Gallerie dell'Accademia - Venice
This innovative project, commissioned by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism, involves Venetian Heritage (coordinator) and Samsung (co-sponsor and technology provider), in partnership with ETT S.p.A. (multimedia installations).
It is a project that has combined an important sponsorship role with that of technological innovation, allowing visitors to explore and enjoy the new gallery wing that has been fitted out to the highest standards of modern museology.
Visitors are guided round the rooms by a mobile App, either pre-installed on a rentable tablet or downloaded onto personal devices. The mobile App is designed for various types of user (young children, youths and adults) and helps visitors explore some aspects and details of the works that are not immediately apparent. This makes a visit to the Gallerie dell’Accademia interesting to younger visitors too, and they can learn the history of the gallery and its works while also having fun.
The mobile application designed for children (5-10 years) and youths (10-16 years) has a number of games that accompany them on a guided tour of all five rooms, including a treasure hunt, memory and puzzles.
The tablet Mobile App for adults has some features that give access to more in-depth information. There are, for example, theme routes, including those which may have been selected on the welcome monitor, Augmented Reality, showing what occurred during restoration of artwork or displaying it in 3D mode.
