A Look into Italy’s Provincial (State) Archives…

Many of Italy’s provin­cial archives have YouTube videos on the inter­net which can give you a unique glimpse into their archives and a view of the mate­ri­als not often seen by the aver­age researcher. Below are links to a few videos that I thought you would find inter­est­ing.

Archiv­io di Sta­to di Napoli

Archiv­io di Sta­to di Bari

Archiv­io di Sta­to di Paler­mo

Archiv­io di Sta­to di Pia­cen­za

The Archiv­io di Sta­to di Milano and the Archiv­io di Sta­to di Tori­no also have their own Youtube chan­nels. You can search for the chan­nel by name.

Many also have their own Face­book page where you can ask ques­tions and find out how to reserve mate­ri­als for your onsite research trip. Good luck in your research!
