Surf this website:There are various ways to navigate this website:
in the various sections of the site the various videos can be consulted, searchable by category, by the most viewed or most shared content on youtube.
- It is also possible, through free search, to search for videos by name, by content, by category or by tag.
Categories are distinguished by historical period and subsequently in subcategories, it is possible to select a specific historical period and view the videos, the site will then directly suggest the next video if linked to the same intervention (because already divided into several videos on youtube) or on the same topic or in the same historical period.
It then possible to watch a video on a topic and then let the site suggest automatically another content by continuing the historical journey that has begun.
Videos are finally localized by geographical area. Again a specific historical path can continue automatically but be contextualized to a specific place.
On this collection, edited by Alessandro Braccini, the editor has no agreements with Professor Barbero other than the approval to collect and reclassify his material, freely distributed via the internet.
Alessandro BracciniPassionate about history and Professor Barbero's videos, I decided to create this site to facilitate the use of the Professor's audiovisual contents in a single and organized container, and to give free access to anyone else interested.
