The Italian cultural heritage is one of the most famous and wide in the world, but unfortunately, under risk of destruction. The Italian government has started a project to de.ne the risk map of Italian cultural heritage (MARIS). Starting from this real example we describe an example of cooperative and mobile information system devoted to acquire data about cultural heritages in an electronic way through a set of cooperative processes. In this paper we show features of such information system and we analyze in a critical way the main challenges that both information system and middleware designers have to face in order to realize the example we show. Moreover we present an attempt to characterize the elaboration capability of devices of an information system, by means of a dynamic definition, with the goal to evaluate which processes can be hosted in devices within a distributed and mobile environment.
