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.

Alla scoperta del Museo di Castelvecchio

È la voce di Francesca Rossi, direttrice dei Musei Civici di Verona, a guidarci in una sorprendente passeggiata tra le opere del Museo di Castelvecchio uno dei più importanti musei della città di Verona che, con le sue 29 sale espositive, presenta collezioni di arte medievale, rinascimentale e moderna fino al XVIII secolo.

Il museo, restaurato  alla fine degli anni ’50 sotto la guida del progettista Carlo Scarpa, si trova all’interno del complesso della fortezza scaligera di Castelvecchio.

Partendo dal cortile della piazza d’Armi e proseguendo nella suggestiva galleria delle Sculture, una delle parti più conservate dell’allestimento di Carlo Scarpa, è possibile ripercorrere gli spazi e le opere del museo attraverso video fruibili gratuitamente online.

Si possono ammirare, tra le diverse opere, la Madonna della Quaglia di Pisanello e i dettagli della Sacra famiglia di Mantegna.

Il Museo di Storia Naturale sul web

Il Museo Civico di Storia Naturale ha sede nel Palazzo Lavezzola Pompei, un’importante edificio cinquecentesco della città di Verona, commissionato dalla ricca famiglia Lavezzola all’architetto Michele Sanmicheli.

L’edificio dispone di prestigiose collezioni scientifiche e naturalistiche raccolte in sedici sale espositive dedicate allo studio di minerali e rocce, paleontologia e zoologia. Il museo, dall’inestimabile valore artistico e culturale, svolge anche un ruolo centrale nella ricerca scientifica e nella divulgazione della cultura naturalistica

Nell’ambito dell’iniziativa “Visti da vicino, visti sul web”: il museo entra nelle case dei cittadini grazie a contenuti multimediali caricati sui canali social. Numerose le collezioni presentate sul web: dagli erbari agli invertebrati e calabridi, ai lepidotteri. Importante spazio è dedicato poi alla conservazione e alla ricerca.

Virtual initiatives at Palazzo Maffei

The museum-house was opened to the public in 2020 and it offers numerous initiatives through its Facebook ( @ palazzomaffei ) and Instagram ( @ palazzomaffeiverona ) pages. Some events are dedicated to Mario Schifano, Umberto Boccioni, Giacomo Balla, Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso, René Magritte, Marcel Duchamp, Renato Guttuso and Emilio Vedova, Leandro Erlich .
