The UNESCO Convention of 2003 has promoted the growth of online inventories containing multimedia data, even if usually developed as data silos and searchable with different and rigid criteria. We present here a work-in-progress that aims to overcome these limits, studying the implementation of a system that allows to query different inventories simultaneously in the same way, whether they are local or not, overcoming the limit represented by data different languages and providing intuitive and attractive search tools. The query criteria designed combine keywords semantic together with temporal and space information to create useful tools for intangible heritage data. The main points are: the use of MultiWordNet to structure the document keywords, the generation of thematic paths, the creation of table games.
