Launching YourTopia Italia: Progress in Italy, defined by You

Academics and international institutions have struggled with employing measures of human development which go beyond GDP per capita: education, health the the economy, but then what values do we attach to these? In countries like Italy stark regional differences have dominated over time. Particularly in times of fiscal austerity when the country attempts to recover from an economic crisis with major social consequences, seeing how and why the South and the North differ is an important step in a consensus-building process to find solutions and realise collaboration with the citizens.

The Digital Public Library of America, Me, and You. Twenty years ago Roy Rosenzweig imagined a compelling mission for a new institution: “To use digital media and computer technology to democratize history—to incorporate multiple voices, reach diverse audiences, and encourage popular participation in presenting and preserving the past.”

The Digital Public Library of America, Me, and You

I’ve been incredibly lucky to be a part of that mission for over twelve years, at what became the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, with last five and a half years as director. Today I am announcing that I will be leaving the center, and my professorship at George Mason University, the home of RRCHNM, but I am not leaving Roy’s powerful vision behind.

Instead, I will be extending his vision—one now shared by so many—on a new national initiative, the Digital Public Library of America. Top Documentary Films. My name is Vlatko and I'm the owner of this site.

Top Documentary Films

It all started some time ago when I "fell in love" with documentaries in quest for more knowledge. I then started searching for documentaries and found a whole bunch and decided to put them all on this site. It's just an information scattered around the web and then assembled and categorized in an easy to use website called Top Documentary Films. The content here is created with a passion for documentary films, the site is in open form and it is allowing readers to add comments about documentary films they like or dislike.

TDF offers full watchable documentaries in hope to provide a valuable resource to those with an interest in documentary films and to help independent documentary filmmakers and festival coordinators promote their films and events. In case you decide to buy your favorite documentary film, or you want to get some more information on some of the docs please go to the store.
