On October 4, 2013, the VR visualisation of the Regolini-Galassi tomb, as part of the Etruscanning 3D project, was awarded the Italian Heritage Award for Communication and Dissemination of Cultural Heritage. The award was given to Eva Pietroni of CNR-ITABC, who was coordinating the technical part of the project.
The Etruscanning 3D team is very honoured to receive this prestigious award and wants to thank all involved partners and people that made this possible.
In the meantime, Etruscanning is preparing for its last stop in its world tour as part of the Italia del Futuro tour, it will go to Budapest.
Yesterday the exhibition The Etruscans – Una Storia Particolare closed after a very successful prolongation and 88.005 visitors! The Etruscanning setup performed flawlessly. Thanks to the team of the Tongeren museum! The virtual Regolini-Galassi tomb can be seen permanently in the Etruscan division of the Vatican Museums.
In the last week of October 2013, the Monte Michele Tomb application was demonstrated at the Digital Heritage Expo in Marseille. More than 5000 visitors were exploring the latest developments in digital heritage, including the attendees of the Digital Heritage 2013 conference. The application itself will be installed soon in the Villa Giulia museum in Rome. You can find a preview of the application here.
