Virtual tours and immersive reality
Technology at the service of tourism in Verona
Following the Covid-19 emergency breakout, technology is supporting the tourism and art industry, virtually bringing the artistic and cultural beauties of our country to the houses of all citizens.
The virtual tour is an excellent way to discover the territory, while we are waiting to enjoy the inestimable artistic heritage of our beautiful country, in real life.
Here are some alternative ways to experience Verona through an innovative experiential activity.
Virtual tours in the museums of Verona
The Covid-19 emergency has forced the closure of museums all over Italy, but the pandemic is not stopping art! The Musei Civici in Verona participate to the awareness campaign # iorestoacasa , launching the hashtag # MuseoAgile .
The Museums of Verona and the collectors, joined forces to create a mini video virtual tour and made it accessible through social channels and institutional websites.
An unmissable opportunity to travel through history and art while staying at home.
The first two museums that joined the initiative were the Castelvecchio Museum and the Natural History Museum. By sharing multimedia content and video pills called “Visti da vicino, visti sul web”, viewers can virtually enjoy the collections through guided tours led by Francesca Rossi, director of the Civic Museums of Verona and Leonardo Latella, head of the Zoology department of the Natural History Museum.
All the initiatives are available on the official website of the Civic Museums of Verona ( https://museicivici.comune.verona.it/ ) and the social channels:
