Abstract: In the International Year of Astronomy, the four-hundredth anniversary of the first Galilean observation of the Moon and the Jupiter medicei satellites, the Italian astronomical observatories libraries of the INAF (National Institute for Astrophysics) created a web portal for the national historical archive for astronomy. In this paper, we present and describe the web pages that collect information from all twelve of the Italian astronomical archives. It is the first Italian project to show in a complete and homogeneous way the treasures hiding in folders and sheets. Each archive presents analytic abstracts, an index of papers and an extensive gallery of images.
