This paper aims at introducing possible guidelines in defining a protocol for the curation and dissemination of speech archives, which appear to have – de jure – the highest restrictions on their curation and dissemination. This case study has been undertaken because of the discovery of the Anna Maria Bruzzone archive, containing the voices of people with mental disabilitie recorded in 1977 in an Italian psychiatric hospital.
