Virtual Renaissance at your fingertips
European research project composed by nine different institutions from Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria and the USA – including Libnamic.
The aim of the M3Dici project is to put Cultural Patrimony in context: its history, origin, environment, etc. through the use of virtual reality techniques applied to the Humanities.
The virtual worlds we explore and contextualize are two places closely connected to the Florentine Renaissance, a museum and a library: the well-known Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze and the ancient library of the Badia Fiesolana - today the seat of the European University Institute. This collection of the Medici family is now kept in the Medicea Laurenziana Library and it includes manuscripts of great importance.
The objects from these two sites will be offered for their study in an interactive virtual environment that will place the documents in their original format and location.
