Current Digital Libraries (DLs) are mostly built around large collections of scarcely related objects. We aim at enriching the information space of DLs by introducing narratives, consisting of two main components: networks of events related to one another and to the DL resources through semantic links, and narrations of those events in texts. In order to introduce narratives in DLs, we developed a conceptualisation based on narratology and we expressed it using the CIDOC CRM and CRMinf as… 
A Wikidata-based tool for building and visualising narratives
A semi-automatic tool for constructing and visualising narratives, intended as networks of events related to each other by semantic relations, that obeys an ontology for narratives that was developed.
Introducing narratives in Europeana: A case study
A semi-automatic tool, which, on the basis of the ontology, supports the creation and visualisation of narratives, and it is shown how the tool has been employed to create a narrative of the life of the painter Gustav Klimt as a case study.
Representing narratives in digital libraries: The narrative ontology
This paper presents a conceptualization of the domain of narratives, and its specification through the Narrative Ontology (NOnt for short), expressed in first-order logic, and uses the SWRL rule language to express the axioms.
Mapping the Knowledge of Dante Commentaries in the Digital Context: A Web Ontology Approach
The aims and scope of a new digital library of Dante commentaries are introduced, built according to the Semantic Web standards and aiming to refine and extend the ontologies developed for Dante’s minor works to the more complex world of the Commedia.
Populating Narratives Using Wikidata Events: An Initial Experiment
The results of an initial experiment to detect and extract implicit events from the Wikidata knowledge base in order to construct a narrative in a semi-automatic way are presented.
Towards a knowledge base of medieval and renaissance geographical Latin works: The IMAGO ontology
In this article we present the first achievement of the Index Medii Aevi Geographiae Operum (IMAGO)—Italian National Research Project (2020–23), that is, the ontology we have created in order to
Rewriting History: Towards Diagrammatic Hypertext for Digital Historiography
As the approach enables the (re)presentation of history as diagram by means of diagrammatic reasoning according to Peircean semiotics I propose the label diagrammatic hypertext.
NLPHub: An e‐Infrastructure‐based text mining hub
A performance assessment is reported based on an annotated corpus of named entities, which demonstrates that NLPHub can improve the performance of the single‐integrated processes by cleverly combining their output.
The Shape of Time and Storifying Data : Modeling Historical Processes and their Temporal Dimension in Knowledge Graphs
With the advent of more advanced computer technologies and large digitisation programs in art museums, archives, and libraries it is now possible to study the history of works of art and the lives of
Representation of Socio-historical Context to Support the Authoring and Presentation of Multimodal Narratives: The Mingei Online Platform
In this article, the Mingei Online Platform is presented as an authoring platform for the representation of social and historic context encompassing a focal topic of interest. The proposed


Steps Towards a Formal Ontology of Narratives Based on Narratology
The conceptualization tries to capture fundamental notions of narratives as defined in narratology, such as fabula, narration and plot, based on the Semantic Web standards and on the CIDOC CRM ISO standard ontology.
A Hybrid Representational Proposal for Narrative Concepts: A Case Study on Character Roles
This paper provides a representation of roles based on the integration of a set of typicality-based semantic dimensions with their corresponding classical characterization in terms of necessary and sufficient conditions, using the Conceptual Spaces framework.
A Model for Digital Libraries and its Translation to RDF
This paper presents a data model and query language for digital libraries supporting identification, structuring, metadata support, re-use and discovery of digital resources, inspired by the Web.
A first-order logic expression of the CIDOC conceptual reference model
This paper provides such an apparatus by expressing the CRM as a first-order theory by providing a reduction of the theory to a datalog program, and shows how the program can be used to effectively query a knowledge base taking into account the logical consequences of the represented knowledge.
The CIDOC Conceptual Reference Module: An Ontological Approach to Semantic Interoperability of Metadata
This article presents the methodology that has been successfully used over the past seven years by an interdisciplinary team to create the International Committee for Documentation of the
Coupling conceptual modeling and rules for the annotation of dramatic media
An ontological approach to the domain of drama is presented by mapping the intentions of the characters onto the actions actually performed and by appraising the emotion felt by the characters in the drama by encoding respectively the conceptual model and the SWRL rules.
Representing Concepts in Formal Ontologies: Compositionality vs. Typicality Effects"
This paper outlines some proposals for concept representation in formal ontologies, which take into account suggestions from psychological research, and makes the basic assumption that knowledge representation systems whose design takes into account evidence from experimental psychology may therefore give better results in many applications.

The ABC model's ability to mediate and integrate between multimedia metadata vocabularies is evaluated by illustrating how it can provide the foundation to facilitate semantic interoperability between MPEG-7, MPEG-21 and other domain-specific metadata vocABularies.
Representing Story Plans in SUMO
This paper presents an ongoing work that investigates the use of Suggested Upper Merged Ontology (SUMO) to represent storytelling knowledge and its inference engine Sigma to query actions and events that may take place in the story to be generated.
