Editor/Author Biographies
Antonio Cartelli is an associate professor in experimental pedagogy at the University of Cassino and Southern Latium (Italy). He holds degrees in mathematics and physics from “La Sapienza” University in Rome and currently teaches educational and learning technologies and ICT literacy. His main fields of interest are ICT in teaching/learning processes, ICT in knowledge management, and Web technologies in education and e-learning.

Marco Palma is full time professor of Latin palaeography in the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Cassino (Italy). His main research interests are the morphology and development of different scripts of books and charters in the Western Middle Ages (i.e., from the 6th to the 15th century). He is also working on the material aspects of manuscripts, as well as the transmission of classic and medieval texts before the invention of printing. He is particularly interested in the theoretical and practical problems of the description of medieval manuscripts, and the diffusion of scientific information and didactic contents through the Internet. The open catalogue of manuscripts, his recent main project, conceived some years ago along with Antonio Cartelli, was so far realized by two historic libraries in Italy (Malatestiana of Cesena and Lancisiana of Rome).
