Abstract En

For decades now standardization, homogenization, and harmonization of digital archaeological cartographic data in Italy has been a major topic of debate. The complex organization of state agencies, heterogeneously structured on different operational levels causes a disruption of the archaeological georeferenced information, one of the main problems that the SITAN (National Archaeological Geographic Information System) project aims to simplify and bring back to shared tools and languages. The paper will focus on the peculiarities of the ‘producers of information’, the different typology of data acquired and yet to be acquired, the possibilities of using them, and on forms of cooperation undertaken or in progress with different actors operating in the Sardinian regional context. A turbulent environment, in which the difference is more acute between protection of public property and the profit of private interests — a heated public debate strongly felt and discussed through the media.
