Description of resource In June 2014, Sabina Ciuffini–Giannini’s granddaughter and herself a famous media presence in Italy–granted access to her family’s holdings of Guglielmo Giannini’s theatrical and political documents. This was the first time Giannini’s cache of invaluable materials was entrusted to someone outside the family. This privileged access enabled these exceptional holdings to be systematically sorted, identified, documented and digitally preserved. Because we were unable (and reluctant) to move the materials from Ciuffini’s apartment in Milan, most were scanned there. We collected roughly 7000 digitised pages from these holdings. Scanning took over two years to complete. In addition to Giannini’s family holdings, we have collected over 3000 pages consisting of plays written by Giannini and published in the review Il Dramma and other theatre magazines holdings (photographs as well as clippings) generously shared with us from the Centro Studi del Teatro Stabile in Turin issues of the magazine Kines (founded and directed by Giannini) all the surviving issues of Kines' supplement Cinema-Star, which was also founded and headed by Giannini.
