In Venice, the surprising city suspended on the waters of the lagoon, we have thought up and developed a cultural project that allows access to cultural assets of incredible quality and value via the use of new technologies: we hope that the result we are sharing with you will arouse the sense of wonder that gives its name to the project!
Through the use of a three-dimensional view of objects and spaces, absolutely astonishing even in a world where daily use of technological applications makes everything seem simple and therefore ‘obvious’, we wish to contribute to making the knowledge of such assets as thorough as possible.
With the virtual reconstruction of the Palazzo Grimani Tribuna and of the Public Statuary of the Serenissima Republic of Venice and the repositioning of sculptures that previously formed collections, we made it possible to discover and enjoy - even if only virtually - two places of the past not seen in their original glory for centuries.
The commitment of the Region, the essential collaboration and availability of the organizations that look after the assets, the quality contribution of the experts who assisted us, the enthusiasm of all those who have been involved in the development and creation of the project, and the expertise of the firm that carried out the work have made the project what it is today, the result of a complex cultural activity, ambitious and challenging considering the value and size of the items involved, quite demanding of administrative resources, and innovative in terms of computerized cataloguing.
The commitment of the Region in using EU funding for cultural projects received the support of the 2007-2013 Italy-Slovenia Cross Border Cooperation Programme through the Strategic Project for the knowledge and enjoyment of shared cultural heritage– SHARED CULTURE.
