A large-scale national project to digitize the archive of plates of the Italian observatories and Specola Vaticana has started in 2002 following a pilot program funded by the University of Padova in 2001. Identical systems, composed of commercial scanners plus dedicated personal computers and acquisition software have been installed in all participating institutions. High quality photometric sequences are provided by the Campo Imperatore telescopes. The digitized information is distributed to all interested researchers via the international web. This paper presents some of the activities carried out and the results obtained.
