The DH L@unch is an Italian Studies + Digital Humanities workshop open to everyone in the Colby community (students, faculty, and staff) that we offered in the spring of 2017.
It met for lunch in Miller 205 on Tuesdays from 1pm to 2:30pm. Everyone was invited to come and see our digital work, ask us questions, give us feedback, and learn how to use Neatline (the platform we utilized for our geo-spatial work).
The Navigli Project is our current Digital Humanities project that we started developing in the fall of 2016 in a Humanities Lab. This Neatline exhibit displays and narrates the visual, thick history of water in the city of Milan, Italy and can be explored by clicking the points on the map, scrolling along the timeline, opening each of the listed records or by following one of the “Itineraries.”

The Navigli Project is a digital map of Milan’s waters that displays and narrates the visual, thick history of water in the city of Milan, Italy. It is an interactive resource for students, researchers, and the general public interested in discovering and learning about Milan’s disappeared canals and current plans to bring them back. It comprises several layers of history, politics, literature, architecture, sound, video, photography, andgeography that show the different factors that throughout the centuries have created the cityscape of Milan today. The map can be explored by clicking the points on the screen, scrolling along the timeline, opening each of the listed records or by following one of the “Itineraries.” The Navigli Project was developed in the Humanities Lab titled IT397A City of Water. Uncovering Milan’s Aquatic Geographies in the fall of 2016, and is also the main project being curated and expanded at the DH L@unch.
