In recent years Italian Public History has gone through a process that has transformed it from a series of practices to a more institutionalised discipline. The university teaching and research activities in Public History have to deal with the problem of the discipline’s recognition in a rigid academic system that is based on pre-determined disciplinary areas and in which unconventional research outcomes are discouraged. In this context, the innovative experience of the Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities (VeDPH) at Ca’ Foscari University constitutes a new model of interaction between Public History and universities, with a targeted recruitment and the organisation of a broad range of activities in the field.
