In this period marked by the global pandemic, Virtual Tours are a precious resource as they offer the unique opportunity of an unprecedented and highly immersive remote visit of the museums heritage.
A digital experience that goes beyond spatial limits, an unprecedented, and highly immersive visit, to virtually travel, from a PC and Smartphone, to discover the beauty of the city's museums.
Thanks to the latest technologies, innovative multimedia content, and more accessibility, the new virtual tours, updated and expanded, allow you to visit over 300 rooms and thousands of works from 8 civic museums and offer a simulated free itinerary enriched with images, videos, and texts.
The tours of the Capitoline Museums, Ara Pacis Museum, Napoleonic Museum, Trajan's Markets, Casino Nobile of Villa Torlonia, Centrale Montemartini, Museum of Rome, and Museo delle Mura are available in both Italian and English.
Thanks to the use of virtual reality, the most innovative technology on the market, you can enjoy the tours from any type of device, even from smartphones and tablets, with additional supports such as special cardboard or VR viewers. This requires a simple web address, which makes them shareable on all social networks and sendable via WhatsApp. The new Virtual tours cover almost the entire museum space. They are enriched with numerous multimedia contents, with 360 ° photographs that can be navigated through a special control panel to move virtually inside the rooms, with explanatory panels of the rooms and works, with commands to zoom and 360 ° rotate the image, video maps, and more.
The navigation interface also has new features. Through the "not to be missed" section, a practical visual list of selected works or rooms, you can take advantage of this useful tool if you are new to the museum and or are visiting it for the first time. Just click on the chosen work, and you will be virtually transported to the room that hosts it.
The tours are equipped with smart maps that follow you from room to room, indicating the rooms and works not yet displayed.
Last but not least, Capitoline Museums, Ara Pacis Museum, Napoleonic Museum, Trajan's Markets - Museum of the Imperial Fora, and the Casino Nobile of Villa Torlonia offer a further novelty. Thanks to next-gen drones, you will be able to fly over the rooms to admire the works from above, enjoying a brand-new and unprecedented perspective of the visit.
The project is promoted by Roma Culture, Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali, produced by Zètema Progetto Cultura and implemented by Skylab Studios, with the scientific direction of the Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali.
