Opening "Villa Livia Reloaded project" at Museo Nazionale Romano

In 2013, ITABC - CNR, in collaboration with the Soprintendenza Speciale ai Beni Archeologici di Roma, E.V.O.CA. s.r.l. and the european network of excellence, has updated  the "Virtual Museum of the Ancient Via Flaminia" project (2006 - 2008), focusing mainly on Livia's Villa, one of the most important site among the ones previously studied and documented. Starting from digital acquisition on the field, both the archaeological landscape and the actual site have been modeled in 3D, together with the reconstruction of how this context could have been in the past, in particular during the augustan age. The 3D scenarios have been implemented in a Virtual Reality application using mid-air gesture based Interaction. The installation introduces a novel approach in combining different media and languages: real time exploration, cinematographic paradigms, virtual set practices.
The opening to the public has been on the 27th of March at the Roman National Museum-Diocletian's Baths, in Rome.
