What they say about us

  • When the study of computer code has academic value, digital archeology will be a science and universities will offer classes on digital evolution and conservation. Meanwhile, PADICAT is the closest thing we have to travel back in time to enjoy the digital heritage of Catalonia.

    Roberta Bosco, specialized journalist in contemporary art and digital culture
  • Thanks to PADICAT, Catalonia plays in the "Champions League" of digital heritage management. PADICAT will avoid that in the future we get more information from the press of the XIXth century than from the blogosphere of the XXIst.
