On January 25, 2006 the leading Italian State Television (RAI 3) web-related program, "Neapolis", broadcasted a reportage about the Portal of ROMANO-ARCHIVES.
In July, 2006 we started the new "light website".

We begin today our second year on line with a "replica" of our Portal, with a cool "City" style, reserved for Mac users and optimized for Safari and Mozilla Firefox, and with a completely new design for our "light" website.

We hope you appreciate our efforts to distribute more and more new materials from the ROMANO-ARCHIVES Collections, supporting us in our Mission: to enlight the less known faces of the Contemporary History and to revive forgotten masterpieces of art and beauty.

Thanks to the groups of Students and Staff from the following American Universities, constantly visiting our websites:
