Arctic World Archive

Housed in an abandoned mine, the Gruve 3, there is the Arctic World Archive.
The innovative project created by the Norwegian company PIQL aims to preserve “all the memory of the world”. PIQL has created a film with a secret polymer formula made to last 500 years, but thanks to the conditions of the arctic, the aim is that it can stay preserved for a millennium. Data, including films, writings, paintings, photographs and everything else that humans have produced, and which represents our collective historical memory and identity are transferred onto the film. Among those which transferred data into the world archive Fpolaare the ESA, the Vatican Library, the Alinari Archives and the Cineteca di Bologna.
