Unveiled this week, an Italian foundation aims to both preserve and give better access to the audiovisual heritage of the Catholic Church.
One member of the MAC Foundation, which takes its name from the Italian initials for “Audiovisual Memories of Catholicism,” said the foundation is working to create a digital library that will be “a single online access point” for historic archives related to Catholicism.
It will be “a great digital archive and portal of studies and documentation available to everyone,” Gianluca della Maggiore, director of a research center on Catholicism and audiovisual studies, said in a statement Tuesday.
The foundation’s president, Father Dario E. Viganò, told CNA the foundation will make an announcement about its first two to three projects in a few months, with a goal to complete them by the end of the year.
