A database concerning painting in Rome in the era of the painter Caravaggio (1571-1610). The data is contained in ZUCCARO, an event-based information system for cultural studies, developed at the Bibliotheca Hertziana. The main points of interest are Caravaggio’s social and artistic environment, his use of the works of Antiquity and his Renaissance predecessors, as well as gestures and facial expressions. A complementary database with technical and diagnostic data for ca. 110 paintings are available inside the Institute.
An SQLite with the complete library holdings – not only digitized items – as of 2020-12 with the most important metadata including 3 keywords per topic (person, corporation, place, subject) and their relevant GND identifications. With a bit of ingenuity the relevant keywords can be georeferenced and mapped onto Italy (using, eg, the ISTAT data, which is included in the package). Number of items: 1.000.000; number of items with keywords: 59.000; columns: 40 incl. Keywords; other content: Geonames Italy, Comuni Italy, Regioni Italy with respective polygons; Data link: http://dlib.biblhertz.it/rsc/B3Kat.sqlite

Bavarian Library Network Data
B3Kat OpenData The joint union catalogue of the Bavarian Library Network (Bibliotheksverbund Bayern – BVB) and the Cooperative Library Network Berlin-Brandenburg (KOBV) contains more than 27 million bibliographic records from university libraries, academic libraries and many other libraries of Bavaria, Berlin and Brandenburg.

Toponyms of Rome
As a left-over from the LVPa project we have nearly 800 georeferenced toponyms of the city of Rome. These cover the antique and the modern city. Columns are “name” and “location” for the simple toponyms plus the old LVPA data with references. No vector so far. Data link.
Geographic Metadata Mapped
The data here comes from our bibliographic data stored in the OPAC – or better, the catalogue of our consortium. Specific keywords have been extracted – municipalities in Italy and some selected places in Rome – and mapped onto a map of Italy. Web page with data link.
