About Me

Giulio Menna

Personal Interests

I am extremely interested in western medieval manuscripts and digital humanities. I have fun developing new ways to get access to digitized material. I enjoy researching and sharing what I know.

I am also a bit of a geek and have a lot of fun assembling computers and testing hardware to see if it can be tweaked. Along that I also love automation and investigating how technology can render our life easier.

Founder and Developer of Sexy Codicology and the Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Maps (DMMmaps) project

I manage a popular blog about medieval manuscripts and digital humanities. It’s aim is to spread the interest in these books and their digital versions.
