The aim of this study is to stimulate interest in searching the Electronic Archive of Carlo Emilio Gadda's Works and the web site dedicated to this important Italian author in order to receive and implement suggestions, and to create new lexical resources for students, translators and readers. The article starts with a brief description of the editorial features of this Archive, that runs under the 2004 version of the Textual DataBase (DBT), and continues with the presentation of the web site, to be intended as a cultural laboratory containing texts by Gadda, bibliographical data, links and special lexicographic resources developed in three ways: by applying simple DBT functions (Hapax Legomena List, Index Locorum and Concordances), by submitting results to the semi-automatic lemmatization process (Concordances lemmatized), and by using multiple Archive outputs to be transformed into new DBT archives.
