Nouvelles technologies et valorisations d'un patrimoine : les marbres, des Pyrénées à Versailles

Abstract : This thesis focuses on the enhanced promotion of the the French Pyrenees’ marble heritage through the use of mobile technologies. It aims to question the role of the art historian in the development of these activities on such territories. The quarrying of these Pyrenean marbles, a valued geological resource, dramatically transformed the makeup of mountainous landscapes and shaped the architecture of royal palaces; these marbles are an integral part of our heritage, in both tangible and intangible forms. Their promotion is multifaceted, invoking our perception of the landscape, of sustainable development, and of the concept of terroir itself. From a heritage point of view, mobile technologies offer new channels for cultural mediation. They therefore open up new avenues which can be seized upon by those involved in the promotion of this patrimony. Thanks to the support of Camineo, a company specialising in the interpretation of the marble heritage through mobile technologies, two projects were led in conjunction: one in the Pyrenees and the other on the Domaine du Trianon in Versailles. This has enabled us to question the contribution of history of art in the production of outreach material about this heritage, and more generally, on our perception of the environment.
