In 2021 a group of researchers and students on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean toasted ten years of The Medieval Kingdom of Sicily Image Database project ( This collection of historical images of medieval monuments in Southern Italy was launched in 2011. Its purpose was to document the complex history of this highly diverse patrimony with visual documents that testify to the cultural richness of the Italian South. Online since October 2016, the project was fostered by Caroline Bruzelius at Duke University (NC). It has now become an invaluable research and study tool thanks to her charisma and her indefatigable enthusiasm in the face of ever-new intellectual challenges. Both these gifts have helped her become as much a leading light in the world of Digital Humanities as she had already become in the field of medieval architecture. The papers presented in this volume, authored by both her colleagues and students, pay tribute to her and celebrate ten years of the project. They reap the harvest of the ambitious and visionary idea that Caroline Bruzelius planted to set it all in motion.

With a re-published essay by Caroline Bruzelius and Paola Vitolo (2016).
