Dr Andrea Nanetti first theorized Engineering Historical Memory (EHM) as a Visiting Scholar at Princeton University in 2007. The first EHM tests on highly cross-linked historical data have been published in Italy in 2008 (local urban historical memory transmission)[1], 2010 (global  views and networks)[2], and 2011 (regional man-heritage-landscape systems)[3]. These pioneering research and publication projects are at the basis of the subsequent and related digital humanities projects of this web platform.
