Abstract
Once discovered, an archaeological find starts a sort of new "life-cycle", throughout which it will cross several events sometimes repeatedly. Just for its discovery, each find brings with it several information. Each event it may cross (restoration, study, exhibition etc.) generates as well additional information. Despite the fundamental role in such domain, information is often considered as individual knowledge, not specifically managed, and then not available to persons different from the ones implied in each single event. This work therefore introduces an exploratory case of study whose main goal is the analysis of the ArcheoTRAC information system and its supporting role in knowledge management processes involving cooperation among different subjects and organizations. In particular, the study will focus on the role of the ArcheoTRAC system in fostering knowledge creation and knowledge transformation processes and in exploiting available knowledge in these processes.
