Istituto Luce has also supported, with its infrastructure, the Audiovisual Archive of the Democratic Workers Movement, the Film Library of Friuli, the Folco Quilici archive, the central film Archives of Albania, the Libraries of the City of Rome. The sharing of the information structure has based on building of a SKOS encoded thesaurus which now has exceeded more than 66,000 headwords (in house xDams project).
