Mediterranean network for the valorization and fruition of Inscriptions preserved in museums (MEDINA)
Start date: May 15, 2012, End date: May 15, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Jordan and Lebanon are home to an important and exclusive Nabataean and Phoenician heritage. The history of Phoenician cities and the Petra Nabataean kingdom is nowadays almost exclusively known by epigraphic material. The ancient people of Jordan and Lebanon produced countless pieces of artworks and inscriptions that bear an undeniably unique historical value. However, time is slowly corroding such heritage. On the one hand, this cultural heritage is suffering the negative influence of nature and people. On the other hand, such heritage is often neglected by populations. To enhance the promotion, utilisation and conservation of epigraphic heritage in Jordan and Lebanon, MEDINA will apply innovative IT solutions and develop dvertising/marketing strategies for concerned museums. Expected Results: • Creation of a thematic website dedicated to the historical and epigraphic heritage preserved in selected Jordanian and Lebanese museums • Multimedia points implemented in Jordan and Lebanon • Collections of Jordanian and Lebanese museums digitized and made available through paper catalogues • Museum staff and students trained in digitization techniques, as well as in marketing and communication strategies • Increased number of visitors in concerned museums
