This contribution describes a job that took inspiration from the innovations introduced by decree of president of the republic 3 November 2000, n. 396, concerning the civil status review and simplification, identifying main objective is to provide guidance on the method for digitization of the civil status records by the decree required that through the development of guidelines, rules and technical and organizational standard shared. The work represents the fruit of a great collective effort, involving researchers with deep knowledge in the computer science and archival field, people with enthusiasm and intelligence they were compared on the search for a common language to be used to understand what were the problems of record keeping. The debate around these issues has allowed us to better understand what were the difficulties of a science, especially with regard to the retention, in a digital archive, the archivistic lynk, a concept that has a very strong echo in the archival thematic dealing with the problem of document management. The collaboration between the archival and information technology has been intended to study and develop a model of interdisciplinary cooperation that led to the establishment of a research area that could be called ”digital archival science” in which to analyze cultural and technological models for the documents conservation and information processing in a digital environment. Here are the three stages of research:• analysis of the scenario and the existing regulatory framework;• weakness analysis of the main system;• proposals for overcoming the weaknesses and develop a new model for automated workflows and records management of civil status in Italy - to draw some consideration and analysis, in particular, on aspects of the proposed model can be ”exported” with successful case study considered - the system of civil status in Italy - and to other possible applications.
