Monsignor Francesco Braschi is a doctor of the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, director of the Faculty of Slavic Studies and an IT professional for the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan. His scholarly interests include patristics and the liturgy as well as Slavic Studies. His projects include the electronic catalogue of the museums works, including the digitization of the Codex Atlanticus, a twelve-volume bound set of drawings and writing by Leonardo da Vinci.
Monsignor Braschi is extending access to the library’s documents across TV and the Internet. He uses a full complement of social media, including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp, in several different languages. In 1609, the Ambrosiana offered every visitor a pen, ink, and a stool, he says, and he sees today’s provision of new technologies as a continuation of that.
