COD: ACSUPL-1 Categories: , ,


The volume, edited by Paola Moscati, deals with the theme of 'virtual museums', a reality that is born through the dematerialization of the 'museum' object and its representation through various computer techniques that allow not only the virtual reconstruction of the museum in the its objective reality, but also the use in new ways that allow you to obtain information and follow paths that in the traditional museum are difficult or even impossible to have.
The volume, written in English, is aimed at an international audience and reports many of the possibilities offered by information technology and of projects already carried out.
