This project focuses on an exceptional historical source, the “Accordi dei Garzoni” of the Venetian State Archives, currently being digitised. This document series contains approximately 60.000 apprenticeship contracts, from 1573 to the year 1773. These contracts give precise information about the “masters” who were active in Venice in almost all kind of guilds. They also contain relevant information for understanding the functioning of their workshops or ateliers, documenting in particular where they were located. Whereas apprenticeship’s contracts are usually found scattered in the guilds’ archives or in the notary records, the “Accordi dei Garzoni” is a serial and compact source, which allows for a systematic method a study. Our project introduces a new approach for transcribing and studying such kind of document series. Exploiting the recurrent structure of these administrative records, a semi-automatic transcription process will be designed and tested. This process will feed a semantic database in which the content of each contract will be encoded, along with meta-historical information documenting the encoding process. The information extracted will then be aligned with a geo-historical database allowing spatial visualisation of the distribution of the workshops in Venice and the evolution of these patterns through time.The resulting, structured open access database will be used by our team of historians to investigate new research questions regarding the economy of apprenticeship, the links between apprenticeships, arts and architecture and the question of apprenticeship in relation with family and gender roles. As the database constituted in this project will be the largest and most detailed ever constructed on this subject, it is expected that this project will be the basis of renewed understanding of the transmission of technical knowledge between generations in early modern Venice. It also aims at pioneering a new computational approach for studying such kind of administrative document series.
