The Virtual Lab project

 

Virtual Lab Project

A Competence Centre for Citizens, the Academic, Culture and Industry world.

VirtualLab is a project born of an Arsenal idea and developed thanks to the encouragement and contribution of some qualified university teachers and Culture operators. VirtualLab, whose first stage will end by 2005 and that will end by 2006, will have two distinct functions.


Virtual Heritage

Recently the virtual reconstruction of archaeological sites, typically done on scientific basis and meant for not only a specialized use but also for educational and entertainment purposes, has seen many initiatives in Europe, in the Middle-East and also in the US where, if on one hand there are rare relevant historical situations, on the other hand there is most of the research in this discipline.

Most of those installations, that are often integrated in museums with other different means of exposition, included the classic ones, are crowned with success and rewarded with the great interest that the younger generations manifest.

Among the best projects, a special mention goes to the city of Ename (Belgium), the Archaeological Park & Davidson Center in Jerusalem. In Italy, it is worth to mention the immersive installation by the CINECA of Bologna, with the reconstruction of the medieval town and the Multimedia Room in the Scrovegni chapel in Padua.
