bufalini’s notebook.

musoW

2017

Library and Information Science // Cultural Heritage Data Management

Linked-data based catalogue of online musical resources.

The contributions of the musoW project are the following: (a) a LOD dataset of catalogued musical resources, as well as a related list of significant SPARQL queries; (b) An analysis of the distinguishing features of each type of data; (c) a set of research themes that are the focus of data oriented musical research, extracted from the corpus; (d) and assessment of the LD-readiness of the resources, by classifying the resources with respect to the 5-Star Web of Data schema.
