Through the narration of specific experiences, the essays in this volume help to trace the picture of the current state of research and trends in the world of information technologies applied to the history of medieval art, offering a glimpse of a rapidly growing reality and in continuous transformation. Both the pioneering projects and the more recent ones, completed or still in progress, demonstrate how the sector of studies on the Middle Ages is experiencing a period of great vitality in the context of Digital Humanities. The initiatives collected here, promoted by scholars belonging to universities and research institutes, are representative of various fields and sectors of interest, of different methodological approaches, of communication strategies and applied instrumentation, and allow reflection on the real possibilities of means at the service of art history. Allowing the reader to enter the workshop of collaboration between computer science and historical-artistic sciences, these contributions represent at the same time a wealth of "good practices" to the advantage not only of those engaged in similar enterprises, but also of those who want to undertake new.
