During 2008, Sergio’s company co-produced with BassmArt srl, belonging to the group of companied managing the Polo Museale Fiorentino, a CD-ROM including a state-of-the-art Virtual Tour of the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence.
This production features a unique format, based on a full-screen, Virtual Reality interface, in which the visitor is at the center of the scene, and he is able to interact with the works of art in the room.
The user is even able to zoom-in into some of the works of art, which are explained via a text description or audio clips.
Apart from this unique multimedia interface, classical menus are also available. It’s also possible to move inside the Accademia Gallery via a map, which contains a direct link to all VR pictures, and the relative rooms, inside the application.
The CD is for sale at the Galleria’s Bookshop. A preview of the work can be seen via a multimedia kiosk, also located in the bookshop.
In 2012, a new version of the CD has been released, featuring the new first floor layout of the Galleria.
