is an open platform, created to promote the development of new
services from third parties and to bring ICT innovation to all
institutions, even the minor ones that have been excluded from the
process of digitisation until now.
part of an ever-increasing national strategy for the enhancement of
the immense artistic and cultural heritage, the VASARI project sets
the latest innovations in digital technologies to radically change
the activities of Valorization, enjoyment and management of artworks,
for both museums and open-air.
goal is a paradigm shift: to build a new cultural space in which the
physical spaces of museums and historical sites with their patrimony
of works are integrated into the digital space of Cultural and
interconnected content and services in a multi-site logic.
visitor and the works are at the center of this space where
knowledge, fruition and participation of citizens and tourists is
encouraged, while the management, the enhancement and the cooperation
of cultural institutions is facilitated.
intends to maximise the social and economic impacts linked to the
enhancement of the artistic patrimony: the artwork becomes a powerful
social aggregator and the visitor is involved in his own process of
knowledge that controls directly and continues to develop
incrementally thanks to the multiplicity of sites and museums
interconnected to the platform.
proposal emphasizes the need for integration between the physical
space and the corresponding digital space of each museum in stark
contrast with recent attempts to build digital platforms that favour
a passive navigation of the only cultural content.
only through the on-site visit the visitor has access to the vast
ecosystem of digital services and content that promotes cultural
tourism on the territory, thus encouraging the development of a
territorial economy of the support industries.
addition, the VASARI
platform will be designed to be open and promote the development of
an economy based on SMEs specializing in the provision of cultural
services linked to the heritage of its territory (associations,
guides, cultural publishing).
