Cultural Heritage are almost always commented and analyzed by using references to figures of speech. In particular, metaphors and allegories are very frequent in ancient and historical documents, painting and sculptures. It is frequent to have some hints about the assets and their authors by comparing their contents with elements in the domain of the figures of speech to which the asset refer. In order to enable reasoning by figures of speech, we propose here a methodology able to link concepts in the domain of cultural assets, with concepts in the domain of the figure of speech. We show here how reasoning in all these domains help in discover some elements related to the cultural heritage that humans may neglect at first glance.

Abstract

Cultural Heritage are almost always commented and analyzed by using references to figures of speech. In particular, metaphors and allegories are very frequent in ancient and historical documents, painting and sculptures. It is frequent to have some hints about the assets and their authors by comparing their contents with elements in the domain of the figures of speech to which the asset refer. In order to enable reasoning by figures of speech, we propose here a methodology able to link concepts in the domain of cultural assets, with concepts in the domain of the figure of speech. We show here how reasoning in all these domains help in discover some elements related to the cultural heritage that humans may neglect at first glance.
