The Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture promotes the construction of web platforms - creating them directly or collaborating with other institutions - which collect censuses and maps of the various forms of contemporary art and architecture, as well as urban spaces. The aim is to enhance the contemporary by returning a series of cognitive tools to the public of professionals and users.

Launched in 2002, it is based on a unified filing methodology and on homogeneous selection criteria applied throughout the Italian territory. It is created by the DGCC with the involvement of the peripheral structures of the Ministry in collaboration with the Universities in order to identify contemporary architectures of historical and artistic interest.

Platform that collects data from the Archives of video art and artist films project in Italy, promoted by the DGCC and the universities of Torino, Milano Bicocca, Udine and Sapienza of Roma, with the collaboration of the ICCD. The project aims to survey the funds and stocks of works and documentations in video and film (from 1965 to today) distributed throughout the country, in public and private institutions.

The online archive "RAAM - AMACI Museums Archive Research" aims to raise awareness of the consistency and quality of the contemporary art heritage, from 1966 to today, of the AMACI Museums network - Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums. Created by the will of the DGCC and AMACI, it is an agile tool for knowledge and research of contemporary public heritage.

The project, born from the collaboration between the Ministry of Culture (ICCD and DGCC) and Camera - Italian Center for Photography, is a participatory and shared tool capable of returning, on a single portal, information on the type, consistency, origin and characteristics of the photographic heritage present in our territory.

The filing of the districts created for the public initiative and built between the 1960s and 1990s is the result of a research promoted throughout the country by the DGAAP (former acronym of the current DGCC) with the collaboration of three research groups, the University of Roma La Sapienza, the II University of Napoli, and the Association Landscape of Torino.

The "Duepercento" platform aims to illustrate what has been produced up to now thanks to the Law 717/49: a tool for creating works of art in public buildings, a stimulus for future projects. Among its institutional tasks, the DGCC has precisely that of 'supervising' the application of the Law 717/49, both to promote and facilitate its implementation and to qualify the interventions.

The Observatory is aimed at promoting the reuse of spaces for creative, artistic and cultural purposes, supported by the DGCC with the aim of spreading and strengthening knowledge and the exchange of good practices in terms of redevelopment of the suburbs and more generally of creative regeneration of cities and territories.
