Project name: “sTOria: Storia di Terra d’Otranto: risorse, istituzioni e ambiente”(sTOria: History of Terra
d’Otranto: resources, institutions and environment)
Area of research: The international project “sTOria” is a database that allows the computer processing of
historical data both quantitative and qualitative, drawn from a variety of sources (census, private, archive etc.).
It is a digital lab, accessible online, for the study of transformations of the Salento (the provinces of Lecce,
Taranto and Brindisi in the South of Italy) during the XIX-XX centuries.
It is based on the Geographic Information System (GIS) for the mapping of dynamic phenomena investigated
(demography, education, political consensus, industrial growth etc.).
Thanks to sTOria, you may also have historical sources interactively, building graphs, tables and pie charts based
on thematic criteria (chronological, spatial, statistical) user-defined.
